Hi Last night i was fooling around with my BIOS, and i accidently put the DRAM timing for the NorthBrdige Configuration to TURBO. Without thinking, i saved and exited. I have been trying to start up but to no success. All the fans and lights start up, but nothing shows up on my monitor (its just in its idle state). PLEASE help ASAP as this is a computer used on a DAILY basis

Re: overclocking help plz
In your manual, go to the top of pg. 1-21. Section 1.9. There you'll find how to reset your cmos. This will reset your bios back to it's originall settings. Restart your pc & enter the bios. Reset your configuration & leave the memory to Auto.

pull a stick of RAM so the motherboard sees a "hardware configuration change" and power the unit up. If you see the keyboard lights flash, power the system back down, re-insert your RAM stick, and power back up.

hi sunnyh, when you start up the PC start pressing the F8 key every 2 seconds. A dos like window will load. At the bottom of the list choose, last known good configuration. (win might load the last good configuration) it's worth the try.
If your PC still does not load windows than repeat the above, this time choose, Disable automatic restart on system failure.
This also might allow windows to load (hopefully).
A system that starts going into this restart loop happens for many different reasons. Most common reason was a program that was last installed just before PC was restarted. Second most common reason for restart loop. Added new hardware, bios changes & windows boot files corrupted. If you did install a program, uninstall it. If you were in your bios & made changes, reset the bios. If you flashed the bios, go back to the old bios version. If you added new hardware replace with older hardware.
To fix Windows you may have to reinstall it. Do not run format or you will loose all your data. Even system restore CD's allow for a win reinstall without a format, however if the cd does not allow you to reinstall win unless you do a format. Than windows startup files are too screwed up & you'll have no choice but to format.
All you can do is try the above & cross your fingers.
