Upgraded Motherboard, Computer Won't Boot


Thought that with an OEM copy of windows, I could at least get into Windows long enough to install the chipset drivers. However, I cannot even get it to get to the Setup screen.

When I turn on the computer, everything lights up, but the monitors (which are not in sleep mode) stay black. I can hear stuff spinning, but nothing happens. One drive has VISTA installed - one has Windows 7. There are 3 drives installed total.

Motherboard MSI - Series 9 chipset
Processor - Phenom 2 3.2 6 core
16 gigs RAM
Vista Home (Do not want this to boot)
Windows 7 Home Premium

Not sure what all else specs you need, but really want to fix this as a present for my fiance. Please help asap!

More about upgraded motherboard computer boot
  1. seem you need clear install OS
  2. You could try booting into SAFE mode, then removing all the motherboard drivers, and installing the new ones... But a clean install would be safer..
  3. I can't even get it to the BIOS - its just a black screen D:
  4. check installation again
    - power connector
    from psu to motherboard
    - and sure your cpu secure properly
    - ram properly in slot ( try use 1 stick for checking )
    - try turn on pc see light debug
    Try turn on pc not use hdd if you can you get bios ?
