Help new computer wont boot into windows

ive just recived a new case, 650 watt psu, motherboard, core 2 quad Q8200 and an HD 4890. im using my old memory, hdd and dvd drives.

after fitting my stuff together in my new case and booting up i saw all the normal boot procedures + some starting screen for my MB. then once i got a choice to pick between my windows 7 and vista partitions i picked vista. the loading bar faintly appears onto the screen. then BAM and the computer restarts itself to go back through the cycle. same for windows 7 too.

could someone maybe point me in the direction of whats wrong, if you need more info ill provide anything!

thanks

  1. need info. what mobo? RAM? BIOS version?
  2. theres also a high pitch and possible crackling noise from somewhere in my pc, so im guessing somethings wrong with the psu?
  3. if you could break down what parts you have it would help a lot. We need to see a list to check out compatibility issues or poor quality parts or known reliability issues. It could be bad RAM or any of a number of things. any info you can supply would go a long way in helping us get you the correct info to help.
