My ASUS motherboard failed and I RMA'd it, I got it back and reinstalled it and everything into the tower. I tried to boot it and it only powers on for several seconds and shuts off! Can anyone suggest what steps I might take to troubleshoot it? ASUS recommends 2" of padding all around the part to prevent damage in shipping, however they return shipped it in a FEDEX express box only about 2.5" thick with thin foam sheet wrapped over the I/O end and the opposite end...WAY TO GO ASUS....nothing like practicing what you preach!
