Can you get the error code from the bluescreen? It would really help in figuring out this problem.

Did you install Windows 7 on your old components, and then upgrade to all these new ones? if so, your Windows install needs repairing. Put the disc in, and select "Repair" at the appropriate point. Windows might well be booting up, looking for all the old components, finding the new ones, getting confused, and falling over.

As DeeTee indicated - What's happening is the (old) installation is looking for the old components. It doesn't have the drivers/settings needed to boot the new. You may try to repair your installation using your Win 7 DVD, but if that doesn't work:


(1) Set aside your old hard drive - leave it disconnected.

(2) Do a Clean install of the operating system to the new Hard Drive
(2a) Update, patch, etc... Once all is running:

(3) Re-connect your old hard drive to retrieve your data.

Most of the time you can get away with simply adding in a new cpu or motherboard and not have to reinstall the OS (this used to be a very rare occurrence but Windows seems a little more forgiving now), but there are still situations where it simply can't be avoided. As scotteq said, try repairing the existing install of Windows, but if it doesn't work, you're going to have to install a fresh copy.
