    Do a 'hard' shutdown and reboot.

    No, a hard shutdown, in most cases, is holding the physical power button down for more than 5 - 10 seconds til everything shuts off.
    Everything comes to a screeching halt without programs closing down properly but, sometimes it's the only way.
    Then you just power up again and hopefully meet with some success.

    Take out the battery for 1 few seconds


    If you take out the battery and put it back in the motherboard should reset to default.

    we are talking the bios battery yes ?
    it was situated directly under my giant graphic card, ( would have been better somewhere else on the motherboard where it couldnt be obscured, thanks gigabyte ) just removed it and the bios battery is visible, held at one edge by a small spring clip, i was hoping moving the clip back, would releae the battery, but it didnt, dont want to use anything metal to encourage it out...

    Shorting out the reset jumper pins will also work.
