Not just once either.
I'm not a fan of Asus myself but in my experience the vast majority of "tech problems" are ID-10-T errors, usually caused by a nut loose on the keyboard.

When your build a brand new computer, You can't place the side back on the case before powering it up or it won't work.
Leave the side off and it's first turn on works perfectly.
Put the side on and its a 45 minute battle getting it to post.
