I attempted to overclock my system last night and all seemed well until i adjusted the voltage settings in the cmos and rebooted, now everything starts, as in hdd's cpu fan, cd-roms etc but nothing at all appears on the screen,can any one help me to get back into the cmos settings to change back to default settings?

If you dont want to do it that way with the cmos battery and risk breaking off the metal prong you can just clear the cmos jumper.
You just unplug the pc and pull off the jumper then move it up 1 pin up or down depending on your motherboard. Example if the jumper is on the top 2 pins pull it off and put on the lower 2 pins, then put the jumper back where it was to begin with then plug up your pc and your good to go. The cmos jumper pins have 3 pins and the jumper that goes on the pins is 2 slotted.

Yeah i know this sounds more complicated but it might save the cmos battery metal prong.

Hope you get your problem fixed!
