It could be because your OS had the appropriate drivers loaded for the old board... when you swapped mobos, the os attempted on the fly to identify all the new parts, and replace them with the appropriate drivers. This is not foolproof. Depending on the OS, old drivers, and how close your new parts are, you will have varying degrees of success. Your registry may be all mucked up, so that it loads a lot of stuff that is unnecessary, and then causes conflicts that are not always apparent.

Since you can boot up, I recommend backing up all important data, get all your install and driver disks within arms reach, and start with a clean slate (format c: ). Troubleshooting, driver by driver can be a mess. (Then again, I'm lazy and always look for the easiest way to avoid problems).
