Question about ASUS PSU | A-45GA 450W RT (A45GA) Power Supply
My advise to you is to never turn of your computer!
the constant start and stop put stress on your power supply not to mention dust build up and if not properly cleaned the startup process can cause a short which I've seen so many times.
I have a computer which is 8 years old I never wanted to turn it off but leaving for two weeks vacation I turn it off. On my return the startup it shorted yeah dust build up.I had to replace the power supply, still running now. (A warm drive is a happy drive)

ok you open the pcb check the fuse first then replace it if faulty if it burns again then check 4 diodes then see if 200v big capacitor is expanded or not if so then replace it if not then check diodes after transformer if short then replace it

remove all the ram from motherboard and switch on the system and see it is working or not like just on and fan are rotating and the smps fan is also working and your system is giving beep sound for ram.try with other smps also some time problem with power supply also. Remove the connector of power switch and restart switch and directly try to on from shorting the connector with the help of pen or screw driver point. Some time faulty switch also give problem. Just try all these possibilities.
Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Have a good day.
