My System Specs

Default New PC

Ok, just finished a build and when I go to boot up nothing happens when the computer starts. Just a blank monitor.

Good stuff there. Working to figure things out now. Getting a 7F error code. I get video on screen but I get a CMOS checksum error

List your parts so we know what we're dealing with. Clear the CMOS. A 7F error is usually waiting for input (F1 to continue, that type of thing).

If your running Windows 7 it doesn't like computer overhauls. Generally when you change a couple of important components it won't boot any more. ^ that is what you have to do :( What I did when I encountered this is bought a SSD and installed windows on it.
