New motherboard processor and ram installed now no input through the screen.

Hello, I recently installed a new motherboard, processor, and ram cards. After putting everything together I could get the computer to start but no input was going showing up on my screen. It was getting the connection at least because when it was first plugged in it immediately lit up but then the screen so no signal and shut back off. This has left me stumped and I have no clue what could be wrong, I tried a VGA cable instead and that didn't work and a different screen and that didn't work. Also anything I plug into the USB such as Like a USB light or something like that does not power on, so I also do not know what's going on there. Please help.

  1. Make sure you got the power going to the CPU. It's a little 4 pin square connector with 2 yellow and 2 black wires on it.
  2. So, if Im understanding what ya wrote, you took an old Hard Drive with drivers for old hardware on it and tried to boot windows with the drivers for hardware that is no longer there and w/o drivers for the hardware that ya have now ?

    No it wont work....wipe HD and install windows again.

    Correct locations for your board are indicated in the manual....A2 and B2 is the most common default location on Asus Dual Channel boards (2nd and 4th from CPU)
