Default Windows XP Start Error...

I just recently upgraded my computer and i am now unable to start Windows XP. My computer boots up fine but then it gives me an error saying that it is unable to start Windows.
I am currently on my second computer.

These are the things i upgraded:
Graphics Card
Power Supply

Does anyone know an error in the hardware setup that would cause my computer to boot but not run Windows?

How fardo you boot before the error? Have you tried Safe mode. F8 upon booting up.

You didn't upgrade, you built a new computer and stuck the old HD in.... This should be in software section, because its a software problem. You need to reinstall windows, trying to save an xp install through a massive hardware change would likely be more trouble then its worth.
