Default Quick overclock question

I have a c2d 2.13 ghz and i overclocked the CPU clock ratio from 6x to 7x and the CPU host frequency from 200 mhz to 220 mhz

now nothing shows up on my monitor and my 8800GTS's fan makes a lot of noise...


so how do i reset this? i remember someone saying you could unplug comp and remove mobo battery for a certain amount of time.

you can pull the cmos pin and reset the bios. Does the post screen come up then the screen go blank or does it do nothing at all?

try locking your video card clock to 110, and your pci clock to 33.33mhz in your bios, that will help

Yeah, resetting CMOS is the only option here. It really depend on the motherboard. I have a Gigabyte motherboard too and usually, removing a jumper and shorting it out by plugging it in the other way, then reset back to it's original position clears CMOS. These days, you don't have to take out the battery unless it's dead.

But give us the motherboard number so we can see about finding a manual. It has got to be in there. So you can't even access the BIOS setup screen? Man, got to clear thta CMOS.
