try reset the hhds and the ssd,maybe your new mobo needs a bios update for you new cpu to work with it,try booting of of 1 ram stick,reset cmos,if you have psu extensions remove them and boot with the cables that came with the psu to see if the extensions are the problem.maybe the gpu is faulty,maybe the monitor.Also can you list your specs?
Good luck :)

i just saw that the power supply seems to have an extra cable for the motherboard on my computer , "h.d.d LED" , "SW power" etc the smallest cables there is for the motherboard.
one of them is missing from the old PS, witch means i probably have to order new power supply for the new motherboard, i think that is making it not work, because the old power supply only has 3 inputs, my own power supply uses 4 cables for the motherboard :eek:
or is it possible to ignore those to make the motherboard "forget" about that cable? that would be like magic..
