Your system configuration and bios are not set correctly to accommodate the new hardware. It is better to use the original operating system disk to do a repair installation without re-formatting the hard drive. Upon reinstalling the operating system, the configuration will set up the correct drivers.
Backup all your files, and have your system drivers, motherboard drivers on disk, ready to install. If you are not sure how to do this, a computer tech can do it for you.
