Angry ecs mobo no video please help!

i just got an ecs nforce3-a mobo (socket 751, 1x agp 8x, 5x pci); a athlon 3000+ 64-bit; and a matrox perhelia 128 anong other things. to keep it short, i hooked everything up, i have built quite a few pc's so i'm perty darn sure that everything was hooked up right. when i turned it on, i didn't get any video, non, not even the bios or a blinking line or anything. i tried it again today and it worked fine, but when i restarted it, i had the same problem. i've tried it with several video cards, some pci, some agp, but same problem. when i trien the matrox card i got a long beep followed by two short beeps, when i tried it with the pci card, i got one short beep. i know that the cpu, ram, drives, and whatnot all work, and the matrox card worked in another pc, but it was garbled durring bootup. please help, this is really ticking me off as i just spent a heap of cash for these new non-working parts. i thank any kind nerds that hear my plea...thanks

Reset your bios. See my sticky. Reseat all cards and RAM before you start the rest. Post results please.
