If you did something else in your BIOS besides overclocking and it won't boot.
Sometimes after exchanging components which won't work.

You need to clear the CMOS because sometimes you can't get to the BIOS to change the values manually to the default settings

most board manufacturers instruct you to clear cmos before you start the computer.
