Default First build, already starting to play up... advice needed ((:

Hi guys i just built my first computer, my knowledge is limited.
i have been using it now for a good month, probably spending far to much time on it. And it is already playing up, it was running fine for the first two or three weeks, now every 1-2 days the monitor doesn't detect any input. usually when i re install the cpu it begins to work, im unsure of why this seems to make it start up again. Also it boots up by itself sometimes, and when the monitor isn't detecting any input the back fan sometimes decides to not work :S No idea what to do, could it be a problem with the motherboard? i've also checked the cpu the pins seem to be all fine. Any help would be much appreciated,

Many thanks, Ash

When you installed the motherboard in the case did you use the stand offs?

That and that they are in the right place. Easy mistake to do because the last one on one side are slightly off where another hole for the standoff is lined up with the others.

I have to go with the other two. It does sound like a standoff issue. Or a shorting of some sort.
