comment New build PC with display issue, sometimes load but most times it doesn't when powering up
Someone might be able to answer exactly, but unfortunately it sounds like one of those things where it becomes a process of elimination. It could still be the motherboard (don't discount that possibility, but it's one of the hardest problems to diagnose; check for bulging capacitors or any other obvious damage), it could be temps, it could be faulty cables, it could be the other things @Xen and I mentioned. Your power supply isn't too bad, but my first guess would be that, based on the symptoms.

Please include your power supply make/model. Do you have access to any other parts you can try (particularly, a spare power supply, but potentially a different graphics card)? TVs can be kind of finicky sometimes, maybe try a standard monitor and see if it changes anything? What drives do you have installed? Dodgy hard drives can sometimes cause weird stability issues.

comment Why is the total file and folder sizes in drive C: different from the folder size in Properties?
Tools like WinDirStat or TreeSize can also be helpful for finding hidden files.

They are cheap comparatively, not that it's a bad thing, it's just the feature set they have to hit the price point.

comment Motherboard replacement issue
You happened to pick two I can't answer for sure. Asus list the i5-2400S but not the i5-2400 in the compatibility list. Probably an oversight, since there should be no reason it wouldn't work, but maybe not? I can't get the MSI page to display the CPU support list for whatever reason. Based on specs both should work afaik. Be aware since they're low-end boards they're both somewhat limited, only 2 RAM slots, that kind of thing.

comment Problems with boot time, screen resolution after installing new graphics card
Sometimes the blurriness is the TV side: overscan or scaling may not be working in the same way between drivers. Check the TV settings to see if you can find options for overscan/scaling.

@Cfinley: I just find it amusing that some users are using downvotes to punish answers they <i>say themselves are valuable</i> because they believe the question is off-topic, rather than just voting to close the question...

@KarmaEDV: I'm not sure I see the problem -- superuser.com/help/on-topic: Super User is for computer enthusiasts and power users. If you have a question about … computer hardware, It is not a recommendation, it is an answerable question, it may be useful to other people with similar setups. But the mods will do their thing I guess if they see fit..._edit_: it's also not a recommendation request, so is potentially OT for hardwarerecs anyway, which only has a stubbed "on topic" section at this point in time.

No worries @KarmaEDV, thanks for the downvote for my valuable answer. That'll learn me for trying to help.
