Default Restart BIOS???

is there any way to reset the bios manually without booting. i think mest up something big. my computer turns on, all fans come on, etc except that now my monitor acts as if it isnt plugged in.

removing the power from the computer and removing the CMOS battery would do...have you played with a setting in your BIOS?

yes i have.-------i dont remember exactly because its been about a week since my monitor stopped working. i think it was some sort of RAID periferals. there were like 15 different settings for PCI slots or something like that. it was under "Integrated Periferals" (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherb...ty/index04.htm)
in my bios. Im a new learner. i guess you have to make mistakes to learn. --- maybe my card is fried.
