power ok to case fans,dvd and floppy seem ok and the processor heat sink is warm with the fan making a few lazy turns before stopping. The monitor is also fine and switched on. I've checked the connections etc so can I take it that I have a dodgy motherboard. I understand that the bios should load from the rom chip on the motherboard but I get nothing on the screen.The board is a Gigabyte GA-81945GMF [with built in graphics and sound.

Do you get any beeps?

Try reseating the RAM modules

Remove and reseat the processor.
