depending on who makes the board. some motherboards have a jumper that you switch around
if all failed take the cmos battery out and place it on a metal object to drain the energy from it. replace it and you should be good to go

Surely not a good sign!
Resetting the bios may not help either...
GZ suggested pop the battery, sure try that.
But unless you can get it to POST, its probably not a Bios prob.
Good Luck! ChrsR.

Actually, I wouldn't try short circuiting anything...
If you pop the battery out, wait about 30 seconds and the CMOS should be cleared. Replace, restart.
And that's only if it doesn't have a CCMOS jumper (which it probably does)
