As KrÃ¤he said, check the mobo for physical damage. Unplug from power for 5 mins, and remove the battery. Try turning it on without cpu+ram+gpu.
It should beep, if it don't, try it with CPU only. It should beep.
If under both these conditions it doesn't beep, time for a new mobo.
Edit : the beeping is assuming you have some kind of mobo speaker connected. If you haven't (ie it doesn't usually beep when you turn it on) then don't worry about it not beeping. Just take everything out, clean and reseat it all. If still no go, new mobo.
The OP already made it clear that he's getting the beep, indicating that the mobo is POSTING fine. Physical damage would be a little far fetched as the OP didn't overclock at all, nor did he flash the BIOS. If the mobo were physically damaged then even the splash screen coming up would be a far cry.
EDIT: The computer IS POSTING, hence the beep. Freezing after the splash screen coming up has nothing to do with computer not POSTING. Speaker connected is irrelevant to the beep sound. The speaked transmits what the mobo sends it, which in this case is a POST beep.Edited by PunkX 1 - 10/8/11 at 2:48pm
