    looking at the bios updates right now, they sure have a ton of fixes, maybe you just need to update it

    Hi

    *Power down the sytem

    1 Remove vga card and ram

    2 Unplug 24pin & *8pin [*if required by mobo] Power from Motherboard & Clear CMOS

    3 Install minimal hardware: PSU; CPU & Heatsink; one stick of RAM and vga card [*boot to bios; If NO]

    4 Use Spare compatible RAM and or borrow from a friend if possible [*boot to bios; If NO]

    5 Use Spare vga card and or borrow from a friend if possible [*boot to bios; If NO]

    Reseat CPU *do not over tighten heatsink [check for bent pins and or other damage] and repeat process 1 through to 5

    [*boot to bios; If NO] check with another monitor and vga; HDMI, DVI and or other cables

    *Double check all PSU cables are secure [fans not spinning on mobo; no sign of life * check with another PSU] make sure your PSU is registered within the thirty day limit; incase it fails or develops a fault

    Assemble system out side of case place mobo on anti static bag and box lid [to ensure the hardware is not shorting out]

    Note: If able to see bios on screen; go here to update motherboard bios, once updated try with the original hardware config in the opening post

    nb: try not to double post, use edit button if you need to add more information, thanks

    Edit: attach system speaker so beep codes can be heard for mem and vga *if mobo gives errors
