NF7-S2 AMD ATHLON 2500+ Won't Boot

When I power up the system, nothing happens (i.e. no POST screen, absolutely nothing).  I have powered the system down, unplugged the power cord, removed the button battery, and moved the CMOS jumper to positions 2-3, left it for 5 minutes and then reversed this whole process.  What steps should I follow?

If the FSB is set to 400 it won't boot, Check the manual.

make sure you set the jumpers on your mobo correctly per you manual for the cpu & ram

exactly what happens when you pwr your system on with the case open?

make sure you're getting pwr - check pwr plugs & pwr connectors - do all the fans come on? do any LEDs come on (mobo or front panel)?

do you hear any beep error codes?  does anything show on the monitor?

I feel little silly.  While I was waiting for an answer, I continued to try things. After going through the clear CMOS routine and trying to boot again, the POST screen came up but the system would not respond to me hitting the DEL key to enter the BIOS so I could change the boot order.

It all of a sudden struck me that maybe I had a bad keyboard.  As I checked things out, I found that I had reversed the keyboard and mouse connections.  Once I corrected that, I was able to enter the BIOS, change the BOOT order, boot from CD and I was off and running.

Sorry to burrcm and Friar Tuk.
