having had a lot of experience assembling desktops over the years, i believe i can help u with your problem. (I know i am really late, but i just viewed this thread, SORRY). For starters, there is nothing wrong with your motherboard. It is either your power supply (PSU), or your ATX case. When these new motherboards are NOT properly GROUNDED, the bios does not boot and therefore the system does not start. However, the fans do run and the power is sent to hard disks, cd roms, or anything which relies on external power from the PSU. You can say its a safety feature. Following is a list that you can follow to solve this issue:
To begin with, make sure all the POWER connections are properly made.
Secondly, make sure the back of your motherboard (the metal spikes) does not touch the metal of ur ATX case. this trips the motherboard, and therefore it does not start. In order to resolve this, you can loosen the screws which attach the motherboard to your atx case.
Thirdly, insure that your PSU is working properly and that you are using a power cord with a ground or earth extension. You can also find equipment that can measure your PSU performance (sort of like a voltmeter or an ammeter)
If all the above fails and you really want to know if your motherboard is working and wanna fix this issue, you will have to do it the HARD way(or ask someone who is a professional). THIS PROCEDURE IS RISKY...so be CAREFUL.
1. Carefully remove everything from your motherboard.
2. Remove motherboard from your ATX Case.
3. Remove power supply unit (PSU) from your ATX case
4. Place your motherboard and PSU on a wooden cardboard or a table, facing up
5. Install the Memory (ram, make sure u install it in the correct DIMM, follow the motherboard Manual)
6. Install the CPU and its fan
7. Place the hard disk flat on your table/cardboard and make the IDE or SATA connections (whichever is applicable)
8. Carefully Install the GRAPHICS CARD, (THIS PROCEDURE IS WAAAAY EASIER IF THE GRAPHICS IS BUILT-IN, but unfortunately for you this is not the case)
9. Make ALL the neccessary power connection from the PSU to all the various components of the motherboard, internal and/or external
10. Connect the Keyboard and Mouse
11. Connect the POWER ON/OFF, HDD LED, POWER LED, and RESTART cables from ur case...hopefully they will reach your motherboard :)
12. Connect your power cable to the PSU and then to your power socket
13. CROSS YOUR FINGERS AND PRAY...
SWITCH THE THING ON....
if you properly made all the connections and followed my instructions, the system should have work...
In short, I have had this problem numerous times, and i mostly fixed it by loosening the motherboard from the ATX case...

The boot process is handled by the bios /everything else will work it just wont boot you can get a new bios chip already flashed and replace yours
