Did I just fry the CPU?

I was looking through some messageboard posts of some advice people gave on OC an XP2100+. I read this guy telling another to change VCore to 1.75V, VDIMM to 2.8-2.9V and the mem timings to 2.5-3-3-7 at 11X200. I tried that on an MSI K7N2G motherboard (with onboard video) and the thing wouldn't post. Ok, so I went to clear the CMOS using the jumper...same thing, I get no video and the thing won't post. I try again, this time turning on the monitor while I turn on the Computer. It says "Video Cable Connected?" which it is. I take the battery out and put it back in...no go. Is the CPU fried or what? Oh crap I hope not. BTW, I've got this thing up to 2700+ speeds without tampering with the voltage and everytime I seem to try to change voltage, the Computer won't post, just this time it wouldn't start up again at all! PLEASE HELP!

Forgot to mention that the Computer is not dead. I get the CDROM to light up, the Front Panel LEDS light up, the LAN LEDs are working the fans come on, I just get no video. So I don't think it's the motherboard..

ok for a start give us your full system specs then maybe we can help.
it may be your cpu.. your ram.. your mobo..
if possible strip everything out of your system except 1 hdd 1 stick of ram the cpu and graphics. if you have 1 use a pci graphics card. if you have spare ram try that.
or it could be your psu. give is your system so we can make some more educated guesses.....;

That's the system specs. The computer would boot up fine until then. I'll see in the morning if it will boot, I left the battery out of the motherboard for it to reset...we'll see.

Try putting jumper 10 to safe mode and restarting your computer. Thats what the manual says thats what you should do. Its in the section just after it says how to clear the bios. Hope it works

if you ran your system at 11x200 did you have the ram running at 200 as well? your ram is only rated at 166 so you may have fried that.. try the jumper thing that the other guy suggested.. that seems the first course of action. if not try new ram

Yes it did, it fixed it. I moved the FSB back to 133 afterward and it boots up just fine. Thanks again for the help, now i know the ram can't make it to 200MHz...or maybe it's because the motherboard isn't rev 2.0 and that's why the FSB couldn't go that high...probably a mixture of the two. Anyways, thanks for the help!
