    The processor wouldn't have been fired. Just consider this your computers defence mechanism to when you overclock your processor too far - it'll just give you a blank screen instead of booting up, and frying the processor.

    Try resetting your BIOS to defaults, look in your motherboard manual for details.

    You don't need to. Look through your manual or online for the right jumper on your motherboard to change.

    Yup, just reset the CMOS. Use the JP1 jumper.

    Yep... I've had to do that any number of times. What happened was your motherboard couldn't run the system at the settings you chose. It locked everything down so that it wouldn't do any permanent damage to the processor or peripherals. By resetting the CMOS jumper, it takes the settings back to factory default.

    But don't let this discourage you. Just take a smaller bite out of the FSB next time you raise the limits. It will take a bit of trial and error, but in time you will be able to find the best speed for your system to run smoothly.

    Something else to consider... if you have good cooling in place, then raising the voltage of the processor core can help you hit higher FSB speeds. :)
