Could he have damaged his Graphics card if he didn't lock the PCI-E Speed to 100 or whatever?

Okay...so the cmos clearing is pretty basic, cover it with a jumper and what not...which i know you have done.

Have you tried doing JUST this...as in not removing the battery as well?
If you haven't I would give that a try...put the jumper on...leave it for 30 seconds, take it off and try to start up the computer.
Make sure you unplug cable from wall too.

After trying that, if it doesn't work, just for solid measure try removing the battery for 1 minute then replacing it and attempting to start.

If neither of these things work (which I really am not expecting, but I want to be thorough) then remove your graphics card and any other peripheral devices (sound cards, firewire cards, etc) from your PCI slots...I want there to be nothing but the cpu ram and mobo going....along with the HDD. Try to boot and see if the fans at least calm down as if it is posting.

And I really doubt this...i mean i'm sure it COULD happen..but I doubt that is the issue at hand.

My 2 cents are that one of the parts in your build got messed up, but that's unlikely. What you should do is swap parts in. Use a different graphics card, different stick of RAM, or something like a different CPU.

remove the board from the case & place on a non conductive surface then only plug in the necessary h/w to post

cpu....
psu....

1 stick of ram......even better chuck an old one in if u have one
if u don't have any ram lying around u may want to borrow one or buy a cheapie
cos both sticks may have died so troubleshooting will be impossible

run the monitor off the onboard GPU ....if there isnt one chuck the card in also

reset cmos 1 last time (unplugged) then power up if this fails to post
(with different ram) ur board could be fried ....RMA could be on the horizon but only as a last resort

u say all this h/w is brand new ...if i was u i would find another machine i could test it all in ...(not easy but handy) then u can eliminate each component individually

total nightmare....... hope u get it sorted

Yeah...this is where I was planning on leading him, trying to run on the absolute bare minimum to see if we could weed out the problem piece.

I fear that the motherboard is fried, but that still doesn't necessarily solve the case of what fried it...I dealt with this with my 939 build....the hours of frustration, oh man...

Tried clearingn the CMOS again with the jumper on and the battery in but didn't do anything (screen still doesn't post).

I've already tried reassembling but I cannot test the individual components as the other components I have are old and don't fit in my new mobo.

Is the best bet to call a "PC doctor" and see if he an help? Anybody know how much he'll charge (roughly) for diagnosing the problem - once I know the problem, I'm sure I can fix i.

I recommend against calling a 'pc doctor.' They'll charge you an arm and a leg half the time, I would guess no less than 50$ and half the time they tell you something you already knew (well we discovered your motherboard is dead)...so I would advice against that until all else fails.

Did you try turning the system on with only the cpu, ram, and psu in the picture? Take out the graphics card, unplug the hard drive, and the cd drive(s) and try to turn the machine on. Once you try that come give me an update as far as did the fans go full blast forever or did they eventually calm down?

BTW...if they DO calm down, before you come update me, trying hooking up your harddrive and starting up again, then if they calm down come update me.
