Sounds like a hardware problem. You might try clearing the CMOS and see if it will boot. Disconnect the machine from the power source (wall plug). Then you'll need to remove the CMOS battery. It's about the size of a quarter and is usually located just under the North Bridge chipset (has ASUS written on it). Just below the battery (labeled "clrtc" you should see 3 small pins with a jumper block on them. It should look like this, where the underscore represents the jumper . . . Move the jumper to the other pins . . . for about 30 seconds and then move it back to it's original position. Put the battery back in, making sure to put it in + side up. Try to boot your machine.
Note that this will clear the date, time, and restore all default settings to the BIOS. You will have to reset any settings you have changed such as Boot Priority. If you are not using a static strap, keep one hand or your arm touching the metal part of the case to prevent static discharge damage to the Motherboard and it's components.
This type of problem might be indicative of a bad power supply, as well.
Let me know how it goes...
