Your old and new system specs would be helpful.

Did you reinstall windows after you got the new board or did you try booting from your old installation?

I had to reformat and install windows to get my system running again. This is a must if your changing chipsets (nForce 2 IGP to nForce 2 400 in my case). The lines could be cause from fried system or video memory during the installation.
