Hello,

Recently I realized that my cpu was overclocked, so I tried to set the clock back to the base clock, but instead it set to 800 MHz, and I clicked save and exit on the bios before I noticed it did that.

Now my pc will turn on, the fans will run, all the lights turn on, but as soon as the display changes colour the pc restarts, only to continue the same process. It was working fine before I tried to change it back, just had random crashes and I assumed it was the overclock. It was set to 4.2 GHz, and my CPU's base clock is 3.7 GHz

I've tried switching over the jumper pins on the Motherboard, unplugging all my peripherals, even trying to boot into bios by taking out my SSD and still nothing.

Here are my specs
Intel i5 9600k
Aorus pro WiFi z390
Rtx 2070s
16 gb corsair vengeance rgb pro
Xpg spectrix s40g 1tb

Any help is appreciated!

Hold the power button down when turning the pc on, it should turn on as usual then after a few seconds switch off.
Then press it as normal to turn the pc back on. You should now be in the back up BIOS.
