If you have installed a new motherboard you need to Repair XP as it doesn't always take to a new mobo.

I've had to do this twice in the last two-and-a-half years of using XP Pro.

You might/may also need to reinstall SP2 and any subsequent SP3 updates (those issued after SP2 in August 2004)

Set the Bios to boot from CD and, before you Save and Exit, have the XP installation disk in your CD/DVD drive.

You dont seem to understand my point bios is set to cd boot repair started ok after cd loaded files then pc needs to reboot to continue this is when power failed for some reason in house ,restarted pc booted to first xp screen green scrolling lines on then up comes message set up will now continue.After a few seconds screen goes blank hd light flashes then reboots this then keeps happening,have tried total restart from disc again repair yes then message appears upgrade has already been attempted try again yes.Reloads from begining all files from disc then reboots to continue gets to xp load screen then to set up will now continue then just restarts pc over and over from that message page.
