    Unplug the computer. Open the case, disconnect the big power cable connecting to the motherboard, and pop out the little lithium battery on the motherboard. Let it sit like this for a couple of minutes, and then put everything back together. That should do the trick, unless something really is fried, in which case you'll probably have to replace the CPU and the motherboard.

    Please be careful when you start disconnecting stuff.
