Thanks for the updates.

Looks like the failed installs have changed settings.   Ignore previous instructions and see if you can get a responsive system.

If you have a recovery CD, use it and select system restore to go back to before the failed installs.

If no disc, start in safe mode with Command Prompt, type rstrui.exe

FYI. you cannot undo a system restore when using command prompt, but you can choose another one if available. 


If the system is stable enough, back up your Data.

i broke the pins on my cpu while trying to troubleshoot why the pc wouldn't start up after installing the new mobo


i won't be able to afford a new cpu and a new motherboard for quite some time, just wanted to get something working to last until i went to basic training

i'm going to return the motherboard i suspected was DOA anyway and just get money back until i can buy a new board to match a new cpu, i'll probably switch to intel if i don't just buy a new rig from ibuypower or something

you can close the thread sorry for wasting your time and thanks for trying to help
