Question about Gigabyte GA-8SIMLH Motherboard
My friend slightly overclocked my pc and now wont boot or give me a pic on monitor how do i reset bios to give me a picture again
1) Unplug from power.
Press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of 10 seconds.
Do this same procedure two more times.
Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
This is supposed to clear CMOS Error Codes, and reset BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
Have to 'slap it around a little bit'.
Power unplugged, Anti-Static Precautions -> FOLLOWED, remove the CMOS battery.
Do the press the Power On button thing, above.
Reinstall CMOS battery.
(Remember; the Positive ( + ) side ALWAYS goes UP)
Plug back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.
Turn the computer on, enter BIOS Setup.
AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the DELete key.
You may hear beeps. These are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that are creating them. Ignore the beeps.
The first menu you will see when you enter BIOS Setup, is the Main menu.
On the right side you will see - Load Fail-Safe Defaults
Use the Down Arrow key until Load fail-Safe Defaults is highlighted.
Press the Enter key.
(You MAY have to use the Right Arrow key, then the Down Arrow key)
Press F10 to Save.
Then use the Right or Left Arrow key, and highlight Y, or Yes.
Press the Enter key.
Your computer should restart, and Fail-Safe Defaults will be loaded.
Your computer should be back to Day 1.
Click on the - Support & Downloads - tab.
(Overview / Specification / Support & Downloads / etc)
Click on the blue Down Arrow to the right of the blue subheading -
In the drop down list click on - Manual
To the right of - English 3201 pdf 5.13MB, click on the country NAME nearest yours.
This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the country NAME it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.
Hover your mouse cursor at the Bottom/Middle.
Go all the way to the right, and click on the Adobe PDF icon.
When you hover your mouse cursor over it, "Show Adobe Reader toolbar" will briefly appear.
Now,.........isn't that better?
Pages 35 through 37.
[You can also use the Clear CMOS jumper. Page 22 - Number 21.
CLR_PWD (Clear Password)
More info on Page 33.
I,.........however, do not advise it. One mistake, and you'll have an expensive paperweight. Hence why I gave no guidance in using it ]

Before installing the memory modules, please comply with the following conditions:
1. Please make sure that the memory used is supported by the motherboard. It is
recommended that memory of similar capacity, specifications and brand be used.
2. Before installing or removing memory modules, please make sure that the computer
power is switched off to prevent hardware damage.
3. Memory modules have a foolproof insertion design. A memory module can be installed
in only one direction. If you are unable to insert the module, please switch the direction.
1-4 Installation of Memory
The motherboard supports DDR II memory modules, whereby BIOS will automatically detect memory
capacity and specifications. Memory modules are designed so that they can be inserted only in one
direction. The memory capacity used can differ with each slot.
