Error Messages:


Hello I recently made a rediculously stupid error while finding a driver for my home-built PC. I, while on the internet, opened up my PC and removed the power from my cd/dvd drive. The system shut off and when I restarted it, it did not boot up correctly.
It ran through the memory test and the one item next to it.
After it read the memory frequency @ 200 Hz my PC froze. I tried to go through bios aswell and it starts to initialize but gets no further than that.  Anyone know any possible trouble shooting tequniques to use to isolate the problem?
I tried a couple, actually several, times restarting and to no surprise I zapped something. I have no idea what I need to replace. Does anyone have any idea as to what I may have overcharged? Any help would be great.

thanks,
Stewey

hi there are several tricks
first of all simple one just remove the processor from the mother board and try to insert new one you can borrow frm your friends
so that bios could recognize that
and you could set that and replace old one in slot
ok if you don't want to bother just short the battery
to clean up the bios
and try to cook your meal onces again says setting of bios
give responce wht you had done and wht the problem u got

Thanks a ton for the advice.  I will try your suggestion.  How would you suggest shorting my power supply?
thanks,

not shorting ur power supply, clearing the cmos. take out the lil silver 3V battery in your mother board, wait a couple of seconds and put it back
