If the power button doesn't work, double check the front panel connections in your manual.

Asus boards usually come with an internal speaker. Did you plug that into the board?

If it still isn't working, remove the board from the case. Place the board next to the case on a piece of cardboard. Plug in the psu, HD, video card, and 1 stick of RAM. Then try to boot.

The illuminated motherboard LED really doesn't mean that much. A PSU has two independent sections, the main power supply circuits that provide the operating power to the computer and a small (10 - 15 watt) 5 volt power supply called the standby power supply. Among other thins, the standby power supply turns on the motherboard LED.

Try going to the Asus's website they should have your drivers.

evreything is working crips but i just have one more question when i turn on my pc it takes atleast 20 sec so it can display anything is that to long or is that normal?

That is a bit long. You may want to check your BIOS setting to see if quick boot is enabled.

it could be a failing/weak psu. Coolmax isn't known for high quality psu's.

really well i didn't have enough $ to buy a good one But i think i should invest to a better one

Your psu should have plenty of watts and amps on the 12v rails. How long have you been using it?

When you start it up, does everything else power up quickly, other than the display? Fans, HD, LEDs...?

Here is one of my favorite psu's
