ok so i was over clockin my cpu... just testing different settings. and i put it up kinda high. not sure how high .. my amd 64 3000 i think i had it at like 2.6 or near that.. well when i saved and exited bios, the led all four stayed lite up. meaning a cpu problem. so i reset the cmos like a million times and i cant get ne thing to boot. all 4 leds stay on.. can u damage a cpu by pushing it to far??? ive evern tried takin out the battery for like an hour and unplugging everything, reseating the cpu. ive tried it all... so u think i damaged it??

I don't really know as my DFI board is on the way, but from previous experience you need to reset the bios compeletely. There might be a key you can hit to do that (which I have no idea what it is), but if you don't know the key, then you can simply unplug the power cord, take out the BIOS battery and let it sit for 5 mins, then put everything back and clear your BIOS. That should fix the problem.

not being mean or rude. but i said in my first post i did all those... it doesnt boot. no video whatsoever. all 4 leds stay on.. not being rude. but if only people with advice could reply... im kinda stuck not knowing wether to return the board or the cpu

all fans spin.. the ram light comes on.. the cpu fan and chipset fans all run. and all my accessory fans.. and i hear the hdd spinning.. but the comp wont boot at all. cause the cpu light stays on.. so im taking it its prolly the cpu??

Do you have the resources to try the cpu in another computer? thats what i would do, test that sucker on another motherboard.

and i dun really think 2.6 is too far, should be around 1.5v or so, unless of course if u setted it higher and burned it
otherwise, what they said

i havent tried it, and i prolly shouldnt, but i dun think the cpu vid can fry it, prolly the vid control with the %s if u actually touched that, but it's not too possible.

ill go ahead and admit it.. i got really drunk the other night and got bored and was just messing with all the settings.. but i guess my question is.. like wether or not i did something to damage it.. id unno. but is there actually something in the setttings i couldve done that could actually fry the cpu. wether it be the cpu vid or %thing.. i dunno much about overclockin. and i feel like an idiot.. but yea i know i was just all in the genie settings and was changing all kind of stuff...
