Okay, I overclocked my system last night, I went from 167something to 198. After I entered this, it shut down. When I restarted it, the monitor wasn't getting a signal from the computer. I looked up this problem on the internet, and it said that it was a common problem, that I needed to find the cpu jumper on the motherboard, or the key that restores the cpu speed on the keyboard. Does anyone know where this key is on the keyboard? Or where the jumper is on the motherboard? Please help!!!
my keyboard model: kb-0108 emachines keyboard

my motherboard model: AMD Athlon 64 2600 or 2700, I'm not sure which. Please help!

(I hope that this is the right subject to post this under)

Whoa, I hope you didn't fry anything.

OCing requires a lot of time to get everything right, raising the fsb 2-3 at a time. I should take at least 3-4 days of testing before you're finished...

general OCing info

To fix your current problem, you will need to reset your CMOS, which will require moving a jumper on your motherboard. Please post your motherboard model and manufacturer, you posted what CPU you use which doesn't really help. And do not start moving jumpers around without knowing absolutly for sure what they do, as this will cause a host of problems.
