i pushed the cpu to 200fsb this afternoon, the computer doesn't boot, so i clean the coms, then it boots, but the monitor receives no signal-- nothing shows up on the monitor

I know what your problem is, unfortunately MSI didn't do us any favors in creating this board in reference to overclocking. What you need to do is move the two jumpers which will make it run at the bare minimums (100 FSB) and boot using that. Then, change your FSB back to where it normally is, save, turn off the computer, change the jumpers back, and you will be fine. This is why we are all ****ed off that MSI didn't just let you run the minimum settings by hitting the insert key! Oh well, that should be your solution, good luck
