I just got a new cpu and I think I jumped the gun on changing the bios. I had a Duron (133 fsb) and am replacing it with an AXP (166 fsb). So as soon as the thing booted up i switched the fsb in the BIOS to 166 and then the system crashed. I think what happened I forgot to change around the CAS and latencies on the memory. Anyways, I know there is an easy way to reset the bios without tearing everything out of the case to take the battery out, something involving the keyboard IIRC. Anyone have any idea what it is?

Oh, btw, nice to be back on the forums again :p

Ok, i managed to reset the BIOS, but now my pc isn't working. It works fine until it tries loading windows, and then I get the error screen telling me windows didn't load properly, and gives me all the options. I've tried all of them, and now I'm stuck. I'm hoping some of the more experienced users here can give me a clue as to what this could be a sign of. I've tried both the old and new parts.

Just a minor point: Durons are 100 (200) MHz. Athlon XP's have FSBs ranging from 133-200 dependant on the rating and core revision.
