Question about EliteGroup K7S5A Pro Motherboard
You must have re-installed Windows when you replaced the hard drive. After installing Windows, you need to re-install the drivers too. You may have a driver disc that came with your computer. If you don't have it, you can search for the drivers on Google, if you know the make and model of your computer. After downloading the drivers, install them. You didn't realize but you probably also need to install the video/graphics driver.
However, here's an easy way out:
Use this driver scanning tool, which scans your computer for the needed drivers. It has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.
You can download this free tool from here, or directly from this link.
After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.
Hope that helps,

It sound like your hard drive has lost something or is ready to die. I strongly recommend that you immediately make a back up of all you important files, then even better an image of your hard drive. To do an image you can use something like Drive Image or Ghost; in this way in case you need to replace your hard drive it will not take 2 days to reinstall Windows and all the programs.
To better understand if your Hard drive isd daying, you can look at LED in the front of your PC to see if stays only for a long time. I also suggest you to use a nice and free utility Drive Fitness. You can download it from here http://www.softsea.com/review/IBM-Hitachi-Drive-Fitness-Test.html when you install it it will create a Floppy disk.
After creating your Floppy you start your PC from Floppy and it will test all the parameters of your Hard Disk.
If Drive Fitness doesn't find any issue means that there is a problem with Windows (Some file corrupted or lost)
