    What do you mean by changing the FSB ? Why don't you come out & say you tried to overclock your system & it didn't work ? ;)

    Have you tried doing a clear cmos on the motherboard ?

    Burnt something? Is the FSB the only thing you changed?

    Clearing Cmos is probably the only way to reset BIOS if its stuffed like this. Just open the case and remove the batt, and wait for 30 secs, longer if you want. Usually I remove it and make some coffee :p

    Or for a faster way, but a coin of the came size in there and wait 10 secs.

    Or on some m/b, you can press one button. If you got one of those, and didn't know that existed, you just wasted your money :p


    If clearing the Cmos doesn't work, test to see the graphics card is still alright. You might've forgotten to change the AGP/PCI/SRC ratio, and might've burnt that, but its quite unlikely. Remove and try on a different system.
