    If you have the manual for the motherboard, see if there is a jumper setting to restore the BIOS to defaults. If you do not, try pulling the cmos battery out when the machine is unplugged and leave it out for a few minutes then re-install and try to boot.

    Applecrisp,

    "Crisp" is how your Processor could have turned out!!! You are very lucky.

    Before changing anything in the BIOS ask yourself three questions:

    1. Why am I doing this :confused:

    2. Do I know what the heck I'm doing :confused: :eek:

    3. Why am I fixing something if it ain't broken. :rolleyes:
