Exclamation Do Not Power Off, Froze, Reset, Won't Post Please Help!!


So I was setting my bios settings after I had a false overtemp detection (my peltier cooling really screws with the sensor). The machine wouldnt post if the temperature was under 10C after saving bios. Then, it froze (stuck for about 45 seconds) on the do not power off your system screen.

So naturally, I had to do something, I hit reset. Now of course no post, reset cmos, battery and all, for 12 minutes. I'm already looking in to getting a replacement chip. Is this my only option or are there other things I can try? PLEASE HELP.

For the record, the monitor does recieve a green pwoer on and there are no beeps.
