Well it could be the one rarest thing in the world to happen.

Have you tried your CPU? Its rare but I have seen a few DOA CPUs.

Because if two of the same mobos and two sets of RAM don't post, then something else is bad. Have you also tried posting it with just the CPU, RAM and GPU?

Still, sounds like the CPU is probably bad.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I tried posting it with just the CPU, RAM and GPU, nothing. After six days Asus replied, saying it must the cpu. A friend said he thought it was still the motherboard. After that I wasn't sure what to do. Being the lessor of two costs I ordered another motherboard. Now its up and I am loading windows7
What are the odds of having 2 bad mbs? Contacted Newegg to return 2 bad boards
Thanks for your help
