No DISPLAY after changing BIOS settings

Right, here we go :(
My main PC, an OEM model has been working fine for a 3 years or so. It has an MSI MoBo with 2Gig RAM., I think it has a 3Ghz Intel Processor. After rebuilding another machine over the weekend, for some reason that escapes me at the moment, I decided to have a look at the BIOS settings of my main system. I set the BIOS to 'HIGH Performance Settings', ignoring the 'well it may not work after this' warnings, thinking that I could just change the setting if it didn't work.
Well, it didn't work :( The trouble I get no graphics at all from it so I can't get back into the BIOS to update it. I've tried two differeent AGP graphics card and and old PCI one without success. I MAY be able to dig out the manuals etc, so that give a more accurate description of the system but any ideas of how I can reset the BIOS would be more than welcome !! The system sounds like its booting, but there are no beeps etc it's very hard to tell without a screen !

Just remove the power cord, then the boards battey for ca 10 minutes, and the BIOS should be reset. Most boards also have a special jumper to reset the BIOS, that should be shown in the manual.

If you find the manual look for the "clear cmos jumper setting" or take the battery out as rindi suggested.
