BIOS issues

I have a Gigabyte 7VTXH+ MB and I was in the BIOS and I enabled "Top Performance" in the Chipset menu. The default was disabled.
The User Manual did not go into detail on what this feature is. I figured ... why not.....
The system automatically rebooted and from that point on the monitor is no longer picking up a signal.
I boot the system and the monitor just stays in power down mode.
I don't have access to the BIOS screen to reset the Chipset menu.
Is there a way to manually reset the BIOS directly from the MB ?
Any idea's on how I can get this working again ?

couple of ways, check the manual, see if there is a jumper to reset the bios, or try removing the battery for about an hour and then put it back

usually a cmos reset jumper near the mainboard battery housing. Move jumper to clear cmos setting then power up (you'll usually get nothing on screen). Turn off & move back to default position & power up again.

Murry95,
        try bootinh the computer holding down the 'Print Screen' (sysRq) button.  Most boards will reset the Bios to the manufacturers default setting doing this.

Good luck

Try this, if you dont know the jumpers on the board or can't find them via Web Page or in your manual, just pull out the battery on the motherboard and also unplug your power cord from the Case/powersupply. leave the battery out for a few minutes.  And put the battery back in.
Actually here is a link the the motherboard manual:
http://ftp.gigabyte.com.tw/support/user_pdf/7vtxe(h)+_1001.pdf

On Page 55, there is something of interest.  Take a look at that:
it states that it has two bios's a main one and a backup.  When you turn on your computer.  Keep pressing F2, for the backup.  Hopefully that one will fix your problem?!  So try all those other ideas I mentioned.  If not it just could be that your monitor went out or your video card?  Try another monitor if you have on around, or another video card.  Just some suggestions.

This motherboard has a "reset to Factory specs" setting by holding down the F2 function key and powering up the PC.

Hey I said that?  F2 for the backup bios.  It's not reset to factory specs.  read the PDF.  It has dual Bios support.
