Backstory: About a month ago my computer shut off randomly. The power supply stopped working, and the motherboard was shot. Took it to a computer testing place and they said that the power supply does not work, and to send in the motherboard for a warranty. Also mentioned that my CPU was only running at about 80%.

Today: Got the new motherboard in the mail. Plugged everything in properly and tried to boot. Computer did not boot with the SATA SSD plugged in. Unplugged the SATA and booted through the motherboard. This worked, however the CPU is running at 2.5k+ RPM all the time. Currently I just have it shut off to prevent messing anything else up.

Any tips on what to do from here? Any advice would help, thanks!

EDIT:
Motherboard: ASROCK B365M PRO4
CPU: Intel Core i5-9400F Coffee Lake 6-Core 2.9 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 65W BX80684I59400F Desktop Processor Without Graphics.
HDD: Mushkin Source 500 GB SSD

You did use thermal paste?

What it the make and model of the power supply?

The bottom of the motherboard is not in any way touching the case?

You will probably have to clean install of the Operating System.

You did make sure that the previous RAM was compatible with the new motherboard?

Is the CPU the (RO) (UO) or (PO) you may need to do a BIOS update for it to work correctly?

Thanks for the response!

Thermal paste is on. Should I apply more? Power supply is CORSAIR RM750 (bought a new one). Motherboard is not touching the case.

The new motherboard is the same as the old one I had, I got a new one under warranty. I'm assuming the RAM is still good if it was compatible with the old one.

As far as the CPU, it seems like it is all up to date.

For clean installing the operating system, should I just plug the SSD into the motherboard and plug in the Windows 10 USB I have? Also a side note/question, is it possible that when my previous power supply gave out it killed the SSD with it?

Update: Fan and CPU are working fine now. Averaging about 1500 RPM after adding more thermal paste. CPU temperature is steady.

PC still won't boot with the SSD plugged in. Found my Windows 10 USB and product key. I unplugged the SSD and plugged in the Windows USB, and it allows me to boot through there to the Windows installation screen. Tried booting with both the USB and SSD plugged in but it doesn't start, even after setting it to boot through the USB from the BIOS screen (think that's what it's called, the F12 screen at start up).

Also tried plugging in an external hard drive to install windows on but it says you can't install it onto hard drives plugged in through a USB.

If it is the same Motherboard then the RAM should be fine then.

Look in BIOS to see if the SSD is listed there. Yes there could be a possibility that the SSD could be bad.

When it load the Windows install how far does it let you get. Can you get to where you can see the SSD drive?

Is there Data on that drive that you want before we do a complete reinstall?

May look similar to this.

Yes I can get to that screen, however I can't get to there while my SSD is plugged in. I can only get there with the windows USB.

As far as data on that SSD, there's nothing significantly important, but I would like to try to keep it if it's possible.

I was able to get to that screen with an external hard drive plugged in via USB, but it didn't let me install to that.

Others may have more thoughts that you could try.

Please do not use the Reply button it copies the previous post just scroll down and type in the text box and click the Post Reply Button. Do not worry about it if you did not know.

Do you have a SATA to USB and or another system that you can put in the drive as a second drive?

Did you ever look in the BIOS to see if the drive is listed there?
If it is not listed there may be a chance that the drive is bad. Which is why I am suggesting that you try it in a different system to see if it can read it.
