edit- it is a pain to replace it, like soxrock says. you will have to call tiger to get the replacement, see what they have to say. my guess is they will send another mobo.

1st boot device floppy
Then put in your windows cd and restart.
How did you get the system to boot into bios? What was the fix?

If you are using a ide hdd then have only the hdd and cdr drives installed on seperate cables and make sure both are set to master.
Make sure the ide cables are installed the right way

It sounds like you might be pretty new to some of this so please don't be offended if what I'm covering is "old hat". Lets just try one thing here first. Pull the power cord out of your machine and open up the case. There should be a little three pin socket near your battery labeled CMOS with a jumper covering two of the three pins. Lets find that and use a magnifying glass to confirm you have the correct header. Assuming thats a go, disconnect the 20 pin ATX power connector from your mother board itself. Leave it disconnected for the next step. Now - back to that little 3 pin header - remove the jumper from pins 1&2 and place it on pins 2&3. Give it a good 10 seconds and put it back on pins 1&2. Reconnect that 20 wire ATX power cable to your motherboard and make sure it snaps down in place (retention tab lock on one side). Now plug your power chord back in and try to fire up your machine while tapping on the delete key. If that gets you any action and you can get into your BIOS, set it for default values and F10 your way out. We can come back there later but let us know if this approach does anything for you.

I noticed you mentioned something about a jumper being moved etc which may or may not be relevant here but, are you using the rear speaker connections as opposed to the front panel audio? (ie the connection on the front of the case).
IF you're sound card does turn out to be installed correctly, then check the jumpers on the front panel audio. If you are using the rear speakers, then the front panel audio header (bottom left corner of mobo, header labelled CN24) must have two jumpers on it. One jumper across pins 5-6 and the other over pins 9-10.
Correctly jumpered it should look like this (but in a straighter line obviously!):
Without these 2 jumpers, the sound output is directed to the front audio header instead of being piped back to the speakers ports on the rear of the case.
