I had already tested the power supply. The interesting thing is that when
I clear CMOS RAM (by shorting the two solder points as outlined in the
owner's manual) then plug it back in, it doesn't start up automatically.
Pressing the power switch at that point works, but then I'm back to where
I was before.

I'll see if I can replace the BIOS EEPROM before I just throw the
motherboard out. Anyone know of a good source for that? I've tried
contacting Asus, but nobody answers their phones and they aren't
responding to email!
