How to rewire my mother board

I had this mother board in my computer then it had problems. out of no where my screen would go black and my computer would shut off or restart. so i took it out of the case it was in and bought a new case power supply etc. all new parts. now i want to try hooking this motherboard back up and see if it still has the same problems as before. it is a biostar m7viz ver8.0. that is what is says on the motherboard itself. on the onboard printer plug thingy has a different sycker of numbers. if that matters please let me know. i do not know much about bulding computers but i can follow directions on hooking one back up and if i have to i can get my cousin to actually program it but i would like to see what i can do. thanks, wendy

Ok so from what I have read you want to rebuild your computer by putting in the old mobo back in? If that isn't what's going on then I am sorry this won't help much.
There are some little Brass stubs that come with most cases. They have a threaded pole on one side and a threaded hoel on the other. You need to make sure that they are lined up with the screw holes on the motherboard. ONLY USE AS MANY LITTLE BRASS THINGS AS THERE ARE SCREW HOLES IN YOUR MOBO. These act as grounds for the mobo. AND DO NOT PLUG IN THE POWER TO THE MOTHERBOARD UNTIL YOU HAVE SECURED ALL OF THE SCREWS INTO TEH BRASS NUBS. IF YOU DO PLUG IT IN AND TURN IT ON BEFORE THEN IT WILL FRY THE MOTHER BOARD. Sorry about the capslock but I really need to stress those points. Hope that helps

If your computer has a black screen and not booting to desktop

Normally if the computer has the black display then follow these steps:
1) disconnect the pwr cord form the back of the computer //
2) disconnect the printer and the internet cord//
3)hold the pwr button for 1 min and then release// this is called "pwr drain" when the pwr cord is disconnected//
4)connect the pwr cord and restart the computer and see if it boots or not.
5)if not then disconnect the pwr cord again and open the side pannel of the computer//
6)on the mother board you will find the RAM (MEMORY CARD) which will be approx 6 inch long", take out the card/s and plug the pwr cord and restart the computer//
7) if you get the beep sound then the mother board is ok and if you do not get the beep sound then the problem could be mother board//
8)if getting the beep sound then fix the RAM CARD properly and restsrt the computer// it shoul boot//
note** during all this process make sure that the pwr cord is pulled out when you put your hand inside the computer or else you can get power shock..

The problem can be bad inverter board or mother bd is not sending the signal to turn on the inverter, or no 12v getting to the inverter board. You need to open up the lid to check teh inverter board.

Computer turns on, but there is no display on monitor.

my goodness.. you have spent a lot in your computer i think.. i dont think changing mother board and installing a new vedio card will solve this problem.
as u have said that u have installed a new card make sure that you are giving the connections of your monitor to the gforce card and not to the mother board again.

if connection for monitor is going for gforce properly your RAM is the problem. as per your configuration its single 512mb ram. i would advice you to go and get another DDR RAM(same 512 prefrably) from any of your friend and put it in you mother board in by removing the normal RAM you had.
this will work for sure i think.
if this is not working dont rate me in-approtiate. i just triend my best. sorry and tahnks.. good luck
