    Take a good look at the capacitors on the board.I had the same prob with a mobo a couple of weeks ago.There was a bad run os capacitors a while back and they tend to swell or leak.If the tops of the caps look to be swolen at all then this could be the problem. Give a little read here and it explains what happens and what to look for.One of the symptoms is a intermittant no start,this is what happened to my board.It would boot normally but the monitor would not turn on,after repeated attempts it would until it would not start anymore.

    That would be what your problem is then.They are repairable.I know there are a few guys around my way that repair them for about 50 bucks canadian.How old is your board? Is there any chance of it being under any kind of warranty? I believe the companies that installed these bad runs of caps in the past couple of years were recalling the boards that were effected.If you contact Gigabyte they may still do so for you.

    same with mine, when i ctr+alt+del, then everything starts up.

    mine is to do with my geforce ti4800 256mb overheating. It crashes during long gameplay sometime

    Well, the board is a soltek 75kav and I have had it for a few years now.

    I havent noticed anything wrong with it at all. No crashing randomly no overheating nothing odd. Just that hdd that died on me.

    I have left this pc on for 5 days straight once and never crashed.

    If they blow, ill have a fun time replacing the capacitors because i havent soldered for a while
