    jgiels my problem is cant get to the bios to do anything.
    On startup there is nothing on the screen and the hard drive spins and so does the dvd drive but blank screen.
    I have another cpu to try today and TVeblen said try also in his pc to find out if my motherboard is shot.

    Well i think i have sorted things out but now a new problem.
    I got a 2nd hand motherboard from eb and installed most of my old pc parts onto that.
    The sata drive wouldn't start windows so i done a reinstall and as on the old pc i thought the hard drive was faulty i done chkdsk 3 and no errors or fixes and on the backup id did the same and that was ok.
    My problem now is that i tried a system image from the backup drive to new install drive but when it restarted i couldn't find windows. I reinstalled again and tried again but the same thing.
    When i had problems on old pc i did a image copy using windows and wiped the windows drive,reinstalled windows and restored image ok but not on this motherboard so i think the image is ok as it worked and i never touched that hard drive.
    The old motherboard must of had a problem with the usb drives as all the old parts work on this motherboard ok.
