Solved

I tried overclocking AMD 5800K APU now my system won't boot..

Kept everything standard. successfully OC'd to 4.2GHz then tried to set the CPU to 4.5GHz now my system freezes up at the Gigabyte loadup screen.

System if necessary-
A10 5800K
Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4
8GB 1600MHz RAM OC'd to 1866MHz
500W PSU


Please any help and advice would be appreciated.

    Remove the watch battery from the mobo to reset the CMOS.
    There is a possibility that your BIO's is currupted but the chances of that happening with newer mobos are slim, the BIOS is well protected and some mobos have up to 2 redundent BIOS's incase this happens.
  2. Never mind, removed CMOS bat for five mins and it bypassed the issue and allowed defaulting.
