Heres a link to clarify Cmos clearing. http://www.logan.eclipse.co.uk/dfi_ui___lpb_faq.htm#Memory You'll find a section about a little more than half way down the page. Just past the bio's section. Called cmos clearing the dfi way. The jumper appears to be between the southbridge chip and the top pci slot. It says first unplug the computer. Then remove the cmos battery. Then set that jumper to the 2-3 pin position. for 30-60 sec min. (According to this version) I've also seen recomenditations after a bios flash of 12 hour min. In other sections. Other sections where poeple are ironing the buggs out of new boards. And have flashed to a bios that seems to have disagreed with thier boards. And had to reflash to an earlier version. To clear for much longer to get rid of the former bios residual settings. And hopefully whatever else was ailing it.(Sometimes many hrs)
When satisfied that the cmos is cleared this says: Replace the cmos jumper to the run position.(1-2 pins then jumped) Replace the cmos battery. Plug the computer into the wall socket. Boot to the bios configuration screen. Load optmised defaults. Save and exit. Reboot into the bios configuration and change the settings to your liking. Note: Its best if you only make minimal changes at a time in the bios, then save and exit, i.e. 1 or 2 changes. It minimises on bios corruption. (
Also note next time you set your processor speed remember DDR doubles it. 133 was 266fsb. What you did was set it for 533. A might high is my guess. I'd say that's it! when overclocking go slow and test your results.Then test them some more. Probably that rig of yours could pull 533ddr if the multis are unlocked and you've really good memory. In some of these post's here I've seen em' runnin' lot's higher than that! UIs-LPs But not without some preparation.
But that's enough on that. Outa' Me.LOL I'm sure you'll do better next time.
I noticed that you mentioned removing the heatsink? or just fan?. This could be the problem if you removed the heatsink(Or loosened it) didn't clean it,and the chip die with alchol and apply new thermal paste.(I've seen that before)(Probably not the problem though) Near instant shutdown. Also If you've heated yer' processor and it has shut-down due to heat. Clearing the cmos by this method cannot hurt. (Hehee probably all it needs)
I could be wrong but I really don't think you've hurt anything. Making mistakes is how we learn. He who makes no mistakes usually makes nothing.
While my dfi experience is nearly nil' I've been building computers for many-many years.Not allways with the best of instructions either. I myself have really destroyed very few componites. I've seen others set the jumpers for 3.5vcore on k6-2s and cook them. (Cooked a 486 myself by plugging it in wrong LOLCost me $450.00 too)But I don't think your mistake was that serious. (I've done worse and am none the worse for the wear.LOL(maybe wiser for it)) I figure at worst you may have hosed the bios. Processors at least the athlons XPs are very tough and will usually shut down the system before they fry.(Not allways though!)
Did you disconnect the sata? This might help too.
What I would try is clearing the cmos the long way. (Let er' set some hrs in the clear mode)There maybe other help here I think Rgone posted something here : About 45s the way to the bottom of the page.Past the nvmixer stuff before "the hals explained." Under "cold-warm boot problems."(I think your answers maybe there. At= http://www.logan.eclipse.co.uk/dfi_ui___lpb_faq.htm#Memory
Also off of Rgones post there there are some links to cmos reloaded you may look these over and see if anything helps. In this forum there is a wealth of knowledge and good people who really know these dfi's. (And computer's peroid)
And someone else will know what exactly is wrong and how to fix it. If that doesn't help. Stay tuned! "Clay"
