I am still waiting for a reply from ASUS, so I decided to try to get the pc to run one last time. By the way, i changed the CMOS battery, but that didn't fix it. I managed to get windows 7 on it again, but it would just freeze up as usual. (Even in safe mode) When I would reboot it, it the bios shows a message about recoving settings. "It said press F1 for setup, or press F2 to load defualt values." That definitely is not normal for this motherboard. I'd say that is a definite sign of a bad board. I'm just curious at what is causing all this to happen...

I moved one memory stick around in all the different slots, and it would work. Here's the weird part, yesterday, the PC wouldn't boot with a stick in the "A1" slot, but I could have two sticks in slots A2 and B2 at the same time, or just one stick in B1. Last night it also wouldn't boot with all four sticks. Overnight I let it run with one stick in slot B1, and it was still running great, it ran 13 hours without a problem. (new record) Now I put all four sticks back in the slots this morning, and it booted without a problem?!?! I had a WTF?!? Moment... lol I really have no idea what's up with this board, but it seems to be working.. "fingers crossed"

Ok, so after fighting with ASUS for two months (long story), I FINALLY got my beloved PC running again. Turns out it was a bad motherboard.
Anyway, I will explain the situation with ASUS support. Remember when I got the RMA for my motherboard? Well the email I received from Mr. Franklin Archibald stated to include "All ASUS accessories" with the package (I now know that you DO NOT do that) and so I did, not knowing any better. So then when I got my replacement motherboard, it was just a board, no SATA cables, I/O shield, VGA switch card, Nothing... So I called ASUS support (my ass) and asked what was going on, the guy accused me of "modifying" the email (which I forwarded to him as proof) and sent me a credit card form to pay for the shipping of my products back to me. I refused to pay and told him I am not going to pay for ASUS's mistake. Then five calls and a month and a half later, I demanded to talk to a supervisor/boss to resolve this issue. After talking to this man, he realized that it was NOT my mistake and told me he would fix the issue. Then just last week I received a package from ASUS with all the accessories for the M4A89GTD series boards. To sum it up, DO NOT SEND ANYTHING WITH A MOTHERBOARD BACK TO ASUS, even if the email tells you too. In my case the RMA email that I received was for an ASUS router, not a motherboard, which explains the need for all the parts.
Here is a copy of my RMA email.
