Problems upgrading a Packard bell iconnect

Hello could someone please help?

I just upgraded a Packard Bell i-connect with new M/board, CPU, memory and HDD:

M/board - asrock K7S-41GX
CPU - AMD Sempron 2400
Memory - 256 mb DRR (333)
HDD - Hitachi 80 GB (2 mb cache)

I installed the hardware and then installed windows M.E. on the HDD, all was going well until, while trying to set up the motherboard drivers I got all sorts of errors popping up.
I restarted and more errors came up.
I dont know what could be the problem.

Thank you in advance for your assistance

Sorry all, thanks for the help but it turned out
the motherboard was faulty. Swapped it for another and it worked just fine.

thanks again for the help
