    Well in that case, you may want to see about a RMA on the board then.

    It happens without any drives attached as well correct?

    Thats correct, hard drive and DVD drive disconnected and SATA channels set to NONE in the bios and it still happens.

    Well for what it`s worth here`s my reply from Gigabyte GTS "Hi,

    Does the motherboard boot up? Can you get a display on monitor?

    Please try to reset the CMOS -
    1) Disconnect the power cord from the power supply. Remove the CMOS battery (the flat silver disk) from the motherboard using a srew drive or similar implement. Leave it out for a minute or two, then replace it and power on the system. The BIOS settings should have been reset, allowing the computer to boot.
    2) Go into the BIOS - “Load optimized default”
    3) Save settings and exit.
    4) If this doesn’t work then try "Load Failsafe default"

    It doesn`t even attempt to answer my question about LED`s and it only took them about a week and a half to reply.
    The next step is to check my hard drive with Samsungs own tool, I`ll let you know the out come.

    Well I ran the Samsung Hutil tool and my hard drive checks out ok, no faults or errors so the problem must lie with the motherboard. As it`s two years old and out of warranty I think I`ll just leave it as it is, it may continue to work for a few years more or it might give up the ghost tomorrow.
    I think I`ll cross the bridge when I come to it.
    Thanks for the help guys :-)
