    Hey, so I just build a pc but I bought used part (mobo+cpu) and I assembled it like normal then it posting ofcourse but it ask me to ctrl+alt+delete to restart cause obviously it can't read my windows on the hdd so I did restart and trying to install my windows with my pendrive and suddenly it didn't post.So how can I fix this. I tried all sort of troubleshooting but none work.Oh and my display port cable not doing well.it turns my monitor blue but I dont think thats the problem isnt it?

    First of all, no one [other than you] has any idea what parts you used for this build. Post ALL of the exact system specs; ie exact motherboard, exact processor, exact pw supply, etc, etc. Do not post "500W pw supply" Post the exact brand and model# Do that for ALL of your parts.

    Next have you read the guide at the top of the forum for problem builds? If not, do so. If you follow ALL of the steps, you will find the cause of your no POST condition.

    You can't take a hard drive with Windows on it from one computer and put it into another and expect it to boot!

    When you build, you need to install a blank hard drive and install Windows for the hardware on that computer.

    While this is correct, the system is not completing POST which has nothing to do with whatever operating system is on any given drive.
