1)check that the cmos is not in the cleared position

2)While you are at it reset the cmos

3) Remove the battery and turn on the computer, what happens?

4) Can you enter bios? If so reset the bios and save

5) Check all connections (meaning reconnect everything)

6) If all the above fail RMA the motherboard
