Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard
I agree with eng_omran, sounds like a hardware problem, and is bad Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard. In fact, I'm betting the one's that surround the processor. These 'Caps' are Voltage Regulators for the processor. (The processor has to have DC voltage within a specific range. Too much, or too little, the processor won't turn on, or if it's on it will turn off.
How to check for bad 'Caps'. Do a visual inspection. Most of the time a bad capacitor will have visual signs. Not ALWAYS, but most.
The style of Electrolytic Capacitor used on a personal computer's motherboard, resembles a small aluminum 'Coke' can. Looks pretty much like a small pop can. To simplify construction of it, let's just say this cylindrical aluminum can has a lid on top, a lid on bottom, and these lids have a seal. The top 'Lid' will have a K, or an X shape etched into it. Inside the can is Electrolytic Paste.
When the capacitor goes bad, or is going bad, the Electrolytic Paste inside develops a gas. Hydrogen gas. This gas may,
1.Make the sides bulge out.
2.Break the seals for those 'Lids', and ooze out of the top, or out of the bottom, or both. The paste is usually Yellowish to Brownish.
The K or X shape at the top splits open in some cases, allowing the gas to escape.

Check the viruses. It may have a virus who is doing it.
