Hi,
I just got a new mobo ASUS A7V600, plugede everthing in, booted and when it gets to the log on screen it restarts after about 2-3 seconds. It is not a new windows install and the hdd is master on the primary IDE channel.

system has:
AMD 2600
512 meg of ram (2*256)
geforce 4MX 440

Any ideas?

which is proberly half the problem. either reinstall, repair or see if you can get to run in safe mode and remove previous drivers.

haven't tried it myself.
