Idk if your problem is solved but this is my repair solution.
Turn your computer off... wait till its shut down completely. On your motherboard theres a battery. Unplug thw plug from you power supply and take the battery out for two min. Put the battery back and plug in your power supply cord and whilebyour turning on you pc hold and press insert. Then press delete couple times till your in your bios. Then click to load diffault settings and there you go.

Tips: if you have no idea on how to oc a cpu or vga or memmory. Please dont oc anything. And never copy anyone else specs unless you have the same spec on your rig. Thank you for reading. Any questions ask away.. hope it helps.

His problem was solved if you read his last post (OLD thread anyways).

Also, DON'T EVER copy someone elses settings even if they DO have the SAME hardware as you, as each CPU OCs differently.

Well for one thing dump that fan asap..they are just the pits...if you want to O/C get a decent air cooler like a 120 true Xtreme or Noctura D12? 14 or
get a Corsair H70...I have one on a i7 930 CPU O/C to 3.8ghz can reach and run on 4ghz but I like to run em a little lower than max and besides at 4 it underclocks my ram.
The H70 for what it is, is a good little W/Cooling loop and can be easily modified to run cooler again..google H70 mod...for details

Theres a little yellow pin on the board (for intel) that says CMOS reset, its a jumper. pull that and move it over one posistion. that will reset you sir.

battery trick USUALLY works, i had one computer that i had to pull the battery out and leave it for almost an entire day before it made a difference. also, if you do the battery trick you need to unplug your power supply and i would suggest that
1) you turn your rig off
2) you unplug your supply
3) you remove the battery
4) press and hold your power supply for like 10-20 secs to discharge any capacitors.
5) leave it for ~5 mins usually will be sure that it is done.

or if you can find your CMOS or BIOS RESET jumper use that and save a LOT of time.
