when looking for a cpu for the socket 370, be sure to NOT get the socket 370 cpu that is made for servers.
this type requires a motherboard made specifically for that type cpu.
use a search engine to find out how to tell if it is a socket 370 server CPU, there is not enough space here for me to explain it. in that search you will also find out how to determine the answer to your question about cpu's supported by that motherboard..
most socket 370 based systems run pretty well, so you have a good machine there, and it's worth your time to keep it running, and to upgrade it.
you need to go ahead and let it start in sfae mode, check any changes that you made recently to your software & hardware, programs and drivers.
This is normal for windows to open this way IF you have shut the computer down in a way windows thinks there was a problem , or is a problem.
In safe mode windows does not load all the third party software , just enough to get windows up so you can find a problem.
Soo let it start in safe mode , if you find no problems after ot starts, shut it down correctly and restart, it should start the second time normally if there are no problems.
Post here again if it keeps up.
