Double check when you are booting down the system. Could be that it isn't totally shutting down or not shutting down properly (see if you get a message at shutdown about not being able to close an application, usually happens in XP). Then double check that application and see if you can maybe stop it's services before shutdown - then see if that fixes the issue.

Really sounds like the system isn't shutting down all the way or isn't shutting down properly, which is causing the error you are seeing (or not seeing )

You need to explain this step a lot clearer.

So you wake up and turn the PC on. Does it post? Does windows load? Can you get to desktop? Or do you power on the PC and nothing displays on the monitor?

In order to help you we need specific outlined events. We need detail and accurate descriptions.
I'm more than willing to help anyone with PC issues, but I'm not willing to ask "YOU" 400 questions before I have a clue what you are actually talking about.

1.) Are you certain that you have the front panel "POWER SWITCH" connected properly to the motherboard based on the MOBO manual?

2.) Are you certain that you have the front panel "RESET SWITCH" connected properly to the motherboard based on the MOBO manual?

What type of Monitor are you using? Does it have any type of power light on it that will display say, "Green or Blue for active" & "Orange or Yellow or Red" for inactive?

Ok. Now we are getting some where.

When you power on the PC and you see nothing on the screen but black, is the light on the monitor GREEN or YELLOW??
