Just tried it... and sadly it doesn't. I also tried jump starting it with wire too.
This is so weird, because power is going through the motherboard... it makes no sense why this isn't working.
I just recently called Asus support to see if they had any idea what was going on... after explaining everything, he came to the conclusion that it has something to do with my power supply. Though, with 750 watts, he said that was enough to start up the system.
It's so damn frustrating to know I was THIS close to starting it up, just to have some stupid panel not work.
