Checking the PDF file for the manual the only LED lights I see are in the top right corner and they are CPU load lights. Which show the amount of CPU usage that is going on. What is your systems current setup.

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H55M-UD2H
CPU: i5 but which

i forgot to say the original reason it stopped working was the cpu fan cord got caught on fan blade and the computer shut off. and it started doing what i said turns on and off over and over all the led lights are comming on the motherboard that is why i replaced the cpu but it is still doing this

Hmm yea I think your motherboard was protecting itself because it wasn't being kept at a safe temperature.
Honestly I'm not exactly sure what to advise you to do when you turn it on do you get fan activity from the stock fan?

hmm at the top right corner right? See when I read the manual it said the lights would turn on based on how much load was on the CPU. However if all the lights are turned on I wonder if it could be CPU related. Are you able to get into the bios if so take a look at the voltages and the cpu temp.

not a problem if you end up getting a motherboard back would be nice to know what happens in case there is anything we can help you with. I feel like this issue is like shooting in the dark kind of bothers me a little wish I knew more.

Sounds like it could be a short -- when you installed the MOBO did you use the proper standoffs in the proper place so that the underside of the MOBO does not touch the case tray ? Also take a look under the MOBO and make sure there is not a loose screw or something caught between the MOBO and the case that is causing a short.
