So 3 days ago, when I turned off my computer, I noticed a green blinking light in the corner of my motherboard. It only lights up when the computer is off. The only thing that I did differently that day is that when I turned my pc off, I had forgotten to eject my external HD. The computer still turns on even though it doesn't respond immediately after you press the power button which is an issue that also started that day. It runs fine once its on.
I tried to look at their manual but it doesnt say what it means.

Thank you!

That LED is associated with the USB Bios Flashback function.
Normally, if you hold the button on the back down for a few seconds you would see that light flash a few times and then it would attempt to do the BIOS flash if there was a drive with a Bios image on it attached to the right port.
As for why yours is stuck on or how to turn it off, sorry I'm not sure, possibly the button got inadvertently pushed. Maybe try removing all power for a while, or do a CMOS clear, or flash the BIOS (there's been a rash of new X570 Bios's lately anyway).

Thank you for your reply! I actually email ASUS, lets say what they will say, otherwise I am just going to take to the local shop. The PC works fine though, so maybe it is just an error.
