that's what i thought, i put the o/s disc in and restarted the computer, the system took the disc started to load components and then before the menu (r=repair ..... etc) it restarted again. would you suggest formatting the hard disk and starting from scratch?
Even before you reformat the disk just check that the cpu fan is working and you are not shutting down due to over heating. Next hit the delete key or F2 and check all is okay within the Bios, then is the time to reformat your drive.
have you sorted your problem out. i have the same mobo and may know what your problem is. did your old mobo have nforce 2 chipset or different make of chipset via, sis, etc:.
if chipset was different to you new mobo and you haven't done a clean install, this will more than likely be the problem. if you have done a clean install and you are getting the problem list you components and what memory you have and in what slots and what happens when you start the computer.
