Default I Think I've Killed My Mobo!

Umm...

I'm not sure i remember the last thing i did to it, i think i was overclocking the cpu, then i ran 3dmark and i was with my girlfriend then my computer suddenly reset and now all the hard-drives + cd drives etc. start up but the monitor and keyboard dont turn on...

I tried a different graphics card, a different processor, ram in a different slot, and im stumped for any more ideas. I think my motherboard has a warrenty (please god) so i might head that way... I'll probably test it with a processor again, because if i start up the computer without a processor i get the same symtoms as if i have one in it (make sense?)

possibly the processor bed that messed up... ??

urgh, any input is very appriciated.

When the computer has power, the drives always power up and make a noise.

Try your other components in another machine if you can, To check theyre o.k.

clear the cmos before you retry anything.

But your hunch is probably 98% correct. Dead motherboard.

Usually the jumper is located near the battery on the motherboard (like a watch battery).

If its on pins 1-2 put it on 2-3 and retry. if no change, put it back on 1-2

Or the otherway around.

The reason you've never had to clear cmos is probably because you sit at home all day making stupid comments on forums? Get a life bluto, im experimenting with overclocking, its bound to go wrong at some point, im sorry if your brain has limited capabilities.
