    So you changed the mobo and cpu of your existing computer? Not a good idea. If you have a real xp cd you can try to repair the installation, else you'll probably have to boot from the cd and reformat. There are too many hardware dependancies and such for windows to work when you change the mobo. Hope you backed everything up.
    If you didn't, you can probably still access your files by moving the hard drive to another xp computer, and setting it as "slave".
