What OS is it?

New mobo and memory only leaves CPU, HDD and graphics.

Start with the HDD and go Start>Run>cmd>chkdsk /f (Note the space between chkdsk and /)

It will not be muck as when fitting new Motherboard they would have cleaned it out

not if its power settings that just need changing

could be a driver that needs updating, or bad ram that they put in. why not get it done under the six months warranty
