THank you to anyone who is reading this. I have a pretty bad problem with my new Sabertooth mobo R2.0 revision 1.01. It takes me at least 3 attempts every time to turn my computer on from a cold boot. I normally press the power button, wait, and... nothing. Fans spin up, lights come on but no display on the screen. Ill turn the computer off and back on and this time ill see the BIOS screen (where you have the option to enter the BIOS) and it will just stay there indefinitely. it doesn't respond to button presses or anything and I am forced to turn it off again. By the third time I am usually good, it boots to Windows with no problem and the computer is 100% solid after that. This is a bizarre issue that has been plaguing me since I first got my Sabertooth board, I originally thought it was DOA. I have had absolutely NO other issues with it other than this and Asus support was perplexed as well, they have no idea whats going on. I can OC with this board no problem and when I am doing restarts it boots without a hitch, its just cold boots that are the issue. PLEASE someone help me.

sounds like a dead power supply it might not be able to keep the voltage regulated

As others have stated, the topic has been beaten to death. The horse is not just dead, it's rotted away, its flesh gone, and the bones turned to dust. We're not just beating the dead horse, we're beating the ground hard enough and for long enough to create a crater rivaling those from the Moon.

Wouldn't that cause other issues? Because even when I have CPU and GPU's OC'd to the max it runs flawlessly.
