I just installed a new motherboard (Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H AMD785G Socket AM2+) and cpu (AMD Athlon II) in a computer. Now when I try to boot the computer it crashes when Windows (XP) starts to load, then it reboots, asks me if I should start Windows normally, and crashes again. I haven't touch the default bios on the computer.

Might be an idea to check your clock speed! Take lois's advice, did you fresh install, if internal hardware has changed windows will need reintalling. (Apart from CD rom or memory)

I'm trying the repair install as suggested by the article, but now I get an error that reads "The instruction at '0x7798105e' referenced memory at '0xf1cdbfe9.' The memory could not be 'read.'"

I've tried clicking both ok to terminate the program and cancel to debug, neither worked.
