This should give you a "CMOS setting bad" message (or similar).
In any case it should get you to the video...
Press Del to go into the BIOS and go through the settings.
I'm betting it's had a buscard video in it and the on-board video is disabled.
Umm, you should NEVER power up your rig with the jumper setting on clear CMOS, as it could damage your motherboard. Every rig I own has that stated in the manual. It will also void any warranty. All you need to do is set the jumper to clear CMOS, and then wait a few minutes and change it back. The motherboard battery is sufficient power to clear it. And you should NEVER attempt to change jumper settings while the motherboard is powered up.

Ok, then use plan B...

Power down the machine.
Take out the CMOS Battery
Turn it on
Once in the BIOS reinsert the battery.
Then do your settings

Asus boards are a little different. I've probably built 20 machines with the same motherboard I'm using and every time I had to do one of these two sequences to get it to boot properly the first time.

I know it's not recommended ...

That right there is pure satisfaction to me. Taking a near death(ok,it was dead) and bringing her back from the dead. "Its ALIVE...ITS ALIVE!"

Ok... I'm an adult, I can admit to a mistake

I should have erred on the side of precaution and recommended removing the battery instead. The whole point was to trigger a massive setup error that would force the BIOS back to defaults.

I'm just glad to see it working.

You're welcome and thank you for understanding. I've been at this a long time, too long in fact, and even with nearly 40 years in electronics I still find ways to make mistakes...

As the saying goes: "I never make the same mistake twice... I'm way too busy making new ones".

Don't you just love resurrecting the dead? The Messiah has nothing on us. LOL

By the way, which CPU fired up? I hope it was the new one.
