I messed up with the BIOS, and after that i got a black screen and a long beeping sound, so i reset the BIOS by removing the battery for atleast 5 mins and putting it back, it worked the computer was able to turn on and function but it became very laggy and slow, even the mouse is lagging too. and it became worse when i perform checkdisk and defragment the disks, can anyone help me to fix this problem please.

I tried to overclock it,

I removed the battery of the motherboard to reset the BIOS settings and it was able to turn on but it was kinda laggy, so i performed a checkdisk and defragment after that the pc became more laggy,

Please post a Speccy Snapshot so we can see what hardware you are running and so we can see any initial hardware issues.

When you attempted the overclock...how did the system respond? Did it boot? Were there onscreen error messages?

FWIW: Continuous beeping may generally indicate a RAM problem...but I cannot find the beep codes for Foxconn motherboards.

I tried to remove the RAM and put it on another slot, i also removed the motherboard battery and put it back after a few mins, after that computer was able to boot, but its still slow, i also discovered that my C:\ Drive is almost full, just some mbs left. i tried deleting and uninstalling unused programs but its not affecting the size of disk please help, thanks

The slowness is probably directly related to the lack of appropriate free space on the Windows partition.

Uninstalling apps...rarely provides notable free free...while moving vided, graphics, and music files from the Windows partition...will.

I already did some of those things, can you recommend a program that can divide the partition of disk? because my D drive has still lots of space.
