Partial Boot

So I've solved the stop start, now its thrown up another problem.

Started rebuilding a PC, took out the HDD, formatted in caddy, replaced, took out CPU, cleaned replaced, fitted new cooler. cleaned and replaced GPU.

Switched on, all lights fans startup, screen shows Post splash screen, BUT, thats as far as it goes, none of the key notifications work, loading OS disk does nothing.??????

Changed keyboard for working USB one.

M/B = Gigabyte EP35-DS4

From your explanation I'm not sure if your getting Bios screen. If you are enter Bios and make sure the hard drive is recognized and the CD player.

I can't get into the Bios, its just the Post Splash screen which shows Delete to enter Bios, but it doesn't work.
Also F9 for Express Recovery, and F12 for Boot Menu, neither works.

jump the cmos on your motherboard to clear it out and see if that helps.

I had something very similar myself after doing a clean up like yours.

Turns out one of the connections to the mobo had been disturbed by my clumsiness. (Can't recall exactly which it was ).

Worth checking every connection - easy to disturb them.

+1 On loose connection.

Turn off and unplug. We don't want to hear any shocking reports.

Checking RAM seating or anything get out the wrist strap with all the dry winter air. Static electricity is rampant in the winter.

Win7 only performs partial boot
I noticed this morning that my computer has been running for 37 days without a restart, so naturally I decided it should be restarted to clean out temp files. The initial restart acted strangely, taking almost 15 minutes. When it was finished, the computer had only partially rebooted, failing to...
