So two weeks ago my PC wouldn't boot into BIOS and the motherboard's erro LEDs were on so I RMAed it. Yesterday I got my motherboard back and I reassembled my PC hooked everything up only to find that I was getting no video signal. It is also worth noting that I RMAed my GTX 460 to EVGA before my motherboard so I have a brand new video card that I am using in my PC. My only guess is that my monitor is broken, the VGA input on it stopped working half way through owning it (won't detect a signal over VGA) and now I am guessing the DVI input no longer works.

My system specs are:
- GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0
- EVGA GTX 460 SE 1GB
- A-DATA Gaming Series DDR3 1600 6GB
- Antec EA-750 PSU
- LITEON DVD burner
- Western Digital Caviar Black WD500 500GB x2

I am going to try another monitor and report back here but I would like to know anything else that I can try.

EDIT:
I realized the RAM was in the wrong slots. I can get into BIOS and get windows to boot, but it freezes before getting to the login screen, I'm just chalking this up to the fact that I need to reinstall windows after installing "new" hardware.
I'm going to backup and reinstall and report back here later.

EDIT2:

Can't get it to boot from a USB. Sometimes it freezes in BIOS, I managed to get it to boot OS X but it also froze. Whenever I boot into windows its freezes before the login screen appears or at the login screen. The temps on my processor are fine (in the 30s thanks to Coolermaster V8) I have no idea what is wrong.
