This is the third Pro that I have had. The first one took 4 1/2 hours to get it to boot into Windows only to die a day later. The second board never posted. This third board has the CPU led on. Everything has power. If I hold down the Mem button it will reboot and no LED lights will turn on, but still nothing from the monitor. I know the graphics card works, and I've tried to clear the CMOS. I'm almost positive it is a memory issue. My memory is listed on the supported list, but it uses an XMP profile. I have tried two different sets of working RAM, and using only one stick.

Please help.

Same problem for me. I got my p8p67 today.
First it booted with my raid0. updated bios to 1053, then it didnt boot anymore. I found googled and found some more ppl with raid0 issues and1053, Then I downgraded bios to the one you get on install cd(dont remember version). Then the i cant get to windows installation, i just get error at 80%(windows have encountered a problem copying files blabla). Then I upgrade bios to the latest version 1204( ftp://ftp.asus.com.tw/pub/asus/mb/lga1155/P8P67_PRO/P8P67-PRO-ASUS-1204.zip ). Now it doesnt boot at all, CPU LED is red and nothing happens, tried to clear CMOS but it doesnt help...

Whats wrong.........

I read that you reset CMOS on this mobo by removing power + remove battery + move jumper? (googled it as well) I didnt find any info about reseting CMOS in manual...

Wow... 3 boards with problems that is ridiculous.

Same thing happened to me on my first board though. MemOK red light issues, cpu redl ight would blink on startup then would go away in boot. Eventually the board died with regular bios default settings. The ram I used was corsair vengeance 2x4g, checked on corsairs website and they assure me that this ram works with this board.

Your post worries me though. I put in an RMA for my board for a replacement... If the same crap happens to me again I'm through with asus.

I'm worried I just screwed myself by RMA'ing with Asus. I should have just got a refund from Superbiiz so I could've bought a different brand.

Try  if any of the two solutions below helps:
1. Shut down your PC, remove power cord, conduct CLRTC (CMOS Clear) with the CLRTC jumper moved to the clear position for 5 seconds, then back. 

This event will reset the Intel ME inside the Intel PCH, which should then resolve this problem, and enable high frequency DRAM support from the next boot up.

Once the system boots up right, ask them to enter BIOS setup screen, and enable XMP Profile or manually set the DRAM timing and voltage to what is indicated on the DRAM label then see if that helps.

If your system still won't do it, try solution 2:
2. Try disassemble your CPU, check if there is any bent pin on the CPU socket, if everything is OK, then install the CPU back on and try again.

Before continuing with my info below, be sure that after unplugging power, pulling the CMOS battery, and resetting CMOS jumpers, you hold the power button in for about 30 seconds to be absolutely sure the capacitor is emptied. Then return battery and plug in.  Reset jumper.  Turn on. 

If you have no video and your CPU light is red, then your BIOS is probably older than you think.  Check the sticker above the CPU on the edge of the motherboard.  The last 4 digits tell you what your BIOS version is.  Odds are, the problem is you BIOS.  It does not support that processor.  It needs to be updated.  Unfortunately, you have no video.  You will have to contact ASUS at 812-282-2787.  They'll have to send you a new BIOS chip.  They will want to charge you even if it is a brand new motherboard and processor bundle.

You can verify what I said by looking at your sticker at the upper most part of the motherboard.  There is a barcode.  The last 4 numbers must be higher than 0402 in order for your CPU to work. 

According to ASUS BIOS Department, it will take two weeks before their shipment will be in for that BIOS.  They will, however, accept your BIOS Chip and they will flash it for you.  Be sure to send your address and phone number in the box containing the chip so that they may contact you and charge you accordingly.  The address is:  PTSI, 121 River Ridge Circle, ATTN. Michele Tucker, Indiana, 47130.

My solution was a bit easier however.  I called Tigerdirect.  I explained the situaltion.  They gave me free shipping and an RMA number to return my motherboard.  I bought a new motherboard from Tigerdirect.  I asked them to check the BIOS before sending to me to make sure that it would support the I7 2600K 3.4GHz quad Unlocked CPU.  They charged me 189.99 but will refund my money once they receive the motherboard after the RMA Process has run its course.  I will have my motherboard in on Monday of next week.

Specs in sig, memory from QVL. My system rebooted several times before finally starting windows for the last days. I flashed to 1053 and checked all drivers while trying to figure out the problem. I ran coretemp to see if temps were high, they stayed low and never reached 60C.
Last night while using firefox, the system froze in windows 7x64 pro. No keyboard or mouse response (both are Logitech USB wired). I held in the power switch to reboot. The PC has not yet reached the bios.
I have tried clearing cmos (unplug, remove battery, switch jumper, wait 15 min, replace jumper, replace battery, plug in). I removed the cpu cooler and cpu to check pins. I had another person look at pins in case i was missing something, pins are all perfect. I replaced CPU/cooler. I swapped video cards with a much older 6600GT (known working), I tried putting the memory from A2/B2 to A1/B1. I tried with 1 Stick in B2. I tried with a stick with A2. I tried no memory at all (curiously same effect as having the memory installed) no beeps or anything.

Every time the pc starts and runs for maybe 2 full seconds, then stops, as soon as the fans stop moving it comes back on. The CPU LED stays on solid, the green onboard LED stays on solid.

I cannot change any settings in the bios since it never shows up. I have no video signal. I have tried another monitor as well (the one I am using now to type this).
This is very frustrating. When the PC worked it was fast and I was in love. I really don't want to have to return the MB, but it would seem I have to? Though it sounds like this same thing may happen with another new one.
Thank you for any help.
Larry

According to the manual the POST state LEDS indicate key component status during POST. If an error is found, the LED next to the component will light up until the problem is solved.
CPU_LED, DRAM_LED (Memory), VGA_LED & BOOT_DEVICE_LED are flashed / tested in this order.
Is this a complete new build or did you replace components in a running system? What components are installed including PSU. If you are utilizing an existing system, did you remove unused stand off's? Did you connect the EATX12v plug - 4 or 8 pin?
Can you boot off the Asus driver disk?
