Hello, I’m new here
Last night I tried to over clock my GPU, (MSI GeForce 1030), I got the clock up to about 240 and everything was going grand, I then went up +40 and my display driver crashed, now windows are stretched horizontally infinitely, fonts aren’t loading, icons are missing and downloading is a no no, I have tried another graphics card and the screen is black on boot, and it posts 5 beeps. I really need help! It would be appreciated if someone could reply asap

My specs (Not the best)
AMD FX6300
MSI GeForce GT1030
ASROCK 970M Pro3
DDR3 1x8gb

With your power fully off, pull the PSU power cord (just to be sure) and, if necessary, pull the CMOS battery to completely clear your BIOS. It wouldn't hurt to wipe and reinstall your Nvidia drivers as well once you get it back to where you can view the desktop again.

Thanks guys, I have tried reinstalling Windows and that fixed everything, must have been an update or a driver problem :)
