Disconnect all your hard drives from the motherboard. Then take out all but one stick of memory. Remove any pci cards.
Just leave in one stick of memory and the video card. Make sure all cables are still connected firmly.
I am sure that board has a clear cmos jumper. Follow the manuals procedure to clear cmos.
If that doesn't work try the other stick of memory and do it all again.
Reseat your video card.
Unplug the power cord and then push the power on button a few times before you clear cmos.
One of these things will probably get you going. If it doesn't I would bet your motherboard has fried itself. The only other possiblity could be that you didn't have the PCIE bus locked at 100. It usually defaults to auto and may have damaged the video card. It usually just takes a dump on the windows volume, but it has been also known to harm video cards.
