Last week i decided to try and optimise my pc and increase my ram speed and by doing this i went into the bios of my computer and turned on d.o.c.p then changed the ram speed and clicked save and exit.
I then restarted my computer to refresh it all and make sure it was all working fine and as it turned back on neither my monitor or my keyboard was turning on with the computer as it normally would so i then decided to take out my cmos battery and put it back in to see if it could fix the problem and it did nothing.
Since then i have tried un plugging and plugging everything back in and still nothing has changed.
Any advice will be appreciated.

Sorry but you have post on a tech forum asking for help but have provided zero information about your computer or it`s hardware, this makes it impossible for anyone to even hazard a guess as to what is going on. 
 
Is the computer a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP, if a brand name, provide the model name or series number (not serial) if a custom build post the brand and model name or number for the CPU, MB, the RAM ( including the amount, number of sticks and speed ) add on video card if one is used and the PSU (power supply unit) providing these details will enable folk to better help you.

It is not as simple as that.

 

The following checks require the computer case to be opened so take the following safety precautions 1st, disconnect the power cord from the wall socket, press the case power button for twenty seconds or so to get rid of any residual charge in the system, take anti static precautions before touching anything inside, you can do this by touching a bare metal part of the case or PSU.

 

Remove the CMOS battery and leave it out for at least an hour, overnight is better.

 

Reseat the RAM and GPU.

 

Check internal connections are secure.

 

Put the CMOS battery back in.

 

Reassemble, connect the screen to the correct video port, the keyboard and the power cord.

 

Power up with your fingers crossed.

No follow up from the OP but being that they have marked their thread as solved there is no need to ask for an update.
