Hi, I have an MSI K7N2G-ILSR motherboard, and Athlon XP 2700+ proc. While trying to overclock, I accidentally powered on with the JBAT1 jumper set to the clear CMOS position, and now it appears my motherboard is fried (as the manual warned it will damage it). I am disappointed, as I've done this accident before on other motherboards, with no permanent harm. I've tried unplugging, removing the CMOS battery and setting JBAT1 to clear, then cycling the power, then wait for 10+ minutes, hoping it will fix the problem, but the box still won't POST, no video at all. Does anyone know what sort of damage there may be to the motherboard, or perhaps is it just the battery, and replacing it will fix the problem? TIA,

-Alek

PS: Be VERY careful with the position of your CMOS clearing jumper while tweaking your settings, or this could happen to you :(

your m/b is dead. basiclyy put booting with jbat1 set to clear will damage the cmos memory therefore the system wont be able to boot. it is not easy to fix without the right tools. basiclly put you need to fork out for a new m/b.

Error 34:
There was no error
