    I can't because the PC locks up and I can't press anything

    The FX 3600 is definitely worth a try.

    You quoted the above earlier.....if you can get this far you should be able to follow my post by putting your W8.1 cd in.
    If shift key does not work try another keyboard.

    I also have another post running on another forum and was recommend to reset CMOS and reseat GPU but to take out the CMOS battery I had to remove the GPU and noticed the GPU has scratches on where it plugs into the PCI slot, could that be an issue?

    edit: resetting CMOS does not work

    Not quite sure about the scratches for I can see them. Take a pic and post maybe? Did you throw the 3600 in it to try?

    but the second I press, press any key to boot from cd or DVD, the windows logo comes up and then I get the error message

    And I can't put my 6300 in yet because I'm out of rubbing alcohol so I have nothing to clean the GPU and heatsink with

    You are 90% there.....when you see this message hold mouse on bottom right hand corner and click on cog (settings) click on power then holding down shift key click on restart....you should then see on restart Choose an Option screen....if so follow my earlier instructions....post 37
    I never new this procedure and I consider myself a keyboard shortcut key combo guru. Thanks for sharing.

    More on this when I get back.
    In all my years at a keyboard and scouring the Net I've never heard of this. When did they introduce this?

    I did some experimenting. Of course it works performing your method. Start typing “startup options” when on Start Screen (WinKey/Q works also) and I got what’s in the snip below. As you can see, I got as far as “start” and Startup Options Menu appears.

    Click image for larger version

    It does not work on the desktop with the Power Menu (Alt/F4 on blank desktop) pushing Enter (with Shut down selection) and Shift key. It shuts down.

    I will pass this on to the Keyboard Shortcut Keys keeper.

    Thanks again for sharing.

    When you get the error message.....by pointing your mouse to the bottom right hand corner does the Charms menu appear?
    If so under settings Restart holding the Shift key....then follow my earlier instructions for an Image Recovery.
