So I used evga's over locking tool from steam, I did a 140 mhz overclock and everything was fine, layer on I went to install something and it told me to restart, so I did, now it will not boot or post, just gives me an 8 beep code, I have changed the cmos battery, which then changes to a 5 beep code, but eventually goes back to an 8 beep code, pulled out and reseated the ram, I have unplugged and replugged the lcd cable.
I have no idea what left to do, can anyone please help, thank you.

8 beeps is an LCD failure. Only thing left to try is replacing the screen. It may be the connector, or maybe something related to the overclock that damaged something so the system is tossing up a false error code. That you will only find out if replacing the screen and/or cable did not fix it.
