    I have a PC I built myself that is about 1 year old. Recently I just replaced the mother board with an ECS P4M800PRO-M. At first, it seemed to be working fine. I'm not sure what the issue is now... It will load and let me get into bios everytime, but most of the time, it will not load the windows xp screen and the HD LED goes out. I've checked all my connections and jumper settings - nada. It will boot, just a matter of how many times I reboot it...

    Here are my full specs...

    Brand: Self Built
    Motherboard: ECS P4M800PRO-M
    CPU: Intel Pentium D 840 3.2GHz
    RAM: 2 X Ultra 512MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz
    Graphics: Radeon x800xl (256mb AGP) - connecting DVI-HDMI cable TV
    Master HD: Maxtor 200gb IDE
    PSU: Ultra 500w V-Series

    Built August 06, new Master HD in April 07, new motherboard 2 weeks ago.

    Thanks all, let me know if you need any more specs or info!

    Have you reinstalled windows?
    Unless the mobo is identical windows will not recognise it

    I did a fresh install of XP media center edition upon installation of the new mobo. It worked fine for about a week.

    My guesses from my research... (though I'm no expert, which is why I'm here)
    -CMOS issue?
    -PSU flaking
    -bad mobo
    -bad HD
