I have cleared it once already via removing the battery, but I still don't think that will help me get into the BIOS. For some reason or another even when it asks me to hit delete to enter the BIOS it does nothing, and just continues on with the boot sequence.

When you boot up how many times does the ASUS Motherboard screen show? Mine like comes up once, then goes to the JMicron screen, then back to the ASUS screen, then to the Marvell screen, then back to the ASUS screen for a 3rd time, then on to the screen where it tells me it is shutting down in 15 seconds. Not once during the 3 times where the ASUS screen comes up does delete let me enter the BIOS...

I believe that is the standard BIOS boot for that board. It sounds like the USB ports are somehow shorting out. Have you tried plugging the keyboard into a USB 3.0 port? USB 3.0 has an off chipset controller so if it is an internal chipset fault it might let you into the efi.

Yes it cycles to the Asus screen 3 times, I usually just keep tapping the delete button till I get into bios. Your issue seems strange, try the Asus forums to see if they can give you a solution to your problem.

Ugh it is such a long drive there I am hoping to resolve this at home and leave that option for a desperate last resort. It would suck to make the drive out there and have it work perfect for them because I was doing something wrong.

Can I plug a USB 2.0 device into a USB 3.0 port? One thing I did do is I tried booting up with no USB devices plugged in and it still didn't work so I am guessing plugging it into a different port wont really work either.

Yeah I am tapping delete as well but it just keeps booting up and I can't stop it.

Also, could this be an ESD problem? I never wear one of those wristbands when working on my PC, I just usually ground myself to something metal while working and that has gone good for me so far because I haven't killed anything yet. But I guess there is a first time for everything.

Oh and if I run it out of the case what is the safest way to do that? Can I just like sit the mobo on top of the cardboard box it came in?

This is getting to the point where I just want to RMA everything and be done with it...

So I took everything out of the case and booted it in open air and it still didn't work, and not only didn't it work... but now it is more broken than it was before.

After I took it out and it didn't work, then I tried what Atomic suggested and plugged my keyboard/mouse into my USB 3.0 ports. When I booted like that it would not even post, and then the VGA LED was on in addition to the BOOT_DEVICE_LED. So then I unplugged them and put them back into the 2.0 ports and it booted back up fine. Then I unplugged them completely and the VGA light came back on again and it wouldn't post...

This is getting to be more trouble than it is worth to me. I have NEVER had this much difficulty getting a system running.

EDIT: I registered on the ASUS forums and this is what I said there:
Quote:
I am having the hardest time I have ever experienced when installing PC hardware and I am just getting really frustrated so I hope that I can resolve my issues instead of having to do a RMA or something.

Basically my hardware before was:
Intel E6750
Abit IP-35 Pro
4GB G-Skill RAM

then I upgraded to:

i5 2500K
ASUS P8P67 Pro
4GB Corsair RAM

Everything else in the machine remained the same. I also did not format my drives before swapping my hardware because I was just going to do that after I had all the new hardware in.

1. So the first thing I did wrong was after I got everything hooked up I tried to boot and it just started for a few seconds then shut itself off, which is when I noticed that I forgot to plug in the 8 pin CPU power connector to the motherboard.

2. After I did that, I started it up again several times and it did the same thing every time which was to start up for a few seconds then power off.

3. Then I booted via the MemOK! button, which got me to a screen which said American Megatrends at the top, followed by a bunch of info on my CPU, RAM, and installed devices. At the bottom of that screen it said:

Enter setup to recover BIOS setting.
USB Device over current status detected!!!
System will shut down in 15 seconds.

I also noticed that the BOOT_DEVICE_LED was solid red during the whole boot.

4. After that I tried to boot using just the regular power button again, but it still would just start up for a few seconds then power down again. The only way I could get past the POST was using the MemOK! button to boot up. So what I did was clear the CMOS, and after that it would POST just by using the normal power button, so I no longer had to use the MemOK! button.

5. I then tried booting up with:
- A single stick of RAM in any slot, alternating between the 2 I had.
- A single hard drive, then no hard drive.
- I removed my sound card.
- I disconnected all my USB devices.

6. After all that failed then I removed all the components from the case to run outside to make sure nothing in the case was shorting out the motherboard, but that didn't work either.

7. While the components were outside the case, I tried to plug my devices into different USB ports to see if that was causing the problem. When I had them in the USB 2.0 ports my system would at least POST, but when I switched them to the USB 3.0 ports the system would no longer even POST, and the VGA_LED was on as well as the BOOT_DEVICE_LED and I no longer got a picture on my monitor.

8. I then switched the USB devices back to the ports they were in before, and the system would POST again and get to the same place it was before. I then just unplugged all the USB devices I had plugged in, and again the system would no longer POST and the VGA_LED was on again.

I have been constantly starting and restarting my system now like this for hours... and I am worried that doing that may have further damaged it... but I have no idea what else to do, I tried nearly everything people suggested to me and I can't figure it out.
How long does it usually take to get a response on the ASUS forums?

So I just swapped out the 212+ for the stock cooker and STILL nothing, so the backplate wasn't shorting out the mobo.

Is there someplace, other than Best Buy, where I can take it in and have it looked at without having to return or RMA anything? I don't have the hardware I replaced it with anymore so basically I have no computer right now and I don't want to wait forever to get replacement parts.

Is there anywhere that I can bring in my board to test to see if it is defective? I would sure hate to drive all the way out to MC again just to find out it was a stupid mistake I made and return a perfectly good board. But I feel that I have tried everything and it just isn't working out.
