Reset the CMOS and BIOS. If you can get into the BIOS, find the PC health section and you can disable the warning there.

Recheck all the jumpers on the motherboard and make sure they are in the correct positions according to the motherboard manual.

When you cleared the CMOS, did you disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet before doing so?

How long had it been unplugged for? I guess it is possible that the board is starting to go.

That's weird that you're getting a chassis intrusion error. Check make sure that you didn't accidentally connect a fan to a wrong header.
