I built a system with that board (I think, it was something with a Sis735) and had no trouble. Make sure you have the proper bios settings. Try clearing the CMOS. When you get into safe mode check to see if there are any IRQ conflicts and check in device manager to see if anything is funky. Let me know where this gets you. If you need more help send me a private message.
