changed BIOS settings..:((

I was trying to increase the effective core speed on my computer. I tried to do it from my bios and did many changes in the settings by enabling each core.. Auto Overclock. and things like that.

Now when i saved and exit the computer is not even showing the bios screen, in fact it is not showing anything there is no signal from the computer's VGA port..

My DVD drive is not closing as a cd broke in it.. and when booting my pc just tries to close it but it opens once again and that's what's happening till now..
Rebooted for 3 times to no use please help...

You need to reset your BIOS to its defaults. The easiest way to do this is to remove and replace the motherboard battery (CR2032). Unplug your system from the mains supply and carefully remove the aforementioned battery. Wait approximately 5 mins to ensure that the procedure is successful, and then replace the battery and plug your system back into the mains. Switch on, and your BIOS should be reset.

As for your other problem, if resetting the BIOS hasn't sorted it (unlikely), then you will need to buy a replacement drive. These are relatively cheap and easy to install. Just make sure that you get one with a matching interface (SATA/PATA) to the existing unit.

Start with disconnecting the power to the CD drive, and if it is shot replace it.

Next look on the motherboard for the "clear CMOS" jumper. It is a three pin jumper with a 2 pin block on it and is likely somewhere near the motherboard battery (but can be anywhere, if you can't find it, check the motherboard manual). Once found and with the computer off and the power cord removed, move the block from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then put it back. Then reconnect the pwoer cord and power up. This will reset the bios to the factory defaults, so will have to reset the date and time and any other custom settings you may have applies (don't redo the overclock settings).

We'll be waiting for you.

Just had a quick re-read of your post, and you state that a CD broke in the drive. In that case, you probably will need a replacement as it is quite possible that a fragment of the broken CD may well have damaged the laser lens assembly.

you can open the CD drive by sticking an opened paper-clip or whatever in that tiny hole at the front of the drive
- if you catch it right it will push open the CD drive bay - clear it of any broken debris

- it might still be OK....

LESSON ONE: Don't mess with over-clocking unless you're an expert..
