Did you try resetting Cmos or take out the Battery
and put it back ?
I did.

I talked with Asus today and they asked me to take the board out of the case and try to turn it on. To see if it could be short to the casing. I havent had time for that now but will do. If it still doesnt work, I'll have to claim RMA.

I know this thread is old, but the button you described sounds like an on board power button. It is usually solid red when it has stand by power. There are LEDs for the ram on some boards and what Solar told you about them are true.

You are right. Although the thread isnt that old. I received the new board yesterday. I had contacted ASUS which made me test the board out of the case and called it dead so I sent in RMA.
