Resetting bios of my PB mz36-r-017

I have enabled GFX card overclocking in the bios and now my laptop turns on but with nothing on screen, cannot access anything, are there any solutions?

The only way I can think of to reset the BIOS is to temporarily remove the CMOS battery. This will involve some dismantling, but possible you will find the battery in the memory compartment, in which case you may only need to open a cover. There is, however the possibility that if you have overclocked the graphics you have damaged the graphics chip.

I will try to temporarily remove the CMOS battery but i am having trouble locating my laptops disassembly guide.

Hi Carley Jay. You'll be very lucky to find any useful documentation on anything Packard Bell. Somewhere on the bottom of the laptop you should find a panel that you can open to fit additional RAM. If you are very lucky, then you might find a small battery pack plugged in there as well.

In the Ram area there isn't any small battery pack to remove, I want to find where the battery is on the motherboard before opening it up.

the manual is click here

Have you tried pressing F11 when the computer starts. Page 55. See if this will kick the screen in.
