    Try resetting the cmos. This is usually done by moving a jumper on the mobo. You mobo manual should tell your how to do this.

    Alternatively, unplug your computer from the mains, and remove the cmos battery for a few minutes, then replace it. This should reset your cmos/bios to the defult settings.

    Hopefully your sister won`t have caused any permanent damage.

    Regards Howard :)

    i did the same thing to my last system when i tried oc'ing for the first time. the cmos reset worked like a charm. my manual had me remove the battery THEN reset the jumpers. so same thing howard said, but try combining the two and that might work.

    let us know if it works out :)

    Glad you got it sorted.

    Now tell your sister not to touch it again or else [​IMG]
