IME Asus mobos are very RAM sensitive. I'd try booting with one DIMM and see if that works. You can also run Memtest86+ from a floppy, CD or flash drive to check the RAM DIMMs individually and as a set.

I have read people getting this issue from cpu not being seated all the way. If you keep getting the DRAM light i would suggest RMAing. I went through 3 boards before i could one that worked

After trying a whole bunch of ram configurations etc.
i took into computer shop as nothing seemed to work.
they updated bios for me and unplugged a 'power light' thing that goes into usb2 on motherboard
works fine they didnt even charge me.

Im so glad i didnt ruin any components or need to rma any parts =D
