I feel your pain.

Please check your PSU connectors have not come loose, it only needs one of the little metal pins in the 24 pin plastic connector to come loose for your system to not post. Check all of them while you are at it.

What you do not list is your PSU and that is most likely where the problem lies.

Could you also include what the 2 digit code your LED poster is stuck/stopping on.
To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

Ah thank you.

Here is what you should do.
Remove all PSU connectors from your motherboard.
That includes VGA and HDD connectors.
Please remove your CPU and cooler. Check your socket for any bent or misaligned pins.
Remove the battery from the motherboard (near the PCIe lanes)
Clear CMOS and leave your system as is for two hours (or overnight if you can)

Then put the system together.
One stick of ram
Keyboard and mouse
VGA
Now the power cables
And power up.

Hi, I know what you are going through. I've been finding ways to fix this issue for over a month. I've thought about any possibility in existence that can lead to this issue. I posted this issue a month ago and no solution has been brought up except a temporary one. This issue is extremely bizarre because it seems to only boot under unexplained conditions.

See: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?22612-Need-help-R4E-Dead-dilemma.

Now, your board will magically boot in a few hours or even days. It will seem like the issue is resolved and you will notice that your time/date settings are off. This is what happened to me which made me thought that it's an issue with CMOS battery.

Which made me make this thread: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?23742-R4E-CMOS-Battery-Replacement&country=&status=

Except it wasn't the CMOS. As per suggestion, I replaced the CMOS battery with a Duracel one and the issue still exists.

I've done a lot of things. From dismantling the rig multiple times and moving to a new home (though please refrain from believing that I moved to a different home because my PC wouldn't boot) and I still experience it.

Check that last thread out. I have videos, documented observations and various suggestions from Nodens and users. I've also been talking to Scott who's helped me a great deal with RMA processing (I gave up and so have they).

If what I wrote in those threads follows your experiences to the letter, try doing my tests. Let me know if you have more questions. PM me if you must.

I can only hope you're not going through the same thing I am.
