HDD, SDD, and Flash Drive won't finish booting or repairing


A week ago my computer just showed a black screen. Upon trying to reboot, the computer would again stop and show a black screen. I tried to repair, restore, and reset the HDD, and each time it would finish and go to reboot/boot up it would stop and show the black screen. I attempted to boot up from a flash drive to a new SSD, and that process also does not finish - giving me only the black screen.

I thought it was the issue was the motherboard, which is about 5 years old, so I bought a new one. Same problem.

The new motherboard is detecting the RAM and I'm not getting any random shutdowns, so I don't think it's RAM related (though it could be). My PSU is 7 years old, but the fans are running and the mobo gets power. Could it be the PSU? The CPU is 5 years old, should I consider replacing that as well?

The graphics card is less than two years old, for what it's worth.

Thanks in advance!
