i was messin around with overclocking my cpu and got a black screen once. i turned off my comp and was told 2 remove the battery that is located on the mobo (kinda looks like a big watch battery). I kept the battery out for a couple minutes and then put it back in. I booted up and it worked. somethin about reseting the bios. mite want to check and see if this is wat u should do first tho.
