Clear the CMOS. Pull the power cord and wait about 10 seconds for the filter capacitors to discharge. Then go through the CMOS reset procedure in the motherboard manual.

In most cases it involves moving a jumped for a few seconds and putting it back.

Assuming your motherboard and CPU are ok (should be) the system should boot right up after you plug it in again.
