I put this pc together about 2 months ago and a month later, it stopped working and since ASUS has horrible customer service, it took me 1 month to finally get the motherboard replaced since I thought the problem was the motherboard.
well I just got the new motherboard today and put it in the PC but still same problem.
When I try to turn the PC on, it starts for a split second and then shuts off.
The only think visible after that is the "start" button on the motherboard. When I press it, nothing happens.
I have the Asus Extreme VI
Can this be the power suplly?
DId I set it up wrong?
I did use it for almost one month with absolutely no problems though.

Your power supply isn't the best. Also did your CPU cooler become lose? It could be overheating. Try swapping out power supplies. Never save money on power supplies.

No its not loose. I just checked.

Also, I remember this happening the first time exactly when my wife turned the light switch in the room. I did not know if this was a coincidance or the actual sign of what might have caused it.
I have a feeling it might be the power suplly. too but How can I make sure before I take it out and send it in for replacement or refund?

Use something like hwmonitor to check yhe voltage on all rails the +12 should not be lower than 11.5 at idle and load.

Yes, looks like a power surge. Try borrowing a power supply or getting a cheap used one to just find out.

Oh sorry, it was just a wild guess btw.

I just thought that you can observe if the voltage fluctuates on 24 pin rail by doing that..

You know... like if the power supply can maintain an adequete and continuous power to the components.

But just a wild guess.
