I think I screwed up...bad - Page 2

No dice. Now the monitor comes on (sometimes) but it just stays on a black screen with a " - " in the upper right-hand corner. I left the battery out for a good 15 minutes. Should I try again but leave it out longer?

Leave it the whole night as a last resort. If that doesn't fix it, some hardware must be damaged. I suspect that its either the CPU or motherboard.

Wow it could be damaged already? I would understand if I just jumped to over 3.0 and added a lot of voltage but I didnt add any just a little at a time to the cpu speed. This cpu and this board is supposedly very good for OC'ing.

ok take out your cmos battery also unplug your power supply and cycle the on/off switch acouple of times with it unplugged, leave it off and find the cmos jumper (one of those little jumper pins not sure where its at on that board but im sure it has one and it should be listed inthe manual) and switch that jumper over to the clear cmos setting

this should clear it ina cuople of minutes but leav it like that for 10 to 20 minutes

place the jumper back in the default position, put your battery back in, plug your power supply back in turn it on and fire it up

I'm another victim of over-zealous clocking

When my system did this, it was due the RAM running too fast. I think you were running your CPU @ 9x311 ? If so then your 800 RAM should have not been the issue...

Seems as though things should be running smoothly... Good luck when you try again.

Disconnect all your hard drives from the motherboard. Then take out all but one stick of memory. Remove any pci cards.

Just leave in one stick of memory and the video card. Make sure all cables are still connected firmly.

I am sure that board has a clear cmos jumper. Follow the manuals procedure to clear cmos.

If that doesn't work try the other stick of memory and do it all again.

Reseat your video card.

Unplug the power cord and then push the power on button a few times before you clear cmos.

One of these things will probably get you going. If it doesn't I would bet your motherboard has fried itself. The only other possiblity could be that you didn't have the PCIE bus locked at 100. It usually defaults to auto and may have damaged the video card. It usually just takes a dump on the windows volume, but it has been also known to harm video cards.

I hope it works for him, but I have had bad experiences with all INTEL boards. I've got one that is garden art (tried to tweek the memory timings and it killed itself) and another that is a science experiment. I wont ever buy another one.

It does have a bios jumper but the manual doesnt say anything about clearing cmos. The jumper set in pins 1 and 2 is default, 2 and 3 says its for clearing passwords, and no jumper is for recovering bios from a recovery diskette in the event of a failed bios update.

I have to go to work now but I'll report back after I try your other suggestions. Thanks for your help.
