I recently tried overclocking my desktop and I went a bit too far. The machine no longer gets to the screen that allows me to enter the bios. I tried switching the CPU but this did not work, it still will not let me get to the bios. Is there any way to fix this?
You can reset your BIOS settings to default a few ways:
These methods are explained in more detail here.
There is also the possibility your motherboard is toast, but try the above methods before losing all hope and wasting money.
Look at the support document / specification of your motherboard as there is sometimes a jumper that can reset the stored settings.
If you can not find this information then -
Unplug the machine, unplug the PSU (this step is not always needed), take out the battery from the motherboard.
Pray for 15 minutes to the computer god, and turn the PC back on without the battery in.
If this does not work, I would try again but wait about a hour.
Hope this helps!
