Computer Won't Post :(

I'll get into details, but first specs:

Gigabyte 970A-UD3P MB

AMD FX-8320 CPU

EVGA GTX960 SC GPU

G.Skillz Ripjaw DDR3-1600 16gb (4x4) Ram

EVGA G2 850W PSU

Kingston 240gb SSD

 

As the title suggests, the computer won't post. It's connected to an Acer monitor via DVI connection. The computer does turn on, the LED's light up. I've tried everything, including reseating the CPU, RAM, and GPU. I managed to get it to post after disconnecting and reconnecting all PSU cables, and learned that the Bios was corrupted. It recovered, and booted into windows. Promptly after booting, I got a prompt to restart my computer to install graphics driver updates. After doing so, the computer would no longer post. I even tried resetting the CMOS. Any ideas as to what may have gone wrong and what I can do to fix?

You could try unpluging everything , leave the system with mobo only + cpu + one ram stick only, mess with your ram some to see if that changes Anything, try one ram stick in eatch slot, if it dousen't work out next ram stick same deal.

And try with out video card, should still post but beep.
