the bios in my evga p55 sli fails to initialize, the board was up and running so all the components are compatible. i took the board out of the case to clean the dust out of it and it hasn't ran since. tried booting with minimal configuration, cpu and memory only, tried removing the cmos battery for 10 minutes, can anyone think of anything i may be missing?

I recomend you read the stickeys on troubleshooting.
There are lots of things to go wrong. You need to start eliminitating some of them.

Try removing the cpu and check all the connections are clean. Remove the ram and also check connections for dust or other dirt. Do the same with videocard. Also check all power plugs for proper contact.
If none of these works, I'm afraid something must have got dammaged while taking the pc apart.
