Read your mobo manual to see where the cmos jumper is.

Or take the battery out 10 minutes.

After that dont mess with it til you read something and you know what your doing. It is not a toy.

You probably didn't break anything. PC components are delicate but not THAT fragile.

how would i know if i damaged anything?how bout the cpu?

You won't really know if you've damaged anything unless it's obvious that a capacitor popped or the computer just won't turn on even after you reset the BIOS. After that the only way to know if you broke something is if your computer keeps giving you random errors.

Bottom line: OC'ing is not hard, but make sure you know what you're doing.

if i put on the bios update disk and try to reupdate, will that do the job?

Just reset your bios for now. Read your manual and reset the jumper, that should do the job. Don't bother updating the bios.

how do i reset the cmos jumper?
September 24, 2008 10:10:39 AM

i've read the manual. but I don't know how to do it..
it says

1. Turn off the AC power supply and connect pins 1 and 2 together using the
jumper cap.
2. Return the jumper setting to normal (pins 2 and
3. Together with the jumper cap).
4. Turn the AC power supply back on.

there are 3 pins.. and the jumper is connected to the 2 right pins..
do i need to switch it to the 2 left pins and power on?or switch it back to the 2 right pins and then power on?

Take out the jumper and connect it to the 2 left pins. Leave it there for like a minute, then take it put it back on the 2 right pins. Voila, Bios is resetted.
