I know it was very stupid to remove the CMOS battery, but I used this technique with an award bios and all I had to do was restore the "Defaults". Well this time I tried it with an intel board. Now my PC won't boot. HELP!!!!!! :cry: .

By "won't boot", what do you mean exactly? No video? hangs on post? what?
Flash your BIOS at your own risk.

Why was it stupid to remove the battery? Batteries also go dead and no manufacturer I know make motherboards that pop their clogs everytime the battery gets old.
You sure you didn't touch anything else whilst inside your box? (Static :twisted: )

just a thought.

Is it completely dead by the way?
or do you get whirrs and clicks and goes past POST and then crashes when you start Winamp :)
