Exper Bios help needed



last night i tried to see if pc go faster???? confused2 by increasing the FSB from 200 to 400 (in BIOS) and not realizing the Max set is 300. having saved it i clicked Y and waited for reboot it did not happened so i pressed restart, the screen went black and stayed . i turned it off restart again nothing but black screen .

i took the memory and graphic card out replaced with others still black screen, then i took the cpu out and put it back still black screen. i have checked the memory and graphic card they are ok

one thing strange is when i pull the plug out and when i put it back the pc starts without me pushing the power on switch??

the BIOS is award

i have pressed F8 nothing happens (window never starts)
the HDD works one can hear it the CPU fan runs

i have copy of PC pain killer but i have not yet used it to see if i can get into bios and reset it to default

Some people never learn, RTFM.

If you remove the battery and leave it for about 5 mins, then reset it, I think that it will revert all settings to default, or does that only work with passwords, can't remember ???.
