Hardware issues!!!!

I just resently upgraded my motherboard and processor for my computer and I decided to use my old board and processor to buid another computer. My problem is that when I turn the computer on it post with one beep but freezes up after the memory test on the BIOS screen. Does anyone have an idea what causes this problem?

Shuttle AK35GT/R socket A
Athlon XP 2200+
512MB DDR 2700 Ram
OEM version NIVIDIA GeForce 2 64MB Video
Power supply 420
