Default OMFG my new board

Put a crappy overclocking setting into the bios, so unplugged the computer, and set the jumper to clear. My gf, who wanted to use the computer plugged her back in and powered her up.

Now I don't get anything. Board or bios dead now?

How long does it take to discharge the cmos? I pulled the battery, waitied 20 minutes still blank screen.

Remove the battery - wait 10 seconds - move the jumper do the position that clears the CMOS - wait a while and put it back to the normal pins and place the battery back in.

Make sure the computer isn't plugged in.

yep did it all, still nothing. I can pull the memory and/or video and get no error beeps. No boot, no nothing. With or without those.
