Well it will tell you where in the motherboard manual, there are 2 pins you have to connect for 3 or 5 seconds that will erase the cmos settings, and put it all back to default. That should take care of the fsb setting, but damage may have already been done.

'Professionals' use a jumper, normal people use a screw driver, I used a butter knife the last time I had to do that.

If you can find the pins anywhere then you can take out that round battery and reset it too.

mmmm yeah that should be it......... your manual should explain the process as well. Used to be you had to connect the pins to make it reset, but if its already jumpered then I'm not exactly sure of the right action to take here.

hmmm maybe I should have said 'in my day'.... I'm 26 and feel like an old man...27... time for my mashed peas...., I mean dinner.
