I recently upgraded my computer system which I built +-4 years ago, the parts I upgraded are the CPU, motherboard, ram, CPU cooler, case, case fans meaning that I kept the graphics card, power supply and the hard drive (part list is below).

When attempting to boot the PC appears to operate normally with all case fans running and displaying their LED's, further my cpu cooler fan runs, the gpu's fans and LED light on it also run. However nothing appears on the Display. I know that the HDMI cable and display are both working properly and have tested them with other hardware.

Extra information:
PSU is enough wattage for the setup
CPU and Motherboard are compatible
Haven't tried other DDR4 Ram yet
No beep error on start
I spoke to someone and they suggested that it may be because I took the hard drive straight from my old PC to my new one and that Windows 10 and all the drivers may be configured for that PC then when I try to run that same hard drive it gives the error. I attempted to run launch BIOS when it starts however my Keyboard and mouse aren't operating either.



What I have tried so far:

Resetting the CMOS manually from the board
Plugging HDMI cable into the Motherboard instead of GPU
Ensuring all cables are plugged in properly
Changing RAM DIMM slot, didn't work and it is running in the recommended slot suggested by mobo manual
Switching PCIE slot for GPU


Part list

Motherboard: TUF Gaming plus ii Z370
CPU: Intel I5 8600k
Graphics Card: msi 1050 Ti
RAM: Kingston 16gb DDR4
PSU: Corsair CS550M
CPU Cooler: Cryorig H7
Case Fans: Corsair ML120 Pro (x3)
Hard Drive: WD 1tb

If you are not getting a display ie no splash screen or POST data, drivers have nothing to do with the problem. Drivers are not loaded until windows loads.
I would start by reading the guide at the top of the hardware forum for problem builds. If you follow ALL of the steps, you will find the cause of your no POST condition.

Some common errors for new builders;
1 4/8/12pin aux pw connector not plugged in
2 Monitor is connected to the onboard port on the motherboard rather than the video card port
3 CPU, Ram, etc not seated
4 Parts incompatible [does not seem to be the problem here]

BTW while having a previous windows install is not the problem here, once you do get the system to POST, windows will most likely not boot. If it does boot, it will not be activated due to the fact you changed hardware. If this install came from a big box system ie dell, hp, whatever, you will need to purchase a new copy of windows. OEM type lic live and die with the original hardware; you change the motherboard and you need a new lic. If this was a retail ver of windows, you can either clean install or just reactivate. Note you may have to call MS if the full retail ver will not auto activate.
