    Disconnect it from the mains for a bit and jumper the bios again. Should come back to life after a bit... I have had the same problem in the past once or twice and it just meant leaving the system off completely for an hour or two.

    I have to back up ultim8um because when i had a 3ghz northwood i overclocked to 3.7 and was stable () then i tried higher and it just cut the power for a few hours but then pinged back into life later that evening my guess is that its a protection system in psu to try to keep you from being shocked for too long.
