    The first thing to do is eliminate the graphics card as the problem. Remove the card and see if the problem persists and then post here again. :)

    First I"d like to say thanks for your input
    I uninstalled card and driver shut it down and no more probem,
    led stays on after power down but fades out in a minute or two
    its a bummer cuz i really don"t want to pull this card it works great
    id still like to use it.
    my comp components are:
    ASUS M3A78-EM MB
    AMD Phenom X4 9850
    seagate barracuda 7200.10 750GB HD
    4 gb of corsair xms pc6400 DDR2 800mhz
    LG 22xdvdrw
    corsair vx550w psu
    ultra xblaster case

    i well continue to look for a fix for this, anymore ideas on this welcome

    Strange issue, try updating your BIOS?

    Are all your other drives up to date?
    Did you completely remove all previous graphics drivers before installing the ATI ones?
