Overclock failure

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I have a M3N78 Pro mobo with a Phenom 550 BE dual core. I ordered me a new processor to replace this one but figured I would try and do some very minor overclocking to it too improve performance in the meantime. I just increased my multiplier a bit in bios and tried to reboot. The computer beeps the lights on the inside come on as well as the fans and looks normal however my monitor just stays black and my mouse which at this point usually powers on doesnt seem to be as it has like 15 glowing buttons on it that are not lighting up same with the keyboard. I havent tried too much yet to fix the issue but I dont really know where to start. I heard of a Bios reset button but im not sure if my mobo has one or not. Any help would be appriciated! This was my first time trying to overclock anything kinda embarassing!redface.gif

That button should state "Clear CMOS", and it's either on the backplate of your mobo or somehwere on its front side. If you havent one then turn off your PSU, (I cant remember if you need to disconnect everything from your mobo) and take out the battery from your mobo. Wait for 5-10 minutes and then replace it. You're good to go!thumb.gif
