I have a duron 1.8 ghz. I set the FSB to 165 from 135, and saved the settings. From then on I got no video. No beeps, fans spins, harddrive spins, cpu fan spin, everything. But no video, no "NO SIGNAL" message, nothing. Any help?

Hi,

Clear the cmos using the jumper on the motherboard, your manual will show you the location and proceedure. You should get your video back

Then enter bios and load the defaults this will restore the settings back to what they were.

The reason this happened is because you overclocked the system by raising the fsb beyond what the system could handle.

If you want to overclock raise the fsb in small steps till the computer will not boot, then back off a little, be prepaired to clear the cmos again as this is trial and error. Also just because the computer will boot to windows when overclocking does not mean its 100% stable so check to be sure, if there are problems lower the fsb.

You may need better cooling to OC so monitor those temps.

This is only the basics there are more settings that could be changed to get it to run at higher fsb

Thanks, I cleared the CMOS, but still no video. I then took out the video card I had, and put in an FX5700LE (pci) and it booted up fine. I'm getting some BSODs... but it's working okay.

Ok you may have to run drivercleaner to clean up the old video drivers that are creating the BSOD's.
