sometimes NO Display after awakening from sleep mode / power on

So the problem started happening after I transferred all of my components into a new case. I would put the PC to sleep mode and when I wake it up, I get no display on my monitors (dual monitor setup) even though I hear the HDD and fans starting up...

So Instead of sleep mode, I have been shutting down the computer. Then when I power it on, I get a display for the ASUS splash screen and Windows splash screen but then after that I get no display for about 5 minutes. If I wait long enough, it eventually displays my desktop.

I have updated all of my drivers and have done Windows Updates, etc.

What do you guys think the problem could be?

Did I short out my graphics card when I transferred everything? Windows/Drivers issues? Power issues?

I use a 32" 720p LCD TV as my main display and a 23" LED monitor.
My graphics card is Galaxy 9500GT and it does not have a power connector slot so all of the power is coming straight from the MOBO

Thanks in advance

More than likely you have a double whammy sleep mode on your computer. Not only do you have the windows sleep mode, but you probably also have sleep mode in the BIOS on the motherboard. Either turn off the windows sleep mode, or go into the BIOS and change the sleep mode setting to "OFF" there. This should fix the problem.
