I have a AMD fx 8120 I took the fan off took the chip out of the CPU put on thermal paste like I should have and turned it on no image I never touched anything else. Also my PC is not memorizing my keyboard and mouse.

yep, also you can try removing and placing back the motherboard battery, which will reset bios settings.
