Messed with my bios and now it won't boot, no post...

  1. Greets,

    I just recently changed something with my bios and now my comp doesn't boot up at all. Not getting any power to the keyboard anymore, the monitor doesn't display ANYTHING, no post tests or anything. I'm a complete newb when it comes to tweaking bios so I probably shouldn't have been messing with anything there in the first place, but I guess that's obvious now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    If you have the motherboard or computer instruction manual, find out how to reset the BIOS by using the jumper on the motherboard. If you can't find that, unplug the computer then remove the battery from the motherboard and replace it after five minutes. :grinthumb

    El Presidente is right. You won't be able to set anything because the system will not boot. The correct steps are what El Presidente just described.
