That is a very low end board, not well suited to that CPU. FX 8350 is a very power hungry CPU, and that board's power delivery is not well suited for it. That board does have it's own integrated graphics, though. You can pull out the GTX 960, and then hook your monitor up to the motherboard.
Just for my own curiousity, where was the correct mobo model listed?
I was of the impression that the one in OP was not correct, and the one he listed further down appeared to be an incorrect model number.

Keyboard and mouse not lighting up.this is a clue I think that means windows is not booting up.Does it seem like windows is booting,but just not displaying?like is their a hard drive activity light blinking indicating windows is booting?

On a side note I have the same board,and if I don't turn my monitor off and back on again before booting from a completely off position position,I get no display.
i have just checked there was not light indications on the hard drives but im 98% positive there never was. i have booted up with 1 out and the other in then vice versa. then both out to see if i can get the bios still nothing

So today I've took the cpu out and reinstalled it, still the same. I tried to do a CMOS trip but had no clue how to do it as the manual didnt say anything about it. I completely removed the GPU and used the motherboards onboard graphics (someone said that model had it) still nothing. Only thing I can think off now is that the PSU may have short circuit due to it being forced shut off by the wall switch whilst it was still running everything, Is this possible?

You stated, "sister switched it off by the wall socket." Killing the power to a running computer is bad news can do all sorts of invisible damage. That will send a power surge that will seek out lowest resistance it could fry the USB device itself or the port of the pc.
