Default Emergency problem...

Well you may recognize me from the "Building a new computer" section of the forum and found that I am building a new rig and basically I ordered the parts and stuff and it is arriving soon. So then, I read the overclocking section and decided to see what I could do to my old computer so I read it over and over and tried to adjust my computer settings from the BIOS. But now my computer won't start. When I click the power button the lights go on and it starts to work - for about half a second. Then it shuts off immediatly. I have no idea what to do now... Please help.

Did you try to reset the bios by either moving the jumpers or by taking out the battery and waiting 5-10 seconds. This should, if done correctly, reset the bios to the original settings and you should be able to boot.
