You most likely over-overclocked & you're not resetting the BIOS correctly. You MUST unplug the power cord to clear the BIOS.

Unplug the cord, move the clearCMOS jumper from the normal position to the clear position, wait a few seconds, then move it back to the normal position again. Plug in the power, boot up & immediately correct your BIOS settings.

The ClearCMOS jumper is JBAT1...it's right next to the battery. You don't need to remove the battery at all. And even if you do remove the battery, the BIOS will reset in seconds...it doesn't take a week. There is ALWAYS power to the motherboard, even when the system is shut off...as long as the power cord is plugged in, the "standby power" is keeping the CMOS chip energized. The power cord MUST BE UNPLUGGED or the BIOS won't reset. However, if you attempted to boot the system with the jumper in the CLEAR position, you *may* have damaged the board. Straight from your manual:

"MSI Reminds You...
You can clear CMOS by shorting 2-3 pin while the system is off.
Then return to 1-2 pin position. Avoid clearing the CMOS while
the system is on; it will damage the mainboard."

How do you have the J10 & J11 jumpers set? If those are mucked up, it won't matter what you do in terms of clearing CMOS. Remove the jumper from J11 & set the J10 jumper to pins 2-3, then try clearing CMOS using the JBAT jumper. This *should* allow you to boot in "safe mode" @ 100MHz FSB.
