Default A strange problem after installing Windows XP SP3 OEM (clean install)

Hi all

I have a really irritating problem

I inserted the Windows XP cd into this computer I have in which i replaced the motherboard in to an Asrock G31M-S R2.0 as the motherboard previousely had an intergrated Graphics error, anyway I got it installed and on the first boot as always I inserted the CD that came with the motherboard to get the Chipset drivers installed etc.

For a start the auto run doesn't open so I go to my computer and try to load it from there but the whole PC freezes

One time I booted the computer with the Asrock cd in the drive and it got to the desktop but only the background appeared no start menu or anything else

It sat and sat there for ages....
SO i ejected the disc, and as soon as I did it continued to load everything

I have never come across somthing like this before

Please help

Thank you
