I recently cleared the CMOS on my athlon 2.8 xp/msi k7n-delta/1 gig ram system because it wouldn't boot (turned out it wouldn't boot with the ipod attached). Now its' been a long time before I've done anything with this system and I think I made a serious mistake... I set the FSB to 200 (for some reason I thought that's what it ran at). When the comp rebooted no screen came up/no beeps etc. Clearing the cmos doesn't seem to do anything, did I fry it?
Yeah it was a usb attached ipod, once I unplugged it it worked fine. I don't think it could be the video card/memory being seated unproperly because I never took them out :? Oh well... I got 2 years out of that system... I wish I didn't wreck it doing something so stupid though..
