Hi,

Do you by any chance have another video card that you can switch in here to try and get this thing up and going so you can change or undo your new settings? Also, you might want to look at resetting your CMOS by changing that jumper to clear the CMOS and then set up the default settings on your BIOS setup. Save it and reboot and give it a try.
