    I removed the CPU and replaced it again and everything is working just fine.

    Thanx, everyone, for all of your help.

    Could I have fried the CPU with all my power supply attempts from before, and if so, is there some way to test that?

    And why would that be happening?

    Just tried tapping F8 on boot up. Still no signal.

    Well I have the exact same problem as the OP and I know its not the power supply because first I've run the system for 10 months with the same power supply no problem, and second because I tried a new power supply. I sent my board to ASUS, they had no problem taking the board back, and they say 10 business days from recipt, but I think it'll be sooner.

    Here is a link that was PM'd to me by my good buddy, GalvanizedYankee, from the Anandtech forums. I don't know if this applies to the OP's situation or not, but here's the link: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article273-page5.html . It's the notice re. the Antec Neo HE in the yellow sidebar toward the bottom of the page...

    The issue isn't that the Motherboard is single rail or dual rail, there is no such thing. Only power supplies are dual or single rail. What happens, say you have two 450 watt power supplies, the single rail 12V line might be 35amps. But the 450 dual rail will have two 12V 18amp rails. If what you are pluigged into is requiring 20 amps 12V, the dual rail isn't going to make it. Because no plug can put out more than 18 amps. But the single rail power supply can put out, in theory, up to 35 amps.

    But I'm still not sure this is the problem.

    Spoke with the Mobo people this morning and they told me that they have never heard of dual rail/single rail PSU.


    Still waiting for single rail PSU to come in and try that before going through all of the rigamarole with the mobo people.

    Anybody found out their monitor not working solution, yet?

    Hey OP,

    Pretty sure it's NOT the railness of the PSU - it's definitely something else.

    pr1nt, I see you think it might be the video card, I have a feeling I might have shocked my video card, so maybe I will try to replace that before I send out my mobo to ASUS for RMA.

    edit: i don't think its the videocard because it did the same thing when I had no videocard installed.
