Do you have anything non-vital(external LAN, sound, any PCI device) connected to the motherboard?
Also, the answer now seems pretty obvious, the last thing to rule out is the motherboard, and that would complete you a whole new PC! Sorry for that waste of money.

well you said you got a new CPU, a new GPU, a new PSU and used another memory, that makes for a CPU if you add the motherboard!
What do yoyu mean by that would complete you a whole new PC?

A couple more things to think of.
It has been asked, but not answered. Are you getting POST? You should see a lot of white lettering on the screen prior to attempted boot.
The white lettering would be about the bios version, drives installed, cd roms installed, etc.
If everything else is good, and you swapped to another drive that is not bootable, you would get something to the effect of "No boot device found".
In your 1st post you said
. That means you have on board video.
About 2 days ago, this happened and when I turned my computer off, I unplugged the power to the video cable and turned the computer on and it worked. A message came up telling me that I should check the cable connection to my video card, but windows still opened up. I beleive that must mean I have a built in videocard on my motherboard. Nevertheless, the issue occured after I was able to bypass the Nvidia video card.
But with just the power disconnected, the drivers for the card are still loading and conflicting with the onboard.
Have you tried safe mode by tapping F8 at startup. It may or may not work. If you do get all the way to safe mode, then you most likely have some components that are not playing nice together and then I would say the mobo is ok.

123Runner, I am NOT getting POST. Sorry, I thought I answered that. Whenever the computer turns on, it is completely blank on the screen. I have plugged in the monitor to my laptop and it works fine, so I don't think the monitor is the issue. Although, my video card is DVI and my monitor is VGA so i'm using an adapter. I have tried a second adapter as well and that didn't help. I have tried to swap to another drive and did not get the message you are referring to.
I don't know how it's possible that I have an on board video card because there is no where to plug in my monitor without my video card.
I will try safe mode now.

PD: This model does not have integrated Video so you would need an external video card to run it
