I have recently been working with overclocking and testing out some clock speeds. I made some changes in the BIOS and then saved and reset the computer and the computer would not reboot. I am getting no display but everything powers up. I did go through the check list and tried out everything I could. I even went to a test bench and only essential components. I have tested my test graphics card and it works here are my specs.

MB: MSI 970A-G46
CPU: AMD FX-6100 3.3ghz
RAM: Patriot Viper Black 8GB (4gbx2) @ 1866Mhz "only testing with one"
PSU: CoolMax 600 watt ZU-600B
GPU: Test Card= Trident Blade 3D 8mb
Real Card= EVGA GTX 560 Ti 1GB

I have tested everything I can think of and I think that the Motheboard my be dead, but I'm not sure because the Power Phase LEDs on my MSI board are turning on like usual. I have cleared CMOS settings and pulled the battery on the board. On my test bench everything powers on but the BIOS never loads. I'm going to try re-installing the BIOS but I don't know if that will help. PLEASE HELP me out!!!! I have been running this rig for about 3 weeks now and this is the first problem I've hade like this. All and any help is appreciated.

Hi, When you pulled the battery, was the power supply off, or the power cord unplugged?

Yes I made sure that anytime I reset the CMOS or pulled the battery that the power cord was unplugged.
