To reset BIOS:

Turn machine off.

Press power button and press F-2 while booting. Navigate to entry reset to default settings (or similar). Confirm save and exit.

not working still a black screen on boot after holing F2 and Power when booting, I'm guessing the CPU could not handle turbo-boost and either failed or gets stuck because the settings are in the NVRAM, could that be it.

One could try flashing the BIOS via disk/CD/USB, DOS and the right files.
