I followed it 100% through. Now when I restarted my computer I get a blank black screen. The fan is working. The lights are on. I waited for 30 mins. blank black screen. I turned off JumperFree mode and used jumper mode. I set it back to default multiplier settings of 8.0 and 100CPU which equals 800 MHz Thunderbird. Is there any way to erase all of the stuff I put in the BIOS? like turn the BIOS to all defaults?
You could try to reset the BIOS either by the BIOS reset jumper, (don't know where, ain't got an Asus)

or if you can't find that, unplug the board from the PSU (There's still a trickle of volts left in the PSU once it's off and unplugged from the mains) and pull the battery for a few minutes (go & make a cup of tea) and fit it back when you've finished drinking it. That should clear any bad info in the BIOS.
The INSERT key on the keyboard has two uses - word processing and restting BIOS.

Don't reset from the PC front - turn power off then on at the PSU whilst holding INSERT down until the screen comes on.

Very Very necessary when overclocking past the limit and you don't want to shove your hand in the case to get to the reset Jumper for danger of chopping your hand off in the melee of 80fans
