Question about MSI KT4 Ultra (MS-6590-010) Motherboard
Hey there i have a msi kt4 ultra mainboard, i overclocked my cpu and now my pc does nothing, no loading, no nothing. When i power it on tower powers but black screen. have already tried moving the pin cap to reset the cmos, but nothing, and removed the internal battery, only for about 30 seconds, and it didnt do anything. any suggestions you can get me would be great, i can believe anything got fired from my mods, just need a way to rest set the bios to default. Thank you in advance.
You'll need to remove the battery for longer that 30 seconds. I say this as someone who did exactly what you did, with exactly the same result. I was also pretty sure I hadn't fried the CPU, but was baffled that CMOS reset wasn't working.
Give it an hour or two, or better yet, leave the battery out overnight. Turns out that the newest type ROM chips will hold a charge on their own for quite awhile, almost like capacitors. Let everything discharge, then when you restart, it will be with the factory defaults.
