    sounds like you may have fried something...not a smart move (no offense)

    probably fried the motherboard if it is accepting power and no monitor output, what brand motherboard is it?

    try resetting all power strips and the back of the power supply for precautions..

    should be a reset switch on power strip.

    Any time you mess with overclocking/power settings, this is a risk you take.

    Last time i saw this same thing you are describing it was a burned up mobo or cpu (i really cant remember which...been awhile). Take the covers off, take a smell inside, see if it smells burnt at all. If your familiar with computer components, you could try to reseat everything, power supply wires, cpu, memory, etc etc...this may help (hopefully).

    Good luck!

    also if none of the above works, you could try resetting the bios...

    best to goto the mobo website and download a manual to be sure.
