Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard
1) if you have nothing in a USB port you will need to set bios
Try removing M/board battery for 2 to 3 hours some people say less then replace it most times it should set BIOS back to default
also check setup of hard disks master slave etc
Last resort with 15 seconds you should be able to see
press ?? key to access BIOS next boot keep pressing key see if that works

Shut the power down to the computer all the power and pull the power cord out, remove all usb devices except the mouse and keyboard, Turn the unit back on and see if this fixes the problem, if it doesn't then you will have to go into the computer and clear the c-mos this will allow you to get into the bios screen from there you can set up the computer again. Check you manual for the instructions on bios reset, most times it is just pins 2+3 that need to have a jumper installed to reset it. READ THE MANUAL PINS 2+3 APPEAR ON MANY THINGS ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD

Unplug ALL Usb devices, that includes printers, cameras, pen drives, i.e. anything that plugs into a USB connector. Then try rebooting your computer. I bet your problem will no longer exist, but if it does, then you need to suspect a faulty USB connector on the motherboard or USB chipset located on the motherboard. Once the computer is booting normally without USB devices hooked up, you can start installing ONE Usb device at a time, until you find your defective USB device. The USB device drivers will need to be installed and computer rebooted at least once between the various devices. Not doing so will lead to confusion as to which USB device is causing your high current problem. It is also possible athough a bit unlikely that this procedure will cure your situation for the time being but look out for it in the future because it could be an early sign that one of your USB devices is going bad.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to boot
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 or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps
