Can anyone help me solve my problem?

Specs: Windows 10, Intel core i7700k 4.2GHz16gb DDR4 RAM
So a few weeks ago I got a blue screen error while playing terraria. My pc restarted and I loaded the game back up. Right before the game finished loading I got another blue screen. This time it restarted but did not boot up, all I saw was a black screen. After doing research I figured that it could be the power supply. So I bought a new one and hooked it up. Note that I did not change the cables, only the power supply. I flipped the switch on the power supply and I heard two pops. Apparently the cables that I did not switch out had different voltages then the ones that came with the new power supply and that caused the damage. I switched to the new cables and the pc would boot into the bios. This is not the problem I need help with, it is just context for the following issue. After what I stated earlier happened I bough a new hard drive and put it in the pc. The hard drive was detected in the bios so I got a USB to instal windows 10. Now here is the problem I need help with. While installing windows 10 my pc will restart after a minute or two after being turned on. When it restarts it boots back to the windows installation screen where you click "install". I decided to try using a USB with windows installed on it so I could just boot right into windows and while booting up it keeps restarting and eventually shows an error telling me that windows encountered a problem. I forgot to mention that after a while, whether installing windows or going through the infinite loop of booting windows and restarting, my pc will restart and will not display anything on the screen. It also does not detect my keyboard or mouse and the screen will say "no signal". So there you go, I really hope someone can help me. It was an expensive computer and I have only had it a few months. My personal guess is that there is something wrong with the motherboard but that is just a guess.

If you are talking about the desktop of the pc that has a problem, then I can't access the desk top since there is no OS on the hard drive and I explained that it won't install windows 10 or boot it up from a USB.

Restarting can be a sign of overheating or an inadequate power supply. Post your hardware specs, including the make/model/wattage of the new PSU. If you have an i7 & DDR4 RAM, I would hope you invested in a good one. I don't understand what you're saying about the cables though. Cables are usually hardwired to the PSU, unless yours is modular? When the PSU is swapped, the cables are swapped along with it.

Specs
CPU: Intel core i7 7700k 4.2GHz
Motherboard: Asus Prime z270-A
Graphics Card: nvidia GeForce gtx 1080 ti
RAM: 2x 8gb sticks Ballistix sport
The new power supply: EVGA 750 bq
CPU cooler: cooler master hyper 212 evo. I added an extra 120 mm fan on it.
I have a total of 6 120 mm fans.
In case it matters, the case is the rosewill nautilus.

Both the new and old power supply's are modular, I forgot to specify that.

I do not have a DVD drive in the pc, nor do I have the windows ten DVD. That shouldn't make a difference though or could it? I'm not an expert so I'm eagerly waiting any help you can offer!

Booting to USB install should be fine as long as you set BIOS so that USB is bootable and first in boot order for the install.
The Popping sound you heard absolutely could have been damage to MB, Power Supply, CPU,, GPU, hard drive, etc.
There are a few tests that may help determine the problem.
Can you boot into BIOS? If yes, check the temps in BIOS and record them initially and after leaving it idle about 10 minutes. this will tell us some things about motherboard, RAM, CPU, and if temps were originally an issue. Record also the primary voltages (12V, 5V, & 3.3V) to see if they are within the required +/- 5% of their nominal values.
If it booted into BIOS then try booting into a USB stick with a Live Linux on it (Puppy Linux,or others) which do not require it to be installed to a hard drive. If it boots, see if you can access the hard drive and try doing a few simple things (browsing, documents, etc.). This will further test the hardware outside of the hard drive and Windows.
Post this information as to what works, what you are able to do, the numbers you recorded, etc. so we can make further suggestions to maybe narrow down the possibilities further.

If it was trying to access the hard drive it was probably trying to install where you really wanted it to run just from the USB drive and RAM. Try again or one of the others suggested by riider.

Previous symptoms and Linux crash text implies hardware failure. Try a bootable memory tester. If the memory passes, it's probably the motherboard or CPU. If the memory fails, you've got bad RAM.

Memtest86 is a good memory tester you can boot to.
https://www.memtest86.com/download.htm

Please note that a bootable memory test does bypass the hard drive but cannot bypass a CPU or motherboard problem. An all clear will mean memory good and a clear error pointing to a specific memory segment will clearly mean a memory problem but a failure of the test completely will not be conclusive. Having said that, repeat the test with first one stick of memory and then a different stick of memory in a different slot. If one is good but not the other, replace the pair. If neither is good you cannot be sure but trying a different memory module, either new or preferable known working stick will be more decisive.

Just looking in your manual, I see it has Secure Boot, if that is enabled, it will stop Linux & others running.

Disabling Secure Boot
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/wi...
"You may need to disable Secure Boot to run some PC graphics cards, hardware, or operating systems such as Linux or previous version of Windows.
Secure Boot helps to make sure that your PC boots using only firmware that is trusted by the manufacturer. You can disable Secure Boot through the PC’s firmware (BIOS) menus, but the way you disable it varies by PC manufacturer. If you are having trouble disabling Secure Boot after following the steps below, contact your manufacturer for help."

