Re: ASUS EZ-PLUG not plugged in?
ASUS EZ_PLUG is optional for SLI mode...this model of your motherboard has an SLI that connect 2 video card using pci express...if this is only you problem for bugging the EZ_plug not connected,you can disable that in BIOS setup...

If your case is not setup for chassis intrusion, the motherboard has dropped a jumper. The location is by the last PCI slot between the CD audio connector and the USB bus plug. (it is right next to the CLRTC jumpers)
it seems to be a hardware issue. to find out whether the bios or the handling of components is causing trouble, do as follows
when booting up, press pause-button after video-card and RAM check, right when the system components are being listed(screen will halt) now look if two or more components(like network card, IDE-controllers) are using the same IRQ. If so this could be your problem, because then internal handling on the hardware side fails. to fix it, enter bios(press F1 orF2 orDEL during booting), set all the IRQ handling to auto mode and if there is an potion available: plug and play operation system, then disable it.
Now the BIOS manages all components, not windows(it has the capability, though) now boot up and in windows left-click start, goto: settings - control panel - add/remove hardware - hardware wizard run the wiz and if it does not find any problems u did it.
you need to go into the bios of your pc.....usually pressing the delete key when you see the first logo screen after booting up....look for a section that relates to errors and what the bios is supposed to do when it encounters an error.
i.e if you see a line in the bios that says "halt on all errors" disable it and when you next boot up the bios will not stall.
you could try to reseat the card. sometimes the cards don't fit quite right and when you plug in the cable maybe it moves it enough to get a bad connection.
does it post with just the cable pluged in pluged out?
did that help:)
If you have your manual you can see how to connect these on pg. 1-22. No manual..
Starting from the right edge of the board moving to your left. Notice there is two rows of pins one above the other. All your case connectors will be connected left to right & not up to down. The first two (BOTTOM ROW) pins are for the reset switch. The connector will have two wires one will be colored white or black. These colored wires are ground & will be the sane for all your connectors. All grounds will face towards the right for both rows of motherboard pins. After plugging in the reset connector SKIP one pin as you move to your left along the bottom row. Plug in your IDE LED connector a two wire connector. Moving to the top row across from the ide led, plug in the Power Led. It is a two wire connector. Some case connectors for the power led come in a three pin connector. If yours is like that than you will need to remove the + wire from the connector & slide it over one slot so it is next to the ground & plug it onto the board.
The last two pins is for the Power button. All Asus boards are marked & colored. You need a stronge flash light to see the markings on the board. Good luck!

Unplug everything from the motherboard leaving only processor, fan and memory and try to boot up. It will take you to bios screen halt after looking for boot device. If it uses a video card, make sure video card is properly inserted.
Then start plugging in hard drive and other devices if system comes up.
