Safe Mode loads the OS with minimal devices and drivers. If the OS runs in safe mode but not in normal mode that points to a hardware problem or driver problem.

First, apply the thermal paste as suggested. That needs to be done.

Second, double check all your installations on the new motherboard. Remove and re-seat all the components and be sure they click solidly into place. Double check all your wiring connections, make sure nothing is loose.

Then, check the "revision number" on both motherboards. Are they also the same?

Download CPUz And show us screenshots of the Motherboard tab, the CPU tab the memory and spd tabs. Also, when you start up the computer do you hear any beeps? Make sure the 24 pin and the 8 pin connector are completely seated in the correct orientation. Did you seat the ram in the same slots as you other board and are the clips on the sides of the ram completely in the up position?

The revision number tells what version of the motherboard you have. Sometimes the manufacturers produce the same model, but with some changes. So while you may have an exact replacement of the model, if it is a more recent revision you might need to update the chipset driver or the driver for some other onboard device.

It would not be a bad idea either to make note of your current BIOS settings, then reset the BIOS Defaults, and set everything back again afterward.

Another thing that can not be ruled out is that some other component of the PC was damaged in the electrical event. The power supply is most vulnerable in these cases.

thank you all for your help.
you were very helpfull .
thing is that i was very desperate and i decided to see if the problem is in windows installation and decided to reinstall windows .
i boot installation from cd and i start to reinstall but than the freezing issue pop up and now i dont have windows at all .
i tried couple of time to run the installation but everytime after couple of minutes (not much) it freezing.

i think that there is no other option than to put my pc in some lab for them to rip me off .
i think that although i think i put everything ok , maybe i damaged some way to cpu or the motherboard.

before i do that any new ideas now that you know that i dont have a windows (even in a safe mode) .

cheers.

Do you have any friends that you can borrow a PSU from to test? Are you sure you installed the CPU and the CPU cooler properly and is the fan on the cooler turning? Download and run memtest86 to check your ram. Burn it to a CD and boot from the CD. Run 7 passes or until an error appears. Download the diagnostic test from your hard drive manufacturer. Again, check the 24 pin and the 8 pin plug on your motherboard to make sure they are seated completely. Reset bios to optimized defaults.
