I really screwed up, I tried overclocking on an old Pentium 4 motherboard. Now it just beeps. I tried removing battery, but it didn't help. I'm thinking there is maybe a jumper setting. I don't know exactly what model it is. It has a Pentium 4 socket 478. FSB 533. And I know the motherboard- chipset is limited to 533 as well.. I changed a setting from 133 to 166. I think it was the memory. It gives a long beep then every few seconds it beeps again. I could take a pic of the system if that would help.

Thanks Jack,

I got it, there was a jumper next to the battery, there are 3 pins, the jumper goes on 2 of them. I just moved jumper over one notch, then back. I then plugged the computer back in, and voila it works. I was really worried, because it;s not my computer. Really it's a piece of junk and I didn't want to have to replace it. I figured I would post this , in case somebody else runs into this problem.

Usually you should short the jumpers when your have unplug the power from the wall and have the battery removed, the jumpers are set to pin 1-2 and to reset bios you have to put them on pins 2-3 and they are usually located near your battery (not always) Leave the jumpers in pins 2-3 for a minimum of 30 seconds to be certain. After put your jumper back in pins 1-2 put back the battery and reboot.

Hopefully this will reset your bios to it's default settings.
