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.

    Find and short the CMOS reset jumper. Start the computer. shut it off.
    Remove the jumper. You should get a working set of default CMOS values.
    I went through this on Saturday. I feel your pain.

    yeah, i'd refer to your product manual for an exact procedure...the wrong action may cause harm to the board.
