  A8N-SLI Delux, video problems or bahhhhhh

I have just bought this same motherbaord and I'm not having the best time with it. I put everything together and everything was running fine for a day or so. Last night when i tried to get on my computer my monitor was in standby and i couldn't get it to come back on. I tried restarting, it restarted just fine but still no video. I went to Best Buy and bought a new video card just to see what was going on, still same thing. Put the video card in hooked up the monitor cable and soon as it boots my monitor goes into standby. I tried clearning cmos, thinking it was bad video drivers, but still nothing.

I'm not getting any voice errors with a speaker hooked up to the board. The computer turns on just fine and runs but no video.

I let it sit till this morning and took it into work with me to see if i could get it working again. When i tried it at work i got the Bios post sreen and the the SATA setup prompt. Just after that it said, CMOS checksum error: Loading Defaults. Which i assume was from reseting CMOS, and the computer shut down. Now everytime i boot again, i get the same thing. no video, monitor goes into standby, but computer runs.

I've tried taking out the CPU and RAM and boot to see if i could get an error or beep. I put both back in by themself and still nothing.

What might i do to fix the problems I'm having. I'm not too good with power supplies but it seems i might be under powering the motherboard after reading this board.

The power supply reads as is :
input: 47hz-67hz- 100-125v-,5v/200-240-2.5A
DC output

+5VDC +12vdc +12vcd -5vcd +3.3vcd VSB
40a 1a 14a 1a 28a 2/5A

This power supply was bought for the last AMD system i built. Maybe someone out there can tell me whats going on or give me something new to try.

I think Sander was the only person in the world that had good luck with that board. Get the Gigabyte or MSI version instead.

Intel Core 2 Duo 1.83Ghz

Not true. My system is running great. As with any system out there, with all OEM's, there are going to be small problems with the systems as they are released. I have been building systems since 1979 when they first released the 8080 chip. I have gone through enough motherboards to sink a battleship. Asus has always been a stable and reliable product. I had 5 systems running at my house at all times for every member of the family. Thats only due to the fact that they get my hand me downs when I upgrade.

My only problem is my Road Runner connection!!!
