I have recently built a computer and the mobo i used was an MSI Z87-G43. This mobo comes with an option in the bios to use an OC GENIE. Out of curiosity i pressed it to see what would happen. The computer reset but now it won't boot, it stays on a black screen with a list of components connected to the board and at the bottom it says
"Press DEL key to enter setup Menu, F11 to enter boot menu"
However when i press either of these buttons nothing happens it just sits on the same black screen. nothing at all happens, keyboard is working fine.
no matter how many times i reboot, the same thing happens.
The worrying part is i can't even access my BIOS to turn the damn thing off! it's really frustrating.
You guys have any idea what i have done!?

Appreciate any help.
Andrew.

Thanks but I actually don't know how to do that, complete noob here first build. You think this will work definitely? Any idea how to exactly do that with this mobo?

It either has a button or a jumper, check your manual but removing the motherboard battery for a few seconds with the computer unplugged does the same. Always done with power off!

My manual said it had a jumper but there was only 4 blank pins in the area it mentioned so I just took the battery out as you said. Worked perfectly. Back to square one now but at least i have a working computer again. Thanks alot!
