I have the system in my sig. I have overclocked in the past but I was not when this problem came about. Basically I can't enter my BIOS, I hit Del, the screen goes blank and then a blue bar appears on the bottom. At this point the system is frozen. I have no other problems with this system. Any suggestions? Let me know if you need more info. Thanks.

Pull the bios battery and let it sit for a day... and/or try to reset the bios via jumper but I like pulling the battery personally.

If that don't work get a new bios chip ether from a friend or the manufacurer. Youy may need to rma or they may send it to you.

It is eay to pull and reinstall the flash chip - btw.
