I did a foolish thing after installing this board. It takes DDR2 memory and I tried to install some DDR memory hoping (instead of checking first) that it might be backward compatible. I don't even know how I got it to fit in the slot as the notches are different. Anyway, now it does not post up at all. No beeps...nothing. I bought a new stick of memory but still nothing. Assuming I shorted something out in the board, is there someplace toe get this repaired?

Yes, most likely you shorted out something on the module. You could try the "Repair Service" box on the right. Just enter your zip and it should throw up a list of service centers nearby. Just mention that you were referred by Fixya, and you may just get a discount :)

I understand how this must be driving you nuts. What I am going to suggest might sound stupid but I have to ask. After your assembly was finished (1st time around) did you check the 4-pin ATX + 12volt connector was correctly & fully inserted into the board? Pg. 2-28 section 6. in your manual? Did you add thermal grease to the CPU. A bad pin on the CPU will give you this symptom. I completly understand if you do not agree with this next part but it is extreamly important you go with it. Take the static bag your board was wrapped in & lay it on a table. Place a piece of foam on the static wrap & place your motherboard on the foam. You can use books instead. Connect your PSU, CPU heatsink & fan, Hd & video card & 1dimm to motherboard. Connect mouse, keyboard & monitor.
Check that PSU is set for 115v (small red slide switch near the off/on toggle switch). Plug in the PSU to outlet.
If the green led on board lights up you have power to board. This is known as a standby led. If it's not on, flip the toggle switch on the PSU to on.
Use a pen to short the power switch. This will turn on the board, no different than you pressing the power button on your case. Goto pg. 2-30 in your manual. Find PWRSW two pins. If the system starts up than somewhere durring install the board was shorted to the case.
What cpu do you use just now? Is it a pcie or agp card that you have? Is the ram ddr or ddr2? What you have ram/graphics wise will effect the upgrade path if you wish to continue using them. How much are you looking to spend?
Since you have a M2N board i think the issue is with the memory. I recall seeing loads of forums where people have issues with this board due t the fact that its unable to give sufficient power for DDR 800 memory to run fine specially if the machine is overclocked. I think a lot of people had success running DDR2 800 memory which worked on 1.8V but not any that needed any high voltages such as 2.0 or 2.1+.
Since you dont mention the memory type its hard to give a solid answer, but the solutions for this has been to flash your board with the latest bios, and also increase the voltage for the RAM to say 2.0V (Be warned this could damage your RAM unit, so try it at your own risk)
