How to reset a 680i sli mobo?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
well I was attempting my first overclock, so i decided to bump my q6600 fsbs from 1066-1090. First it started to freeze at the bios, so i reset, and now all its doing is turning on, not passing the boot with nothing on the screen. I tried hard resetting the cmos (taking out the jumper and putting it in 1 and 2 and then putting it back) and i tried taking out all the power and taking out the small battery. Nothing worked. Does anyone have any advice for me?

You see those two buttons on the bottom of the mobo? One is PWR and the other is RST. Then there is a CMOS jumper right directly under the battery, on the edge of the motherboard, switch the jumper, power on. Power off, switch jumper back. If those fail, hold the "insert" key while booting, then hit delete to get into the BIOS.

It should actually just go back to the default bios setting if it doesn't post successfully the 1st time, turn it off and on and wait a few mins it should just start with the default bios settings loaded.

yup the reset buttons are the best things that ever happened to me lol. after hitting the reset you should be able to get back into bios and make your necessary changes. good luck with your Overclock
