  1. I just bought a new mobo, (Gigabye GA-8N-SLI Pro) and after plugging in the PC and booting, all i get is a black screen, it doesnt even POST. after being on for a while it shuts down and then reboots itself, i see LED's glowing on the motherboard, and all my fans are going..i had this problem with another PC also, which is why i got the new motherboard...all my things are plugged into a surge protector...could my surge protector be on the fritz, or am i just unlucky with my new motherboard?
