Ok so every once and a while I get this "fake" boot. I press the power button and the fans all spin but the HDD light never comes on and the monitor never comes out of power save. I though at first it was a monitor issue but after rebooting everything works fine. I cannot actually tell if the board is really booting or not. Maybe it is and I have a video card/monitor problem?

Any ideas on how to narrow this down and figure out what is going on?

One more clue, when it happens the led for the LAN blinks like it gets tested.
