So I was undervolting my cpu with AMD overdrive and it was stable at this voltage. So i restarted the comp to set it in the bios but it wouldn't start up and got stuck in a restart loop. so i turned off power and turned it on again and now it doesnt post anymore. everything is seems to be running just nothing is on the screen. i think it might be the bios got corrupted is there any way to tell? please dont tell me the cpu can die from undervolting i just wanted to save energy :cry:

For some Asus and Gigabyte boards, for an easy cmos reset, press continuously the Insert key on your keyboard while powering up.

1. Press Insert key repeatedly
2. (while pressing Insert repeatedly) press the power button of your computer.

If it works as intended you should see the POST screen indicating that "overclocking failed".

If it doesn't you may need to reset manually with the cmos reset jumper (see your motherboard manual).
