  1. If overclocking, undo and reset to stock speeds.
    Start by reseating the memory, hard drive connections and video card, if you have one. Also might try going to the bios/uefi screen and watch the cpu temp for awhile and make sure it stabilizes at a normal temp...should be around 80 F or so at idle.
    Lastly, if need be. Reset the cpu heatsink making sure that the thermal paste is covering the heat spreader.
    Was windows ever loading correctly or have you had this since first install?
  2. Did you install the Spacers on the motherboard so it isnt making contact with the case when you boot? Is your CPU Fan Running when you boot? If not check the connections. Is your CPU Fan seated correctly with thermal paste applied and cured if stated by the manufacturer of your thermal paste?
  3. i havent overclocked it, and the temp is idleing at that. ever since i installed my new procceser and board i havent even been able to get to windows, and bios is not helping. idk what todo.

    Yes i did, the fan is working everything is working. just wont let me boot.
  5. if you have multiple RAM sticks try removing one and booting up and see what happens. and just go down the line of you RAM stick if that doesnt work. go into your BIOS settings and see what you voltage and Temps are saying

    its reading i have 8gigs, and everything is fine. IT wont let me boot past the windows screen, might have to fresh install everything cuz i swaped motherboards right?

    When all else fails reinstall the OS. if that doesn't work let us know.
  8. Try changing your HDD setting. (In the BIOS)

    If you installed your OS using IDE and the new board defaults to AHCI (or vice versa)...it will crash.

    Hey I am having this exact problem, but when I changed the HDD settings to IDE, it resulted in a crash again, and to AHCI with the same result. I have no idea what the problem is.
