New build not booting

Hi guys

I've just received some new gear;
MSI 990FXA GD65 motherboard
AMD Phenom II x4 975
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600mhz

I've installed these, with my old Geforce GTX285 and it isn't booting.
I know the graphics card(s) are fine, I've tried 2 in there.
The problem I'm having is that it isn't booting, showing no display. It does this for 20 or so seconds and then I get 1 really short high pitched beep.

I've tried the following;
Disconnected HDD's - Same error
Disconnect graphics - Continuous beeps
Disconnect ram - Continuous beeps.

The motherboard is showing all 8 lights on the cpu phase power (If that means anything)
And the power supply is fine, been using it the last 4 months in my old machine.

Any ideas?

Shell version 2.10
current running mode 1.1.2
Cannot find required map

Press Esc to skip startup.nsh, any other key to continue

Ignore/close/delete this.

I've cleared the CMOS and it seems to be working fine now! :)

Did you hit any of the buttons?

What happens when you skip it?
