The average life span of a cmos battery is about five years.
The Asus P4S533-MX mother board hit the market in 2002/2003. Suggest you pull the bios battery and check its current voltage. It should read 3 volts DC. Double check the bios jumper. The jumper should be across pins 1 and 2 (This is Normal default setting). Open you're manual to page 1-15 for more information about the bios jumper. (CLRTC1). When in the bios you should set the time and date to current date and time. Save and exit the bios. When you boot your system and the bios auto loads it's self automatically usually its due from a wrong setting within the bios or its not maintaining its voltage. Consider the price of a new battery.

please check the system memory (RAM) remove them and carefully clean in mouth with a clean A4 white sheet
or change the memory if possible...... and if problem still occur, please check the system processor too... to check if the processor is functioning, remove the heat sink on the processor and boot the machine placing your finger on the processor chip. it burns your finger after a short sec. BUT this should be done in a controlled way and after the memory had been tested for
Did you try resetting your BIOS. If you havent then reset your BIOS and try to start the computer again. If it doesnt start then there is problem with memory. Try another slot(PC has two slots for RAM right) if it still doesnt work then you may have to try replacing your RAM.
Does it have a built-in system beep buzzer? or else you need to connect one. The system beep has a code and will tell you if your video is not connected or your memory is not detected.
Try to make it boot even until the bios screen. Check your video card or your monitor connector. A single beep is a good sign that your motherboard has no problems. hope this helps
well its quite simple.you have set the wrong latency for rams. I suggest you put a latency around 3 reset the bios and check the latencyes..you know that you must have all the rams from the computer to the same data..like all the timings or latency. good luck.. bye bye
