Put the Old stuff back then see if it boots, if it does fit parts and test one by one

PS Memory could be faulty or in wrong slots or wrong speed memory

I have a recollection that it might be some setting in the bios setup and the way it recognises the hard drive? if someone could look that up it might be the answer, I think it involved changing the SATA mode from AHCI to IDE
