Plz Help.
I was turning on my pc, and I'm nothing at overclocking, but I was stupid and I went into BIOS. I went to the overclocker, and my speed could be between 100 to 132. I set mine to 110, then I saved and left. Right after that, it was blank, the pc was on, but nothing happened. I turned the pc off, and the screen didn't turn on. Then I restarted it again, and this time the power came on in the monitor. However, it was still the same, it turned black and stayed. Please let me know what happened, and how I can fix this. My system parts are listed below. Also, i have no idea if this might be the problem, but i had a floppy in the drive, and i changed the order of booting from First-Floppy, Second-HDD0, Third-CD-ROM, to First-HDD0, Second-CD-ROM, and Third-Floppy. If you can, please tell me all you can and email me. My email address is QueBoy89@yahoo.com.

If you are sure it was a setting in your BIOS, locate the J7 jmper on you motherboard and remove the bridge cap. Leave it off for 1 minute and then replace it. This will set your BIOS back to the factory default settings. If you cannot find the jumper simple remove the motherboard battery. If you have not changed the battery within the last year it would not hurt to do it now. This too will set your motherboard back to the default settings.

Let us now if this does or does not work. Good luck.
