should i get a new motherboard?

ok so i put together a little budget build last night for the girlfriend- all was good after the build was done i was updating some drivers and setting it up.

well i went to overclock it a little and noticed that the multipliers were as high as they go- so i thought maybe i needed to update my BIOS, so i went and started updating my BIOS and the computer froze and shut down on me. well obviously its not gonna start because the BIOS is corrupted..

so now im lost- is there any hope of recovery? or should i just send the MB back and get another one?

Hmmm...most boards have a way to do a factory reset...maybe just as easy to pull the cmos battery and plop it back on. If that fails, exchange it if you can.

Did you move the save/clear pin while the battery was out? Most likely, but just checking.
