A computer question

Wondering if the collective brain here knew something or other about computers as it's too late to contact a technician at the computer store tonight...


My boyfriend was trying to upgrade his computer today but things aren't working very nicely together.

He's using his old:
Old harddrive (ATA)

With a new:
Motherboard
Processor
Ram
Power supply (650 watts)
Case

When he turns on the computer, this is what happens:

Sits on a black screen for a bit.
Flashes intel splash screen.
Flashes "Would you like to load SATA bios?"
Wierd letters on bottom that cycle through twice.
Sits on black screen.
Keyboard and mouse lights go out and become non-responsive.
Sits on windows loading screen for a long time.
Sits on black screen for a long time.
Windows login screen with no cursor or mouse.
Blue screen of death.
Computer restarts.


Any suggestions of what could be wrong?


[Edit]
Are these two compatible:
-Intel Core2 Duo E6400
-Intel Motherboard D975xdx
