    My computer stuck on power on self test after Win8.1 insta

    Hi everyone,
    I am getting this issue lately. I have a new motherboard AsRock ConRoe 945G-DVI with Nvidia GeForce 7300LE graphics card with Intel Pentium D processor. I installed Win8.1 succesfully, but where it said "Windows needs to restart" i restarted, and now I am stuck at power on self-test. I can't even go to BIOS.

    A POST failure is usually a hardware issue. What does the screen say? Any Beeps?

    No beeps at all. All things work, but I can't get past this screen:

    AMIBIOS©2005 American Megatrends, Inc.
    ConRoe945G-DVI BIOS P1.10
    Cpu: Intel Pentium D CPU 2.80 GHZ
    Press F2 to run setup
    Press F11 for boot menu
    Dual-channel Memory mode

    I pressed all the buttons that I could, nothing happened. I can't even boot anything.

    You say new motherboard. Make sure all connections and switches are set properly. Is the PSU rated high enough for your configuration?

    The PSU is very good. It just happened when Win8.1 install was done, and i restarted. Nothing happens when i press F2 or F11. There's a BIOS update for my mobo, from 2010, now i am using the 2006 version. I can't do anything to flash,to enter BIOS.

    That "new" motherboard isn't really so new. It may have just decided to pack it in as alphanumeric suggested above.

    Try resetting BIOS. OS have not come into play yet since BIOS got stuck in POST mode so installing W.1 has nothing to do with that problem.
