So i had this old computer which had a lot of heating problems and I messed around with it by myself because i couldnt get any help and one day the monitor was not showing at all

What I thought had gone wrong was that I applied too much thermal paste on my new cpu and I was messing around with the paste on so the motherboard was painted with the paste on some places

so i bought a new case a new motherboard and a new cpu i bought the same motherboard (link below) but downgraded to 6 core amd from 8 core because i didnt have enough money and i thought 6 was enough to play league and so i kept the

  • Power Supply
  • Graphics card
  • Hard Drive and
  • Ram

and after that i connected them all together but the same problem persists: fan running from both cpu and graphics card while the monitor is black

after that i saw somewhere that ram might be causing this problem so i bought another ram (link below)

but i still have the same problem I tried the bios reset not sure what it does just trying everything i can

If this thread cannot get me answers im going to get a professional help though im not sure where i can

The first or next thing to try is using the onboard graphics of your motherboard. Have you tried that already? This is evident from the very first symptom of a no video or blackscreen to monitor before you have replaced or decided to fiddle with your system as the problem might simply point to your video card.

Actually, you might need actual guidance/suggestion by an experience technician as you might also be able to salvage or save your previous motherboard and CPU. It might not cost that much as compared to your previously purchased components. :thumbup2:

Maybe you were using the graphics card first hand before switching to onboard. At this case, I would try removing the CMOS battery for a couple of minutes then press the power button for atleast 10 seconds (with power cord unplugged). Use the onboard again then see if any changes. I would reseat the RAM (always make sure to touch the side casing before working inside) and don't connect any hard drives, just a keyboard would do. I'm assuming that the CMOS battery is not weak and the motherboard is in good condition.

Do you happen to have tried changing the video cable or have check the ports on either end are properly seated? There is usually a slight beep on some desktops before a splash screen image on monitor or during POST. This would indicate a good CPU or it is properly seated also.
