It could be a defective or dirty video card. But in the some cases, where built-in graphics is used (no video card, built-in to motherboard) it is the memory (RAM) that is causing the problem.

Try removing your video card (if you have any) or memory from the board.

Video card removal instructions: http://bit.ly/1m0jwb3
Memory removal instructions: http://bit.ly/1s5svYr

Clean the pins (gold contacts) with a rubber pencil eraser. Install the memory or the video card back to the board & power-on. If this doesn't work, replace the defective unit.

You may also try cleaning the internals of the computer using a non-static brush & a can of compressed air.

Yes, there is. You can find information about it here:
If you want real help, know your motherboard's brand & model so we could check what type of RAM it supports. If you can't find out, download and install speccy or aida64. It could give detailed report about the specs of your pc.
Hope this helps.

Press "F8" repeatedly before the Windows icon shows up on your screen.
This will bring you to the "Windows Advance Options Menu."

Scroll down and select the boot option you want.

Could be a possible hardware problem. When you say new motherboard, was there an issue with your old one? Were you given the exact same model?

Also, maybe an issue with your power supply.

The scrolling feature on a laptop touchpad can take some getting used to, which causes some users to disable the feature.
Whether scrolling was intentionally turned off or never enabled on the laptop, it can easily be turned on from the "Mouse Properties" menu.

Click "Start" (or the Windows logo button in Vista and Windows 7) and select "Control Panel." Select "Classic View" in Vista if not already displayed. Double click "Mouse."
You may also access "Mouse Properties" in Vista and Windows 7 by clicking the Windows logo and typing "Mouse" in the search box.
Press "Enter," then click "Mouse" when the search is finished.
Select the "Hardware" tab.
Select the touchpad and click "Properties."
Click "Change Settings" if the settings aren't displayed.
Click the "Device Settings" tab in Windows 7 and select the touchpad.
Click "Settings."
Click "Virtual Scrolling" in the touchpad properties window.
Click the boxes next to each "Enable Scrolling" box and click "OK." Scrolling is now turned on for your touchpad.

CD Drive Tray problems
There are two ways to open the CD drive door if the button just below the drive tray does not work.
Go to My Computer and right click on the drive and click on Eject.
If this does not work then you can manually open the CD drive tray by -
Straighten a paper clip and gently insert it into a tiny hole below the drive tray next to the Eject button. Push the paper clip gently until the drive tray pops out, then pull the tray until it is fully out, then you can remove the CD disc.
If you still having problem opening with the Eject button, then the CD drive is faulty and needs replacing.
