MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR problem

I was starting to o/c my K7N2 Delta-ILSR last night. When I started to get a bit of unstability, I decided to leave the FSB where it is and lower the multiplier (which I now regret doing). Then I told the computer to save and exit from BIOS, that was the last time I saw anything on the monitor. It saved and exited, but wouldn't boot. There aren't any beeps and no signal coming out of my vid card. MSI's D-Bracket is stuck at 3-4 lit (Decompressing BIOS image to RAM for fast booting). Here is what I've tried so far:

- RAM; tried slots 1-3, 2-3, 1-2, only one on slots 1, 2, and 3. Nothing worked
- Jumpers; I've tried clearing the CMOS (JBAT1), tried changing FSB from 133 User mode to 100 safe mode (J10), and tried the CPU FSB Frequency Jumper open and shorted (J11). Tried every possible combination with the jumpers, still won't boot.
- Components; first I started with leaving all my components connected. No boot. Then I started removing things I that aren't needed to boot (NIC and all them stuff). Still no boot. I've even tried taking everything out and leaving only PSU, mobo, and processor (no RAM or vid card). Still no boot and no beeps. D-Bracket showed same thing (leds 1-2 red, 3-4 green). Tried with ram and vid card next, no change.

I'm stumped now, anyone here have any idea what happened?

Its working now. :smile: It turns out I was just impatient. When I tried clearing the CMOS, I just changed the jumper and left the power cord attached, waited about 15 secs and put it back. That didn't clear the CMOS. :eek:  Now I changed the jumper, then I removed the power cord, pressed to power button to clear out what was left in the PSU, waited 5 mins, put jumper back then power cord back and it booted with a cleared BIOS. So its back to normal.
