was messing about in the bios the other day and tried to be clever and think i done something to the overclocking part only slightly.
but when it restarted it poered up but there was no beep and nothing on the screen, reset the cmos but just the same.

what have i done

Can you get it to start in Safe Mode (keep tapping F8 on start-up), if so you could try a System Restore back to before you got itchy fingers.

sounds as if you have blown the CPU

any signs of life at all when you switch on?

checked the obvious?
socket on
PSU switch if fitted

  shauny36 11:38 28 Dec 08

psu seems to be working, drives are opening and fans are working.

  shauny36 12:10 29 Dec 08

If you can't get into the bios try taking out the motherboard battery and move the jumper to the bios reset pins. Move jumper back afterwards and replace battery. This should have reset bios to original default settings and undo any changes that you made. Then try restating system.
