MOTHERBOARD FRIED HELP!!!

I tried messing around with the voltage on my ati radeon 5850 and my computer started rebooting again and again on it's own. I put radeon 5770 to see if the problem was the gpu but that card didn't change anything. I then uninstalled the gpu driver and it seemed to work fine until I reinstalled the driver and it started all over again. This problem only happened after I tried to overclock the gpu but I figured if I uninstalled the driver along with all folders it would be fine, but now even without the driver installed the computer just freezen at the start menu.

MY BUILD-

Intel i-5
Gigabyte p55m ud4 ver.1.0
Gskill 2x2 1600's
OCZ 750w psu
Ati Radeon 5850

  1. I would reinstall windows. You may have lost a critical file, causing the rebooting. And use whatever original driver worked with your Gpu. Sometimes a newer driver causes problems. I always start with the original driver cd. If it works ok, don't update the driver.
  2. ^+1
    i never update my driver if the one which came with the CD is work... :)
