Dead computer...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I was overclocking my pc last night and I guess I overclocked it to much and the computer kept restarting itself. After that I turned it on and off and kept doing it. So I switched the power button on the power supply and pressed the power button on the pc to clear the cmos. After that when I tried turning it on it won't. What can it be? I already tried another power supply so that's not it. My mouse seems to be getting power but when I try to turn it on its like dead lol. Broke my mobo?!?!

I don't believe switching the power buttons clears the cmos. You should do that manually with the jumper or the clear cmos button on your board if it has one.

Easy way is to power off the system turn off PSU and pop out the battery on your mobo for a minute.

Should be instant it's all volatile memory so no power = reset.

I don't think you are supposed to turn it on with the jumper in the clear cmos position. I had an older motherboard that warned you would damage it by powering the machine up with the jumper in the clear cmos position.

CLRCMOS1 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short pin2 and pin3
on CLRCMOS1 for 5 seconds. However, please do not clear the CMOS right
after you update the BIOS. If you need to clear the CMOS when you just finish
updating the BIOS, you must boot up the system first, and then shut it down
before you do the clear-CMOS action.

The above is from your motherboard's manual.
