Restore it to stock and get back into operation. This may require some input from the laptop maker as there is no standard here.

Overclocking is NEVER a sure thing. I do run into folk that thought it was and most figure it out that it wasn't a sure thing.

How do I restore it to stock because I can’t even access it.

Varies with machine.

But in most cases I reset the CMOS values (see the product manual) and change what I need to from stock (your machine so you know this) and it boots again.
