I just rebuilt my computer after installing a WC system in it. Now when I turn it on all it does is stay on the BIOS screen and wont go past it. I have 2 hdds SATA which I think I had them mixed up when plugging them back in so I switched them and still nothing. Any suggestions?

Hi
Are you able to actually get into the bios setup & make the bios auto-detect the drives?
If so, then do that & see if it is finding both hard drives correctly.

Does it complete the memory check before hanging or doesn't it get this far?

Not sure, any way to check? It does a few checks then reads 50 on my mobo and freezes.

Its an ABIT AN8 Fatality board.

Ok, according to your motherboard manual, post code 50 means initializing USB

First thing to check in that case, is make sure all USB devices are disconnected. Then check the internal USB connections (i.e. if you have front USB ports which connect to a motherboard header via a fly lead for example). Its possible that one of these may have been dislodged while you were installing the W/C.
If the USB header leads are comprised of several individual connectors (rather than a single block connector) then its crucial that these are connected correctly. If in any doubt, disconnect all of them completely.
