ok, i have an asus m3n72-d motherboard. alot of times when i turn it on, i get no post, beep, no video, and no beep error codes. sometimes i do receive 1 error code that i have looked up and it says it has to do with the video card, which is a nvidia geforce 8500 gt. also my mouse ( razer deathadder) has a wheel that lights up and that doesn't turn off when the computer is off. the solution that works SOMETIMES is if i completely powerdown the machine and drain it of power by turning off the switch right on the psu and then hitting the power button to make sure there is no electricity left in it. this doesn't allways work however. when i do get the machine to post and boot, everything works fine untill something fails and my screen will go black from loss of signal and i'll hear sound ( if there is any playing at the time) go into a fast loop, playing the same half a second of sound over and over again.
i have checked that everything is plugged in completely and that the video card is seated properly.
oh, i'm running windows xp pro, 32 bit
