    Custom build boots to solid blue screen

    Hi. I recently finished building a custom laptop (not really “custom” it’s a pavilion 15-bc that I bought all the parts for and assembled). When I power on the screen says “manufacturing programming in unlock mode.” It then proceeds to the “product information not valid” screen. This sequence happens whether there is a drive connected or not. If I try to do a normal boot to my cloned drive, the spinning dotted circle appears and then freezes. I assume this is because of the hardware change, and I anticipated such problems. I am unable to access the recovery environment though. So I backed up my media, wiped the drive, and bought an install CD. When I boot to the CD the HP logo appears and then the screen turns solid blue (not bsod, just solid blue). After a minute or so, the computer just powers off. I tried installing with the CD via another computer and it worked perfectly, so the CD is fine. I then tried a bootable USB and the exact same thing happened. Hardware is an i7-6700HQ, 8GB DDR4 single channel, GTX960m 5GB GDDR5, 1TB MX500. I’m completely at a loss and have no idea why I can’t run a windows install. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Are theses devices compatible with the machines BIOS?

    Ah, the memory I bought is 3200MHz and the OEM memory is 2133MHz. This certainly is something I need to fix, but would RAM be preventing a CD boot?

    I would make a Linux Live USB flash drive with a popular distribution like Mint. See if that boots. If yes, it is likely a Windows driver problem.

    Tell us a little story about the laptop. Witch parts you had and witch parts did you buy (new / used)?

    When I power on the screen says “manufacturing programming in unlock mode.” It then proceeds to the “product information not valid” screen.
    This two messages are typical of a brand new MB asking the computer manufacture code.
    Is the MB brand new? Did BIOS ask to insert any code?
    Is BIOS up to date?
    DDR 4 runs at 2400MHz base clock. 3200MHz is a 2400MHz overclocked so I don't see any problem.
