Good job getting the RMA from Asus; but while you are at it, I'd try the board bare on the cardboard box, with another PSU.

Default Success!

Hey guys, so I brought my PC in to my local computer store with an arrangement for some 1 on 1 time with a technician to see what is wrong with the PC. Guess what? I had a USB front panel connector plugged into my sound card. That is what was doing all of this. I am typing this on my new PC right now.

I am in a good mood, nothing was broken and I learned an important lesson: Just because something fits somewhere doesn't mean it goes there.

My System Specs


Glad you got it sorted out, but you were told 5-6 times to disconnect everything and obviously didn't. This problem would have been identified right away. We do know what we're talking about. I can see 3 of us with over 20 years experience building PC's posting in your thread trying to help you.

Enjoy your new system. Hang around, maybe you can help someone in the future.
