Unplug everything from your motherboard except 1 stick of RAM, the CPU and the video card, see if you can boot. Try different RAM if no boot, try different slots, etc until you get a boot then start shutting down and adding components until the system doesn't boot again.

If this fails then I wish you good luck :L

Hi guys,

I would like to thank everyone who pitched in and helped me out. I would like to share this knowledgebase with everyone who owns an asus rampage III motherboard and those who supports the people who owns one, such as myself.

I feel rather stupid for not refering back to the manual book for the MB.

In future references if anyone has any similar issues like I did. If it requires to clear cmos for the asus rampage III, the user is obligated to hold down the delete button when they start up their computer. I was reading the manual book and retracing my steps and it stood you need to press down the delete button once you have cleared the cmos, as it removes every information in the bios and it wont boot to windows.

So If the delete button isnt held down, it wont enter bios and it wont boot up.

Im happy that, I wasnt forced to remove everything from my computer to troubleshoot one by one, and chances were it wouldnt boot up either.

Thanks to you guys, I learned something new as well. I hope it will help for others too when they come across this thread.
