Exclamation OverClocking Problems Please Help!

OK, so I had my 3200+ Venice running all the way to 2.4GHz very stabely and cold. So i tried to up it to 2.5Ghz, and I tried to boot windows and got a stop error. So I backed it down to defaults, and I still got a stop error. Going back and looking at it, I constantly monitored my temperatures, and nothing got over 40 Degrees Celsius. But, I looked in my buios, as I upped the CPU frequency, it also upped my memory speed. SO, I had my memory running wayyyy faster thatn it should of. So i'm thinking I ruined that ram. SO I don't really know what could be keeping windows from booting. PLease Help.

since u seem to have 2 sticks of ram try to see if one of them works. Just take the other one out and try if windows will start up. Then try the other stick.
If u can't get it to work then get ur hands on some ram that definitely works and test with it.

If it got damaged because of the high frequencies I don't think that there is anything to do exept by new ram.
