Hi youngorn ...
Is eveything connected to the MOBO correctly?
Is the CPU seated properly?

The rebooting part is because you neglected to set something before you changed your motherboard: The IDE controller drivers in Device Manager to standard. (See see this tweak for more on that.)

As it is, Windows XP is very savvy about you changing hardware. It now tries to boot up with all the drivers that were used on the old motherboard, but it can't find the IDE drivers for yours, so it will reboot. Changing the driver for the IDE controllers to Windows standards makes sure Windows will load, so you can install the correct motherboard chipset drivers.

As for the new CPU, did you go into your BIOS and set your correct Front Side Bus speed? It's 133 (quadruppled inside the CPU that makes 4x133=533MHz). The Intels are mulitplier locked, so your multiplier should be shown correctly (21).

I got the new cpu to work thank you but I still can't get windows to start, I changed the drivers to standard and when I boot up the new mobo I get the screen where you select start windows normally or safe mode and when I select any of them the computer freezes, when I select safe mode it runs through the files and then freezes

Do you have your harddrive connected to the IDE controller or on a SATA controller?

It would have been better for you to start your own thread, as I am unsure what you have done to the system. If you cannot boot into safe mode or normal mode place your windows cd in the cd drive and Perform a Repair Installation
