The first pic is useless.

In the second pic for starters I'd be putting my os hdd on IDE1, why you have it connected to IDE2 has me perplexed.

That screen is a standard "Overclocking Failed" screen, nothing special, reset the cmos, boot up, take note of your cpu vcore, boot back to the bios, try again at the same or slightly higher vcore, oc the cpu only (until you get it stable) so use a divider on the ram.

Rinse and repeat.

I take it you're new to overclocking??

Did you reset the cmos or reset default settings in the bios at all? That may have dropped the vcore below the level needed for your overclock. Is the ram seperated with a divider or are you overclocking it at the same time? Is the ram getting enough voltage? (if you are indeed overclocking it)

Default Re: overclocking problem

well thats the thing, if i try to up the voltage on the ram, i have to pull the battery and restart the bios haha cuz it wont start up with it like that, and all's i raise is the cpu mhz and the vcore the most i can up it is like 10 volts but it wont go any higher than 209 mhz but on normal voltage it can go up to 218 =(

Default Re: overclocking problem

What ram do you have and what are the manufacturers timing recommendations??

Those timings in the pic look awful tight from what I can make out, you may need to relax them to oc.

Default Re: overclocking problem

You need to determine what the ram is to know what timing to use, i'm guessing that the ram is DDR400 with the timings (that I can make out it looks like) 2.5-3-3-7. You would need to relax these to 3-4-4-8 (best guesstimate without knowing the brand & model of the ram)

You would need to loosen these timings in the bios at the same time as you apply your overclock settings.
