    As far as I know the only jumper you NEED to have is the power switch itself. Of course if you don't connect the Reset cable to it's pins your reset button (if you have one) won't function but the computer will. If you don't connect the HDD LED cable, your red light won't flash when the hard drive accesses (assuming you have such a light), but the computer will still work. And the if the Power LED is not connected you will not have a power light (again, assuming your case has one) won't work, but again, the computer will.

    With that said, the power switch uses jumpers 6 & 8 of JFP1

vacuums can cause static electricity. this may have damaged your motherboard in some way. you have to use a special anti-static vacuum when cleaning electronics.

I can't see the BIOS screen and this didn't check CMOS. i can't hear no beep.

Reverse the two-pins connecting the PC Speaker to the motherboard.
This can make any "beep" much louder.

Try a different power-supply, to ensure that your current power-supply is NOT the problem.

Remove the RAM and the video-card, then start it up.
It *should* "beep" to complain about the lack of RAM and the lack of video. If not, and the power-supply is OK, then the motherboard has its own problems.

Beep sounds and their meaning

Hi All PC do what is called a POST a Power On Self Test and emit different beeps according to the make and model of the BIOS loaded. You can check out what they mean for different BIOSes here This site lists the different post codes etc by the different bioses. So you will need to know what BIOS your PC is running just check the black screen at starup before any windows info comes up and look for something like AMIBIOS or AWARD etc, you can pause the screen so that you can read it more easily by pressing the pause button on your keyboard, this is normally the last key on the top row on the right. Hope that helps
