HUGE problem, killed my computer??? please help !!!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi, In need of urgent help asap

I know its probably my own fault, but i need help

Just changed my ram frequency, and now, computer boots, but my screen isnt picking up the computer....

And its not booting !!!!

Brand new 1 month old computer, gtx480 gpu, i7 950 cpu, hynix 6gb ddr3 ram


If its helpful, as i entered BIOS the last time, before it died,

It said 4096mb ram (normaly reads 6xxx)

So maybe i fried some ram ?

PLEASE HELP ME any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

Have you tried resetting the CMOS battery, or leaving the computer unlplugged for 1hour or so.
If it still reads only 4GB RAM when you may have fried the RAM.

Good luck,
Best regards.

there should be a button in the back of the computer. or you can take out the small circular battery inside the motherboard while psu is turned off.

Look on the motherboard for a battery that looks like this:


Take that out for about 30minutes to 1hour then put it back in.

Something about the whole
i7 950/GTX480 and "I havent been inside my computer in 3 years" makes me laugh.

But yes, once you figure out whats actually inside your computer or how long you have had it reset the CMOS.
