Gigabyte GA-8KNXP wont goto POST

Hi, I've got an 8knxp (rev 1.0) based system, which was working fine up untill yesterday. Problem now is, when the box is powered on, nothing comes up on screen and no beeps from the box. I've tried the regular fault finds and diags, (stripping back to bare CPU, RAM and vid card), but no joy. Also, I know the CPU, RAM and vid card are fine coz I tried them all in another system and they all worked fine, so does the monitor. Oh, and yes, I did try resetting the CMOS as well by taking out the battery (no jumper for that on the 8knxp). Any ideas would be appreciated.

Where is the Driver for a SataI HardDisk when installing Windows 7, which is attached to a Gigabyte 8KNXP Motherboard? The Gigabyte 8KNXP Driver Download site has a Driver but it's for Windows XP.

According to Gigabyte, you have a Silicon Image 3112/3152 SATA chip on that motherboard. Below is a link to the Silicon Image support page. Here, under the Product support pulldown you will choose either of the two numbers (3112/3152) and scroll down the list and you will find a driver for Windows 7 for 32 and 64 bit 3x12 chips (where the x is any number). They also say to use the newest BASE BIOS and there are tips to update the chip's BIOS. I've never tried this before, but hope you have good luck!

This is because you are running 32 bit system. 32 bit system can only use up to 4GB RAM theoritically but some only 3.5 GB RAM.
Only 64 bit systems can use 4GB RAM and more.

Gigabyte motherboard GA-8KNxp will not power up

If you have just installed a new mother board, refer to your manual and double check your connections for pwr switch. If this is a machine you've had for a while and it just stopped powering up then your power supply is probably broken.

Monitor shut off, no BIOS post, no keyboard or mouse lights, will not boot

Try another (Known good monitor). Or try you're monitor on another system.
Remove all memory except 1 DIMM. Double check all data cables (internally) & power cables. Remove the added video card. Try booting the system. Watch for the case LEDs to flash/blink, listen for hard drive spin up /cd-rom spin up. Lastly pull the battery & check with a volt meter. Bios battery should test no less than 3 volts. Post the correct MD rev.

Gigabyte GA-8KNXP not going to POST

You can find leaky caps...
Anyways, those boards have very small inductors that look like caps and are used as pico fuses on most all peripherals and controller chips. Check that they are not blown and replace them with something from DIGIKEY or MOUSER
Also starting with the most simple, check that the power supply itself has not gone into SHOCK. unplug it from mains and TOGGLE the voltage selector switch, MAKE SURE it is back to 110 or whatever you need. 
I know it sounds weird but I have resurrected MANY PC's that way.
Other then that it sounds like you are well on your way to finding the defective component on your own. just thought I would throw in the fiew things that have caught me off guard in the past.