Running a Live Linux was intended to confirm if there is a hardware problem. If Linux or even Memtest86 runs properly then at least some of the hardware is working properly. If the motherboard, memory, and CPU are working then testing the hard drive (Seatools from Seagate) is the next step. If the hardware is all good then the problem is software related. JohnW has outlined steps to start testing that as well.

Hey guys? He tried Live Linux, remember? Response 14? It crashed on boot? Now it's admirable that you're keeping an open mind and are willing to blame Linux, but if you have to diagnose your toolkit, it might be time to get a better toolkit.

Personally, I'm more willing to blame the hardware. Windows won't boot. Linux won't boot. Attempting to gives us an MCE. The OP indicates there may be physical damage to the hardware. The popping sound was probably some chip on the MB, and said chip was probably the CPU, but testing memory is easy enough.

Both memory sticks passed the tests with no problems what so ever.

I don't know why I didn't mention this earlier, but I believe one of the two pops I heard was my SSD which had the OS on it. It smelled burnt after I heard the pops, but I could not smell the burnt smell on any other pieces of hardware. I am not sure if the second pop was another piece of hardware or if the SSD popped twice.

I think I will try UEFI on its own, then I will try disabling secure boot, then I'll look into farbar. Thanks for all of your help so far guys!

We had someone look at the the SSD and the two HDDs that were in the pc when the pops happened. He said that all three were completely fried and that only the data on the hard drives could be recovered. Throughout all of the recommended tests I have done the SSD nor the HDDS have been in the pc, only a brand new herd drive I purchased. In case you are wondering, the pc does not detect the SSD or the HDDs when they are connected. So we can rule out the SSD as the sole faulty component.

So if you're still crashing with all of your drives disconnected, you're still looking at the MB and/or CPU. As things stand, I doubt there's much more testing to be done without a spare MB and/or CPU. The good news is if your MB is compatible with any LGA 1151 chip, Newegg tells me you can pick up a tester CPU for around $50. The flip side is that money's basically spent for diagnostics. If the chip works, you know the CPU is bad and now you have to buy something that could actually run Terraria. If it doesn't, and I'm suspecting it won't, you've got two wildly different CPUs, and no board to socket them into. Even then, there's no guarantee the CPU isn't damaged as well.

Without pulling out your wallet, you could closely examine the MB to look for signs of damage, but such damage tends to be hard to spot unless a capacitor leaks or a resistor blows. This is where you hope that second pop wasn't also from your SSD.

If you're looking for a shot in the dark, I'd assume the MB, and point to the non-functioning SATA controller as the symptom.

I also would assume that the motherboard would get the voltage first so the motherboard would be the first to be damaged. A strong light might help find a burnt component but as mentioned, many points of damage will be hidden. This does not rule out the CPU also being damaged but you have to start somewhere.
The price of a new motherboard will not be more than paying someone to try a few things to see if they can figure it out for you so in my book it would be worth investing in it and trying it.
If you are itching for the newest or latest system of feel that an extra two cores might help then it is now that you should decide if it is a good time for a major upgrade to the latest generation Coffee Lake i7 & MB.

So I just went to my pc to try booting with UEFI only and disable the secure boot but when I turned on my pc it would not display anything on the screen. The screen just says no input. The fans spin and all the LEDs in the case are on. Even the mouse LEDs are on. The keyboard won’t light up though which means that the pc isn’t taking input from it. Does this help narrow down the problem? It has happened every once in a while since the pop sounds but it usually stops after a while and the pc boots I believe into safe mode or something like that.

I looked at the motherboard and I could not notice any obvious damage, but I could take a closer look if you think it could help.

I don’t want to spend a lot on a new mother board or processor. I built this pc for smooth 4k gaming and before the problems, it could do battlefront 2015 at 4k 60fps and ghost recon wildlands and 1440p 60fps. Basically what I’m saying is that I don’t want the BEST parts just the required parts for 4k gaming.

Thanks for all the help so far guys, I have learned a lot and I’m sure we are making great progress.

So I bought a new motherboard, the MSI b250m pro-vd. I hooked everything up and when I turned on the pc it did the same thing that it did with the other motherboard. All the LEDs and fans came on but it would not show anything on the screen. When I had the cpu out of the mobo it looked completely undamaged and did not smell like it was burnt. Is it possible that it is the power supply? At this point I have no clue and am getting worried that I won’t be able to fix the problem.

*Looks up manual*
Any of those "EZ Debug LEDs" staying lit? Have you tried getting video through the on board video, and removing whatever video card you have? Tried resetting the BIOS? Verified your memory's compatible?

I do not see any of the ez debug LEDs lit.I removed the video card and tried getting video through the mobo but am getting none. I do not know how to reset the bios. My memory SHOULD be compatible. It is two sticks of 8gb memory at 2400.

Is it possible that this could be the power supply? I know the processor has been suggested as a potential problem, but as I said when I changed mother boards, the processor had no signs of damage unless it is impossible to tell by looking at it.

I am looking forward to a response.

I mean, could it be the PSU? Sure, but that's for you and your multimeter to figure out. I recommend using back probing to get your numbers. PSU pinouts are readily available online: https://www.google.com/search?q=atx...
