Question about ASUS P5GZ-MX Motherboard
Since you're familiar with overclocking I doubt that you're afraid to work on your motherboard.When you remove the battery,make sure the computer is unplugged and while you have your hands in the case it's important that some part of you,hand-forearm-anything,stay in constant contact with a metal part of the case unless you have an anti-static wrist strap.And be careful when removing the battery.Some are held in with small metal clips that you may not see if you don't know they're in there and prying the wrong way will break the battery socket.Look closely to see how it's held in before trying it.
And as rhymewurdz said,leave it out for 30 secs or so,put it back,restart and enter BIOS.You'll have to enter any changes you made to the original settings but set the CPU clock speed back to it's PROGRAMMED speed if BIOS doesn't do it on it's own.If you changed any board jumpers trying to overclock the system,put them back.
You won't gain enough performance through overclocking to make up for the instability you're going to have even if it works overclocked.The excess heat alone,unless you've planned and compensated for that,will shorten the life of your system by quite a bit.
One thing,BIOS settings won't reset your Windows password,just your BIOS password if you set one.
Any questions,post back here and someone will be here to help you out.
