if you have not updated the bios, they have several, and alot of what is listed looks like possible causes for your situation. i would try this first, if you have the latest bios already,your board ahs a fail safe for the cpu temp, if it got to hot, you will have to reset the alarm. or just use the cmos jumper to clear the settings with the power cable unpluged. the thing to remember here, is if it does boot after you restore the default bios, you may have (had) a incorrect bios setting, your cpu is running to hot, not sure of what all you have tried, so will see what you say about the bios update.

You mentioned beep codes, what was it? Two short, one long, three short? The beeps make a pattern that represents an error code you can look up. Sometimes the problem is as simple as the ram or video card isn't seated properly.
For future reference, all caps hurts to read, don't do that again.
