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: .

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 :)
