Solved

My PC isn't starting up. I got a new motherboard and processor and now my PC will not even go into BIOS, nor do I have any dis

SPECS: GTX 770, i5 4670k, ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO, 8gb ram, corsair 650w PSU.
OLD SPECS: GTX 770, AMD FX 8320, Asrock 990fx extreme 3, 8gb RAM, corsair 650w PSU.
My PC would start up when I had the asrock MOBO and fx cpu, but my mobo wouldn't support 125w CPUS, so for some strange reason, instead of buying a new mobo for like $100, I went to frys and bought an ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO, and an intel core i5 4670k.
Everything worked fine, I got into the BIOS and into my system, all my games were installed, I was happy. But the next day when I booted up my system, it woulnt start up. The MOBO display said "00 " which means "Not used" whats not used? What does this mean?
I took apart my system and put it all back together, and it works again. The next day I booted up my system and it did the exact same thing, I didn't really have the time to rebuild it, so I just let it be for a day (I turned it off of course) That night, I didn't turn it on, but I put it in sleep mode, instead of turning it off.
Same thing happened, it didn't boot up. I waited a day and it turned on. I decided it would be best to just leave it on, not turning it off or putting it in sleep mode. It was on for a whole week before I decided to turn it off, my new fan that I ordered had came in, so I wanted to install it.
So here I am without a working pc and I desperately need it to work, please help, its like no matter what steps I take to fix my pc there's another problem immediately afterwards.

    No, I believe this is the problem.
  5. Ok if you did not reinstall OS when switching CPU compainies it will have issue.

    Others have had that XMP memory bios setting and it showing 00

    So is it permanent issues or does re installing the OS fix it?

    There are different files that windows installs between AMD and Intel, but this should only prevent windows booting not preventing it to post.

    There are many posts on the net about code 00 and dissabling the XMP in the bios. You might also try resetting CMOS
