Remove your ram and make sure the edge connectors are clean then remove the CPU and check for bent pins.

If you changed motherboards but used the same CPU & RAM as before, isn't it likely that there's a problem here? Most likely the CPU which glitched when you powered off ungracefully.

Or have I read you wrong? New components throughout should have worked.
