On the motherboard everytime you start the VGA RED LED appears, just them.
the cpu and memory led never appears just for a moment and then VGA RED LED comes.

Unless he is running a HDMI from MB with the IB 4000 enabled, it won't help.
@ pbebeto, try the above if you have HDMI capability, If not, try to reseat your GPU. Make sure first to try the top PCIe slot if you have not done so already. Reset MB if and reset memory on the MB if you haven't already. If this has not worked, you may need to try the GPU on another PC. If you can't, I'm leaning towards a bad GPU. If you test it on another PC and it works, then I would lean towards the MB having problems. Hope this helps.
EDIT: I would have mentioned turning the PSU all the way off,, the power switch until the green light on the MB goes off and then restart. But, I say this because sometimes my PC won't start with the red light on with the Sabertooth by the GPU. However, I don't see this being your problem. Because when my system hangs it's not because my screen stays blank. I actually see a motherboard logo and bios process. If you see nothing you don't have this problem.Edited by Zantrill - 9/6/12 at 12:00am
