Ok, i've had this problem since I built the computer, but I never really resolved it since I hardly ever move my case. Basically what happens is that the computer will turn on, and after about 5 seconds, shut off. I called asus and they informed me it was a grounding issue. So I removed the board, couldnt find any problems and re-attached it to the case. Same problem. Oddly enough if I removed the video card, I could get the computer to boot, when I would put it back in, sometimes it would boot up, sometimes it wouldnt. Eventually after removing it and reattaching it enough times I got it to work, anyone experience a problem similar to this and was able to resolve it??
