    try bootin on one stick of mem, try taking out gfx card then put it back in, or you could always remove the battery for 5 secs

    Are you getting a display? For example, does your monitor kick on during 'bootup'?
    Do you have any boot disks?
    Is the hard drive functioning properly?

    I just went through this sort of problem the other day.

    i'v taken it all apart left it for a bit then tryed again
    no hard drivs on at this time as i don't get any thing on screen. ie boot info or anything.

    the monitor light comes on which means there is stuff going to it but its blank..

    I think what he means is,

    "Is the jumper back in its right place?"

    check the diagram as this has happened to me before

    Sounds like you've corrupt your BIOS. You need to find someone with an MSI K7N2G who is willing to hotflash your chip. The best option is to RMA it, if it's out of warranty you're out of luck i'm afraid :(

    Well if its nothing then something is probably dead :( Since the comp will ushally beeps if the settings arent correct or unbootable.

    So you might wanna rma or get a new board OR see if you can test your other componants on another mobo.
