Alright so today I got curious about overclocking computers.. I found a guide and started following it. Well when I went into my BIOS and turned up one of the settings a notch (I believe it was CPU frequency?) and then did a save/reset. I got three beeps from the motherboard. So Im kinda stuck here because I can not access my bios to turn that back down. I tried switching out the ram which did nothing. Is there anyway I can fix this, maybe reset the bios settings without actually accessing the BIOS? I tried to remove the BIOS battery and disconnect the power supply for 20-30 minutes which didn't seem to do anything. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

P.S. No more overclocking for me!

Alright so I took the computer apart and put it all back together again, and tried a different CPU to see what would happen. Much to my surprise it booted up on the BIOS! Success? Not quite. I changed it back to where it was in the first place and did a save and exit. It asked me shut the computer off and place the jumpers back to default position. Apparently I placed the jumper in the wrong place when I reassembled it. I restarted it to make sure that wasn't a fluke, back to the BIOS again. So I took the jumper out and placed it the only other way it could have been, started it back up, same problem again, back to the beeping. And now I cannot get it to start back up in the bios with the jumper anymore.

Smiling Hobo,

can you give a little more information about the computer?
ie... Motherboard model, computer model, type of processor, memory type / size, any other distinguishing features.

Thanks,
