OK, so I got a new motherboard for an old system today. I put it in, and started up, and all was excellent for 10 mins while I was installing new drivers. However, at this point it crashed without blue screen. Now when I turn it on, it just shows the windows xp loading bar, then it restarts or shuts down. I tried putting the old motherboard back in, same problem. I tried a windows xp install from another hard drive, same problem. I tried changing the memory, same problem. Some of the times, when I turn the computer on, it just instantly (1-3 seconds) shuts down. I have no clue what was going on.
Info: Old Mobo: Biostar G31-M7 TE New Mobo: Asus P5QL-VM DO Memory : Crutial or Crutial's Rendition, all 1GB HDD 1+2 : 500 GB WD Green HDD 3 : 500 GB Segate Barracuda 7200.11 CPU : Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3Ghz
I hope I posted this in the right area, all comments appreciated, especially the ones that help me solve this. Thanks -Martin a.k.a no_one11

can you get into Save Mode?
No, I can't enter safe mode.
I also did a clean install just now, and I think it is doing the same thing, just slower. I am going to sleep now, so I cannot respond to any comments until tomorrow.
