I don't know if the motherboard or cpu has been damaged or not, but if you want the motherboard to go back to it's default settings, you need to clear the CMOS. This can be done by taking the silver round watch type of battery off of your motherboard, wait at least a minute or so. I would press the power button with your computer UNPLUGGED, while you wait a few times to discharge any remaining power left on the motherboard.

After this, replace the battery, plug your computer back in, and press the power button. Did this work?

On most newer boards you can accomplish the same thing with a jumper that is usually near the cmos battery.

You would move the jumper to the off position and then wait a few minutes before placing back on.
A 10 to 15 minute wait is the average.
Or as Ferrari suggested push the power button for a while while unplugged. They accomplish the same thing.

Just giving a possible alternate method.
