Default Re: overclock problem

no you just have it set so that it is unstable. Reset your CMOS and it should boot with all the default settings. You may have a jumper on your board to reset it if not just remove the battery on your motherboard for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and it should reset your BIOS to stock

Probably just clocked it too high. Try starting just a bit over the stock clocks and slowly work your way up.

Just look up your memory online. You should be able to find the correct voltages for them.

yeah try reseting the CMOS and try and boot it up. This will reset the voltage changes and everything else you did so it should boot after that.

Default Re: overclock problem

I did it doesn't give the full manual it gives part of it... when it says do CPR go to page 1.23 it only goes to page 1.10 and then goes to 2.1 its bull all day been getting the bad end of the stick heh... If i pull out the CMOS Lithium battery will it reset?

nevermind i am just going to do the jumper CPR wouldnt work for me because well I never saved any bios setting will be doing this though.
--------------------------

EDIT

ok I am up and running can anyone tell me how this looks? I overclocked my ram but kept the voltages the same and same thing with the CPU so far so good is there anything that could happen doing this? I dont see any problem. I may up the cpu +50mw but i only clocked it +400mhz
