first thing I would do is reset the CMOS.
What motherboard do you have? that way I can look up as to where the jumper is.

Asus M4A88T-M/USB3<>PhenomII X4 965e<>Asus ENGTX460
Seagate 320GB/1TB<>Win7 Ulti 64Bit<>Antec900
SyncMaster 2220WM<>HyperX 16gb<>Cooler Master 600W

i guess there was something held in memory and it was cleared when u turned your computer off?? Or possibly the system overheated and the tempreature returned to normal when u turned the PC on again

Unplug the power to the system. Hold in the power button for 10 seconds (yes, with it unplugged) and then open the case and reset your CMOS/BIOS. Plug the power back in and turn the system on. It should function as normal. If it doesn't, it's remotely possible you fried something. I hope in your overclocking endeavors you weren't fiddling with power settings yet.
