What can i say? I have idiotic urges to destroy... destroy... well, i was playin counterstrike source with my glitchy system, some stuff in the background an windows xp home edition.
I exit the stuff, sound crashes, somewat normal, so i go to reinstall from old hd files... restore is off.... im also an idiot...and i dont hav driver cds... windows website is somewat unhelpful an i cant quite get the hd backups to work properly, so i exit, go to bios on restart...
an here il list all the things i got bored an played with.... this is where toppling things comes into play...

Bios now adjusted too: brought fsp to.... 167 i believe... 200% memory rate... and taht brought the htz or watever i think to like... 332... then i turned the hd slave from auto to manuel... didnt really touch anything in it, just that... :) and of course i adjusted external chaches from enabled to disabled... brought auto emergency shut off from disengaged to 70 degrees c... i also twitched like the vga palette snooop from disabled to enabled... and thats all i can really think of that i twitched (thats all :) )

;) So, with that in mind, and my stupidity in check, here is wat little i knwo about my system... 6800 nvidia vid card, some motherboard ;) ... ummm builtin audio i believe, i think there is a built in modem perhaps... uh, lan card, usb mouse, p2 keyboard...
oh yes, and i twitched the os/2 above 64 memory from disabled to enabled... im too curious... bad for my health an others... a 16x burner dvd i believ an 120 g harddriv or so... plus my moniter an dsl router via lan...
:tazz:
So if for some odd reason their are people left willing to help i would be rather somewat greatful... this is namely why i joined here... thanks. Have a Good Day.

Peace be with all of You

Get a hobby when you're bored, maybe stamp collecting or something equally non-destructive...
In short, don't XXXX with the bios if you don't know anything about it! ;)

Go back into the bios and select the option "load setup defaults" or something similar.
It should work again.
And than ask someone who knows what they are doing to tweak your bios settings.

Out of all the bios settings to tweak, you have picked some of the most dangerous ones. Well done!

OK, assuming you haven't terminally fried any hardware due to the FSB changes etc, then recovery is simple.
Disconnect the power to the system
Open up the case
Wear an antistatic band if you have one. If not, touch something metal to discharge your static & don't touch anything inside the case (eg mobo etc) that you don't need to.
Look for the flat round lithium battery on the mobo.
Very close by should be a jumper (small plastic rectangular cap). The pins the cap is sitting on should be marked on the mobo as clear_cmos or reset_cmos or similar. If not, then tell me what you do see.

If you find it, you will see there is the jumper with one bare pin next to it. The 2 pins under the jumper are pins 1+2, 3 is the bare one.
Remove the jumper & place it over pins 2+3. Leave this in place for about 10 secs or so, then return the jumper to where it came from (pins 1+2)

Reconnect power. The bios should now be reset to default values & boot up.

NB Do not move any jumpers apart from the one I've told you to. If you are in any doubt about which one to move, tell me first.

unplug your computer and pull the battery out of the motherboard for 2 minutes re-install battery plug in PC and boot...its call clearing the CMOS...you can do it via jumper but I dont have a clue what your is.

Your going to have to reset clock

edit: Samm beat me to it
