Black screen and no boot following BIOS confiq

I have been trying to solve this problem for a few days now and have down a lot of research before posting here.
I have built a new machine from some old parts either from my old machine (was working fine) and my brothers (also working fine)
The specs are below
CPU: AMD FX-6300
MOBO: Asus - M5A97 LE R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard
RAM: G.Skill - Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
GPU: MSI - Radeon R9 270 2GB TWIN FROZR Video Card
PSU: 600w Coolermaster RS-600-ASAA
After completing the build I could not get past the first (Press F1 to enter SETUP) as my keyboard was not working. I tried all ports (USB 3.0, USB 2.0, front and back) but the keyboard didn’t not activate. After reseating everything and resetting the BIOS the USB port finally started to work
On boot the BIOS told me I needed to activate CSM compatibility mode. However, it was already enabled and the boot would not proceed with this.
I then decided to reinstall Windows 7 via USB. As soon as the language setup screen come up the USB ports shut down again and
I couldn’t proceed with the setup. After doing some research I changed some settings in the BIOS to try and ensure the USB would stay active
NOW on reboot nothing happens, just a blank screen. Everything appears to be powered up (Case fans, GPU fans, CPU fans, hardrives etc) but it won’t load
I have ready numerous “What to do if” posts about this and I just cannot get it to work
I have tried all of the follow
Reseating all internal power
Removing all external devices
Reseating GPU, Memory, hard drives
Trying a different monitor & different ports on the CPU
A CMOS reboot (both removing the battery and the 2 pin method)
Removing all power connect and flushing the surge by pressing the power button several times
Unfortunately, the MOBO doesn’t have an onboard video card so I am unable to test it that way
Also I have no spare parts so I am unable to swap things around Any other suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!!
