Question about Computers & Internet
Please advise me. i am a kid. i am not an expert in computers, so yesterday i decided to Overclok my computer. it was originally 216 Mhz. i am so stupid, because when i overclocked it the first time to 233Mhz, it worked fine. i thought i could make my computer go even faster, so overclocked it to the maximum 250 Mhz. now whenever i turn on the computer, the machine is "On" but the screen stays blank. I have broke my computer and my parents will kill me. I think the computer is possibly, overheated or damaged in some way. here is what happened:
I turn on the computer > press DEL to enter setup > blue setup screen appears. select Advanced Chipset features > DRAM configuration > Memclock Index Value (Mhz) > it was originally 216 Mhz. i over clocked it to 233, which worked. i am so stupid i did it to the maximum 250Mhz. then > F10, to save it. type "Y" for yes, when it asks if you want to save the setting. > the computer goes blank as it Restarts. When it was restarting, it made several Beeping Noises, and Moving Parts noises. The screen remained blank. when i realised it was "broken" i turned the computer off at the mains wall plug. The noises and blank screen till happen when i try to turn on the computer. i want to know if there is any way to fix it. the computer has my GCSE and AS schoolwork on it. Please help me. Nivedita

First of all, it seems unlikely that you have actually broken anything.
Please look carefully at the options in the main setup menu (BIOS) after you press the DEL key... There sshould be an option to "loade defalut settings" or "load optimised settings"
If so select this option and F10 to save/exit and allow it to boot
