Originally I had an issue with my mobo not loading the BIOS, the cpu fan would only turn on when I hold the reset button, and the hdd light would only illuminate when the reset button is pushed in. So I sent my mobo back to the retailer for an RMA and they sent me a new one. I have since received the "new" board with some of the problems fixed. The cpu fan now comes on as does the hdd light, still unable to load the bios. As a matter of fact I get nothing on the screen, it just clicks over to standby upon bootup. Ive tried installing a new cpu (nothing different) and I installed the video cards in a friends system and they fuction properly. If I disconnect the DVI cable from the video card it clicks on and then back to standby 5 seconds later. I've double checked the pwr connections and tried reseting the CMOS, i've never experienced this before, any suggestions? system specs below

ASUS A8N32 SLI Deluxe mobo
AMD X2 4400 cpu
600watt pwr supply
2 gigs Cosair 3200 ram
win xp pro
duel EVGA 7900GT video cards

A good 500W PSU is MUCH better than a 600W cheapo PSU...make sure got enuff juice (the Amps,12v@20A or more is safer)

He could run that system on a 400W one if he wanted to.
