Ok I've had that problem before and I'm sure plenty of others have as well. This is what I would do. Unplug everything take your motherboard out of your case if it's on a removable tray that's even better. Make sure the motherboard isn't grounding out on the tray. Next take out the CMOS battery. Now just plug in the power supply for the motherboard and then plug in a video card. Now try to boot up and then let us know what happens. If that doesn’t work reseat your processor. If you still don't get any beeps after all that I would RMA the board, because at this point you are at the least possible config to get noises and you have reset the CMOS. Make sure if there is a CMOS reset jumper that you have that in the right position as well.

Thanks, this is what I will try tonight when I get home.

You probably knocked something like one of those tiny voltage regulators off the board. Knocked it on a screw mount or something I bet. Happened to me with three boards in a row. So easy to do, no way to fix it.

Nahh man it's my retarded Antec 900 case. It doesn't have a mobo tray and it's hard to get a mobo in without taking EVERYTHING else out
