Can changing memory timings stop my machine from POST?

Yes. Find the CMOS reset on the board and reset it. You should POST fine after that.

If you are thinking of adjusting timings do it a little at a time

Yea, Ive done it before

You can use the reset/clear CMOS jumper or just yank out the battery while the PSU is off, keep the battery out for a few seconds then put it back in and boot up.

Stupid RAM timings, they will be the death of me

Thanks for the quick reply. Well my computer done nothing after the bios settings where changed. I turned the machine on and off and a message came up saying that the overcloak had failed. hit F1 to go back to bios. or something like that so I set them back to auto. I tried 2,2,2,5 absolute min i could have hoped for i think. So as u say ill take em down slowly n do some benchmarks. Ta again
