Unhappy think i broke my comp

k, so i used reforce to change all my resolutions frequencies to 100. My refresh rate is 75 mhz and i use a nvidia geforce FX5600 Ultra 256 MB and a plug and play monitor. Sure enough, i go to reboot and the green light on my monitor never comes up, as far as i can tell the computers not working at all. I switch off / on my monitor and green light comes up for a second and says "off mode in 5 seconds" then the light goes back to yellow. The lights on my keyboard wont even light up, and i triple checked to make sure everythings connected right. i cant access setup page cause nothing ever comes on screen, what can i do????!!!!

that's a puzzle, but i suggest that you try to use another monitor on your pc. and same thing with your monitor try it on another cpu. Its just a matter of trial and error thing and a little bit of experiment.

Refresh rate of 100Mhz is pretty high. You sure your monitor can take it? I would have expected it to test that refresh rate before allowing you to switch the computer on and off so you can't do anything. Erm. I don't know how to sort that! Sorry.

short your cmos jumper reset everything to original settings, that should clear it up.

what you have done is push your monitor too far.
