Not receiving video output from motherboard

I’ll start from the beginning. I blew my pc up earlier this year by putting a 125w cpu into a 95w supported motherboard slot. I know I messed up big time.

It wouldn’t turn back on, only the fans and led turn on for a split second. So I tried to use my older cpu and that same thing happened.

Not knowing what it was, I bought a new psu and thought that would work. It did not and it was doing the same thing as before.

I looked up how to test the psu to see if it was defective, it wasn’t and passed the paper clip test. Idk why but I tested my old psu and it passed as well!

So I bought a new motherboard and yes it turned on!!! But then I ran into another problem... It wasn’t getting any type of video output. Back to troubleshooting and researching..

I decided to return the motherboard and psu. And bought another motherboard. Alas the same thing, no video output.

Now I know you are thinking I’m just replacing things without actually troubleshooting. But I was breadboarding the heck out of everything. I have old RAM I was using too. I just wanted to get into bios!!

And I was checking compatibility as I went along as well. So it couldn’t have been that.

Just yesterday I got a another cpu to see if that was the problem. And still no video output, post beeps..

So now I have my motherboard outside the case(to see if shutoffs are the problem) with my GPU, stock of RAM, CPU(with heat sink and fan)speaker.

Also I wasn’t able to wipe harddrive, update or flash bios. My pc died and I’ve been trying to revive it. Please help if you can! I am at my limit and thinking about getting a new pc but I am inpatient as crap right now.

I have a Sentey Extreme 550w psu and the one I returned was a 600w. The gpu worked fine on it before I destroyed the motherboard with the 125w cpu.
