problem is-resetting the cmos can be really tricky. i had to do it after i went a little...overboard with my overclocking. the cmos resetter on my motherboard, it was this tiny, tiny little red pice of plastic, that i had to pull off of this tiny, tiny wire, then put it back on the tiny, tiny wire. i had to do this repeatedly while restarting my computer-so make sure that you REALLY need to reset the cmos before you do anything. of course, i wasn't getting anything from my computer, and i think that you can resett it from the start up screen by pressing F4 while the computer starts up-but remember, hardly any companies would admitt to selling you a faulty product. so the problem is probably with the graphics card, not yer motherboard.
