Problem: After 6 months of working well, video will no longer display after a restart, auto-restart(from windows update), or pwr-cycle using the 4 second pwr-down method.

Only way to get video is to turn off system, unplug pwr cord for 2 minutes, re-insert pwr cable, and start system.

Puzzled beyond belief..

Symptoms match defective PSU with problem in standby/startup circuits.

I certainly agree, but I think it could possibly be a MB issue. Most likely PSU, but if the MB was junk and the PSU was quality... might tip the scales a bit :)
