hey i'm on a:
Windows XP Pro.
My Comp. wont boot up after i overclocked
it running on a:
AMD Athlon XP 2200+ (1.8ghz/ 13.5*133)
Video Card is a NVidia GeForce 4 MX Integrated 64mb
448mb of RAM Memory
a Mad Dog MD-400SCPS 400W PSU
i don't know much about the mobo but i know for sure its a Nforce2
i have a 40gb hard drive (not sure brand maybe Maxtor)
i've got a Sony DVD player Drive in their
also a Plextor CD-RW Burner

so heres the situation...i decided to overclock the amd so to a desired 2ghz so i did it at increments first i did 1.84ghz, then 1.9ghz, than 1.95 and everything was all well , the pc health status showed temp of 42 celcius i also increased the cpu voltage to 1.8V and then increased it to 2ghz and so i saved the changes and then it wouldnt re boot so i shut of the comp. and tried turining it on again but all there is a black blank screen, the PC didnt even i opened up the case and it appeared everything was working fine...the cd drives i was able to open and close, and the power supply seems fine, and the CPU fan was im not sure what  to do now.

Try this un hook your pc take out the cmos batt should put any settings back to Factory not sure on how long it takes but give it 30 mins and be sure to discharge the power it may take longer to reset take out the memory also while your at it to clear the cache.
