Solved After changing settings in bios.PC won't boot.tryed CMOS

February 17, 2017 at 23:06:21
Specs: Win 7, Intel dh61 ww
Tryed CMOS and jumper.someone also said that your motherboard might be shot.I just over clocked memory but when I searched previous discussion about it I saw I had over clocked in wrong way.do I have to get a new motherboard.I checked the ram in another PC and it was fine

✔ Best Answer
Unplug the machine, move the jumper from the neutral location to the active location for say 5 or 10 seconds, move the jumper back and plug the machine in. Press the power button and access the BIOS set up. If you cannot access the BIOS set up try unplugging the hard drive and trying again. If the power supply has a manual off switch you may use that instead of unplugging it (the key here is that no power get to the motherboard during the process).
Post back hardware list and a description of all that you see and hear if it does not work.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You didn't provide all the necessary info. I'm guessing your board is the Intel DH61WW. We need to know which CPU & what speed RAM.

If you messed up the BIOS settings, all you need to do is reset it & start from scratch. The "BIOS configuration jumper" is near the SATA ports. Make sure the system is shutdown & the power cord is unplugged. Move the jumper from its normal position to the clear position, wait a few seconds, then move it back. That's all there is to it, but it's very important the the power cord is unplugged or the BIOS may not reset.

I have tryed with the jumper many times any other ideas. I changed my power supply settings but my PSU is not roasted and evenly I could not smell anything. Is it possible that my motherboard or any other component is roasted including processor

What 'power supply settings' did you change?

Overclocking the memory shouldn't damage anything but your attempts to fix it may have. I think the best thing right now is to put everything back exactly like it was, then clear the cmos with the power cord removed as already described, and then attempt to start it up normally.

Are you saying that you increased the voltage supplied to the CPU? If so, it's possible that you have fried it.

You need to more specific when posting specs. There are numerous possibilities for Corsair DDR3 RAM - DDR3-1066, DDR3-1333, DDR3-1600, etc.

Based on your specs, you could easily get by with a decent 400W PSU. The only switches on a PSU are on/off & input voltage (110V or 220v). And the only thing I could find for "MSW 800w psu" is a power inverter:

If you switched the 120/220 switch from 120Volts to 220Volts with a supply like the USA which is 110Volts then your system will not work. If you switched it from 220V to 120V in a European or other country that uses 220Volts then you doubled the potential output voltage and fried the power supply and possibly major components like the motherboard and CPU to name a few.
If your understanding of computers and electronics is limited then take it to a professional or a friend that does understand it well.

Do I have to detach every point from motherboard to clear cmos

First detach the AC power cord because the PSU provides a small charge to the motherboard even when the computer is off. Then locate the 'clear cmos' jumpers on the motherboard. It's usually 3 pins. Normally a jumper should be across 2 pins--the center pin and one of the side pins. That's the standby position. Move the jumper to the clear position--the center pin and the other side pin. Keep it there for a few seconds then place the jumper back in the standby position.

Plug the power cord back in and start the computer. If all is well you'll need to enter cmos/bios setup and set the date and time and maybe some other settings, although their default settings often are OK.

Unless you're replacing the power supply, there's no reason to mess with the plug. It would help to know exactly what PSU you have because I could find nothing on MSW. It could simply be a piece of garbage & may be the cause of all your problems. And you certainly don't need an 800W unit for the hardware you have listed.

Anyhow, to remove the plug, make sure to fully depress & unlock the latch that secures the plug to the socket. Then rock the plug from end to end while pulling upward. Don't yank it.

If it matters now, the AC power cord to remove was the one that attaches to the PSU on the outside rear of the computer--it's not the 24-pin connection from the PSU to the motherboard inside the computer.

: I first removed ac cord.
:Switched off PSU button.
:Removed hard drive port,graphic card,CMOS,ram,CD writer port.
:pressed power button for 30sec.
:moved jumper from original position to 2nd and 3rd pin.
:again pressed power button for 30 seconds.
:again moved jumper to first position.
:put only single memory stick
:connected ac cord and VGA port on mono to VGA of display.
:switched on the PSU.
:viola!!! I got to the bios reset

Thanks for all the responses.....
Especially rider,fingers,davinecaps and all others....
Thanks once again
