Did I Fry My Mobo?

I was swapping video cards and I forgot to turn off the PSU power switch.

When I try to boot the computer, there was no signal received from the monitor. All the fans are running but there is no boot or beeps coming from the mobo. The hard drive isn't reading.

I have pretty much accepted that I fried my mobo. My concern is with all other parts in my rig. Any experienced idiots out there that can help a fellow idiot out?

Thanks...

I'm guessing you tried putting the old video card back in and see if it boots?

I remember doing something like this on an Abit board. I pulled out the video card while it was still plugged. I couldn't get it to reboot. I unplugged the PSU and I pulled everything out (video card and RAM). Then I put everything back and tried to boot up again. Fortunately, I hadn't damaged anything and everything worked.

Is there anything I must do on the mobo to reset it?

Is there a battery on the board? If so, where is it?

Thanks

Hi if you check your manual that came with the board there should be a jumper to reset the Bios. You just move the jumper to the pin that isn't covered then back to original position and reset all your Bios settings. Hope it works out for you.
