I accidently adjusted my processor speed  by saving and exiting instead of
just exiting the setup and now my system won't boot.
I cant even get into the BIOS setup.
Any way to revert back to original BIOS settings?

Try holding down the Insert key before and during power up.. You may
need to disconnect the AC cord for 15 seconds first.

Re: HELP!!

As another poster remarked, hold down the "Insert" key while you power up
the system. That is supposed to cause it to boot using the default BIOS

If that doesn't work (it probably will), clear the CMOS settings. There's a
jumper near the button cell that maintains the CMOS settings. Turn off the
power to the system (unplug it if your power supply has no switch), change
the jumper from pins 1 and 2 to 2 and 3. Wait a few seconds, then move it
back. Apply power again, and the system should boot in the default BIOS
settings. (You may need to go into the BIOS setup immediately and make some
setting changes if you're using RAID.)

All this is in the manual, which is available for download from if you've mislaid your original copy.
