    Also i just installed a new dvd-ram drive so i thought maybe the power supply wasnt holding up its own for power, so i unplugged the new drive nothing, unplugged the old cd rom along with the dvd ram and still nothing

    Start by filling in your User Profile (top left) with PC-data.
    Unless it was an identical motherboard, you will need to reinstall from scratch as the Windows on that old HD contains hardware-info for the OLD mobo, which will not work (in 99%) with the NEW mobo.
    With just your videocard (or integrated video) on, nothing else, can you go into BIOS?
