I don't know why you're posting in the gaming forum because you certainly don't have a gaming machine.

My guess is the problem has to do with the power supply. Dynex is garbage. Stay away from the BestBuy house brands (Dynex & RocketFish), they suck. If you paid $50 for that thing, you paid $30 too much. There's nothing wrong with getting a cheaply priced power supply though, you just have to know how to pick a good one. It should be a reputable brand, have active PFC, 80% plus certified, single +12v of at least 30A, & a decent warranty.

Here's a few for your consideration:

The reason i posted my question in the gaming side of this site is because if you look at the Board Model u should of known that's a gaming board that has gaming options in the settings as well i did not know if it could of been a "Bios" setting wrong

I never said i had a gaming machine "I HAVE A LIFE "

Thank you

To stress on what miqlick said and he is right cheap psu, not enough power to hardware(cpu fans not spinning) no video could be the cause of the psu as well and the video card.
The reason i posted my question in the gaming side of this site is because if you look at the Board Model u should of known that's a gaming board
is it? if it is u sure did not take advantage of it.
u changed the cpu by doing this ur risking more damage to the pc and motherboard if u did not insert the cpu correctly.
take a look at the links in response #1 those are worthy psu's

"The reason i posted my question in the gaming side of this site is because if you look at the Board Model u should of known that's a gaming board"

I guess it was considered a "gaming board" 5-6 yrs ago? Regardless, you should have asked in the hardware forum, not the gaming forum. Still, my guess is the power supply needs replacing. You said you changed the PSU, from what to what? Is the Dynex the new/replacement?
