Default killed my new computer!

damn it! can anyone help me with this? I just got my new computer up and running and windows was detecting it as a 1.88Ghz AMD when it was in fact a 2.17Ghz AMD. So I went to the bios and changed the clock mult to 14x (FSB of 166Mhz) giving 2.34Ghz and then it died. And I now cant get it to boot up and give me a picture or anything.... any ideas? I'm thinking that there might be a hardware lock out on the mobo and so maybe I can clear the cmos and see if that helps. But I'm running outta ideas....

help! please...

Alan

Hehe, I know exactly how you must have felt when you pressed the power button and nothing happened. Glad you got it sorted out...

no that was the worst thing, it would spin up the hard disks and everything would appear to start up but i was getting no picture and some diagnostic LED's on the case were telling me it was a CPU problem that's why I was panicking. I thought I'd blown the RAM and CPU (and everything else!!) but I got lucky this time! no more arsing around with the clock speed for me!
