Default I'm boned

I just tried stepping up the voltage on my cpu by .025 volts and now my computer won't start up. All the fans are on but absolutely no video output. Even tried switching monitors. I have a NFORCE 9M-A motherboard with a 64 x2 6000+ dual core and a GEFORCE 9400 graphics card and 4 kids.

unplug your computer then open up the case. You will see a little watch battery (known as teh CMOS battery) take it out and leave it sit for a few minutes. Put the battery back in and boot up. The settings should have reset for BIOS. If not, take it out again and wait an hour or so. If it still doesn't work something might have fried.
