BIOS Failure

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hoping someone can walk me through my problems. I tried getting into my BIOS to overclock to 4.5 (1.32v). When I restarted, my system tried to boot, but shut itself down and booted again. When it did, the BIOS Failure LED started flashing. Settings stuck on the reboot but as soon as I started P95, I got a bluescreen. I retreat back into BIOS, step voltage up to 1.33 and the problem repeats itself with the second BIOS. System shuts down, and BIOS boots like normal. Right now, my only stable OC is with OC Genie. My CPU was run @ 4.8 with its previous owner so my question is this...is my M/B the cause of my problems?

Your motherboard is holding it back, Chances are the m/b has become unstable from being over clocked and may need to be changed.

Is it a used board/cpu if so find out the exact setting's they used to make it get to 2.8ghz because they could of been pulling a fast one or gave you a duff board

Have you tried resetting the BIOS? If the board doesn't have a button for it, unplug the PSU, take out the CMOS battery and hold down the power button for 10 seconds or so, replace the battery and cord, and power up. This will cause it to lose the time and date as well so you'll need to fix that.
