Bought a new mobo w/cpu and ram and can't get it to work.
Swapped out my mobo with new cpu and ram.
Startup, It wouldn't post. Fans ran, led light on, optical drive working but no post or video.
Moved my ram around, No beeps.. With all sticks removed I was getting 1 long beep followed by 2 short. Then I had 1 stick in the B1 slot, Finally got it to post
Got it to the bios but could not get the OS to boot up.
Tried moving my hard drive sata ports, nothing.
kept getting a samsung safe erase hard drive window wanting to erase my hard drive. Finally clicked ok, and tried to erase my ssd drive, got an error window saying my hard drive was frozen and to unplug replug it's sata cable, did it with no success.
Tried to reload an earlier version of windows with no success.
Also removed my video card and used the onboard video
After 5 hours of frustration I gave up, removed the new Mobo/Ram/Cpu. Put in my old stuff and all is as it was.
Thanks for your help,
