I did reset the CMOS and it does the same thing.
It displays right away with the onboard graphics, so I don't think it is the motherboard. This is the second Video card that behaves the same, so I don't think it is the card. That leaves the 3rd option, compatability.
Well, I guess I can live without getting into the bios. Everything else seems to work fine and the computer will remain on all the time as an HTPC...sooo, I guess I can learn to live with it.
Thank you, Eydee, I appreciate your help.
EDIT: No, I can't live with it if Windows Media Center doesn't work. What was I thinking? I really don't know what to do next to find the exact problem and fix these issue. Contact the motherboard manufacturer, maybe?
