Asus MB won't boot for 42 hours after power outage

Hello all.

Long time reader of the forums, but first time posting.

I have a problem with my PC. I have a rig with an Asus motherboard. AMD Phenom II x6 3.20Ghz/ 2.80 Ghz x6 Cache 9MB. Sadly I would need to turn on the PC to see what the MB serial number is.

Whenever I get a power failure at home, the PC won't turn on. I have to wait 42 hours for it to begin working.

I read somewhere that it has to do with a BIOS power management option. I have tinkered with it in the past, to no avail.

Definitely this didn't happen before.

Any pointers on what can I do to solve this?

Thanks in advance.

I would be thinking of a new PSU. a UPS system may be a good idea as well.
