My computer was working fine. Un hooked it to move, hooked it back up and all I get is a blank screen. I have tried swapping graphics cards, ram cards, monitors, I took the BIOS battery out and I still get nothing. The CPU light is on, on my motherboard so I was wondering if I anyone could tell me where to find a manual for the motherboard so that I could attempt to reset the board.

The manual won't help you unless you've changed some of the board jumpers. Need more system info, including the power supply.

Reseat the memory. It can pop out of the slot easily, causing a no post situation. Also check your case connections to the pin cluster with the power switch lead. You may have one on wrong. Here is the page for the manual download: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3/Crosshair_IV_F....

I've done all of this, I have actually swapped out memory sticks, graphics cards, battery, tried a diff slot for the graphics card. Still nothing, just the red solid CPU light and the fans blowing when powering on the computer. Also rechecked to make sure power supply was connected.

Guess I'll take it to the geek squad, dont have much of a choice at this point, dont have a clue.

I wouldn't waste money at the geek squad. Request an rma from asus. Just tell them it won't post. If the replacement board still doesn't work, then you can check craigslist for a local tech. Lots of them out of work; some will checkout your pc for $25.
