does it beep at all when you turn it on?
if you've plugged in the onboard speaker, the BIOS should give you beeps to say what's going on. a single, short beep means all's okay.
multiple beeps means something is wrong.

i dont know if this would apply yo you, but on my mobo i got an optional "d bracket" that gives me codes in lights that can be read and it tells me what the problem is. i would suggest that you see if your mobo would support one of these. they are very cheap, like 10 bucks.

Did you reset CMOS as was suggested earlier?

BTW: This should be in "Troubleshooting" not OC/Modding...
