yea i just saw that, they are pretty slow to update their XP versions, but the next BIOS should help, maybe try and older BIOS to be honest. Or just RMA the board.

Not sure if you've had adequate time to test the board out, but on mine the motherboard produces strange sounds when under load. It happens when moving windows side to side, using a lot of CPU, or HDD thrashing. I know it's not the normal capacitor buzz from my 260GTX since it made the noise without a videocard connected. If you have EnergySaver 2.0 installed, the noise happens when the orange LED's light up for a little while. Almost sounds like a mosquito originating from the chipset/sata connectors.

The HDD noise I noticed especially, since I'm using a SSD - which should be silent. My case is left open and extremely close to my ears though, closer than my monitor. Just curious if you've experienced anything like that.

I must update this thread in order to clear Gigabyte's name. I returned from vacation to find my replacment board waiting for me. Same thing, 1st boot everything looks good, 2nd boot no video again. Finally, I begin to suspect the monitor. After some research I find my monitor (vx2025wm) has DVI problems with windows 7/vista, where monitor will not wake from a sleep state. For weeks I used HDMI/DVI off of the integrated graphics which must have gotten around the issue somehow. Problem began when I added gtx580 with DVI. Now using VGA connection without problem while I research a new monitor. In the end Gigabyte is blameless and I have restored trust in my build.
