Very stupid moment. =//

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 
I wasn't sure if this is the right place to post this, but anyway...

I've just been in the bios setting on my new computer and changed the memory frequency to 1066 when it was 800, I also changed the CPU to 2.5GHz and the DDR2 OverVoltage control to +0.1. As well as that I changed the performance enhance from turbo to standard.

All very stupid, I know. Now the system won't boot.... I turn it on and all of the fans and lights come on fine but there's no signal on the monitor.

I've tried clearing the CMOS by removing the battery, changing the VGA lead to the monitor and reseating the graphics card. Anybody know what the problem is? And more importantly, how to fix it?

I know I was very stupid in the bios and trust me... i won't try overclocking again (well... unless I have a very long read of a good guide)

My specs:
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L iP35 Express
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 SLACR @ 2.40 GHz 1066MHz
Memory: 4GB (2x2GB) Corsair TwinX XMS2, DDR2 PC2-6400 (800)
HDD Capacity: 250GB Western Digital - SATA 2
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB
Power Supply: Corsair HX520 Modular
Case: Antec 900
Monitor: 22" Daewoo, 5ms response time

Thanks,
Ed

EDIT: nvm, misread

All I can say is try leaving it unplugged with the battery out over night. Worked for me before.

You should have left the memory at 800mhz. Make sure they're arent any reset CMOS jumpers on your board. an old ECS board of mine didnt care if the battery was out or in, still a blank screen but switching the jumper made it boot right up.

Yeah, i know i should of... it was a moment of madness.

There are two pins that in the manual it says you can put a jumper on them or touch them with a metal object for a few seconds while the computer is off. I don't have a jumper (or know what one is =P) but I've tried touching the pins with a metal screwdriver for a few seconds but no luck

you could try reseating the cpu...I'm pretty sure that will reset everything

i've tried reseating the cpu but nothing happened. I did notice that there is a grey solid forming on the top of the cpu and bottom of the retail heatsink. I didn't use any thermal paste cus I didn't think I needed to with the retail. Could this be a problem?

But wouldn't the screen still post even if this was the case?

The stock CPU heatsink will come with thermal paste applied to it, If it's been removed again or refitted NEW thermal paste should be applied! Arctic Silver 5 is the most widely used.

Jumpers are the little plastic connectors that jump certain pins on the motherboard. If you can take one off somewhere else and use it to jump the clear CMOS pins (NOTE: Remember where the jumper you used came from!!!!) With the power off leave the jumper on the Clear CMOS pins for about 30 mins, then remove the jumper and restart the system.

I've had a look over the mobo and can't find any jumpers which I can take and use on the CMOS pins. I'll try leaving the battery out overnight because in the mobo manual it says that to reset you can either use jumpers or remove the battery.

Im almost certain the jumpers used on cdroms and hds are the same. just borrow one of those.
post #10 of 73
Here's a link to a page showing a photo of a cmos jumper ( they come in a variety of colors........ it's the yellow thingy bridging two of three pins ). More than likely, there's a black one sitting on your board that just has to be moved over from pins 1 and 2 in order to bridge pins 2 and 3 . Do that for a few minutes ( with the power unplugged ), then move it back to the original position , reboot , and enter BIOS to reset your start-up settings.
