Computer won't boot


I've done a mistake while changing my clock speed and I have put it to 143 mhz instead of 133 mhz and now my computer won't boot. Is there any way I can do anything to fix this other than changing hardware and if not, what hardware do i have to change? Thanks.

Never change the clock speed setting if you don't know what you are doing this setting is usually the Memory speed Maybe your memory has the clock speed of 133 which are PC133.

You might want to change it back what it was, because this cause the system not synch with the memory and you may recieve a blue screen or your computer won't boot at all.

If you had change it back an still doesn't work, please double check again either the CMOS setting or the Jumper of the motherboard It will be more helpful to go the website of the manufacture of your computer and download troubleshooting guide line, or may call your computer manufacture and ask for tech support.

Another suggestion is to take all the memory out or your computer and reboot Then insert one by one and see if your computer boot and is picking up the memory.
