Question about ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard
Check the out put voltage of your power supply.. If possible try using a digital multi-tester. Check the standard reading on the power supply connetor, the red wire should read +5 volts while the yellow wire should read +12 volts..
If the readings is below the standard output voltage, then it means that the supply current for the motherboard and other hardware like harddrive and cd drive is not stable.. it cannot supply the required voltage to run your motherboard.
Check also if there is something that affects the current stability of the power supply...like for example check all the cooling fans, exhaust fan or blower fan that is already burnt and yet still connected to the power supply.
Hope you find the problem from this solution..
Much appreciated if you rate this solution.. thanks..

I think you have just about covered everything by testing the hardware out on a different system. The only vital thing that you haven't checked is the PSU (Power Supply Unit).
Get another power supply of the same type and try that in your system as faulty PSU's can cause these problems even though the motherboard is showing that power is being received, it could be showing a false positive.
Please let me know how you get on and if i can provide anymore assistance.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
