Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
Sounds like a RAM issue, or failing motherboard.
However, first thing I'd do is boot into the bios and set the bios to "defaults" or "optimum defaults" or whatever safe-defaults option there is (might be in the last tab/menu/page where you exit or save). Sometimes we inadvertently make a change in the bios which causes issues like this, and resetting things to "stock" settings will fix this.
The CHEAPEST and first thing after that I'd do is replace that bios battery (Cr2032 as I recall).
Then I'd download and reinstall the Bios, if the problem persists.
This is often what happens when small things begin to fail on a motherboard. It could be the battery, or a small regulator circuit or diode for timing or RAM or bios functions. I've got some older machines that do this everytime I shut them off. I've replaced the bios and battery and that fixed it many times.
The troubleshooting can be too tedious, even with newer motherboards and gear. If you're set on continuing and these things don't fix it, pull EVERYTHING off the motherboard except the cpu/heatsink fan and one stick of RAM (no optical drives, no hard drives, no peripheral PCI cards). If that doesn't fix it, then change the PSU or swap it out to make sure you're not dealing with an inadequate power supply to the motherboard (faulty PSU's cause all kinds of odd problems to computers).
No luck, replace the motherboard.
