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 beep....so 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 spinning....so im not sure what to do now.

You'll need to find out what motherboard you have, or the manual for the motherborad (if you know what motherboard it is you can find the manual online). There is a jumper on your motherboard that you can short which will clear the CMOS and effectively reset your clock speed back to the default.

If you can't find that jumper you can also remove the PC battery (looks like a big watch battery) for 5-10 seconds. Make sure you unplug the computer all the way before removing the battery. It should boot right up and give you an CMOS error, just hit esc to continue, or f1 to go to setup.
