i am having this problem with the P5W-DH board. i moved it from one case to another. but when i power up, i get no video. usually this means the cpu is overheating. but the weird thing is that i didn't touch the cpu fan. it's mounted the same way. now when a cpu overheats, the computer usually shuts down. but this does not happen. the cpu fan keeps spinning, as well as the rest of the case fans. i tried isolating the problem further by using just one stick of memory. i cleared the cmos. still no video. i am thinking the bios is corrupt. but can this happen by just handling the motherboard. again all i did was put it in another case. i really didn't doing anything. any ideas what i can do. it just makes no sense to me that a bios can get corrupt by just putting your hands on the motherboard. i don't know what else it could be. the lights on the board are on. so i don't think it's faulty. maybe i was just unlucky.
