Auto overclock?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got my 2500K gaming rig all setup installed windows, but it won't boot into windows. It will get to "press any key to boot off CD..." then it reboots, so I asked my friend who works at the tech repair center at CNN, and he said run drive fitness or gwscan to try and fix it, so I used the dvd that he gave me and ran the CPU test, and it said that my CPU was running at 3.41 GHz and I didn't do that, so I rebooted went to the multiplier, changed it back now is this "auto overclock" normal? Was it causing my system to not boot? Can anybody please tell me why it is not booting?

Did you set the boot drive to your HDD?
If it was booting up from Optical drive, you have to switch to your OS HDD.

I did, and when I first installed windows I installed it to my SSD, booted on to that then 5-10 seconds it would reboot and go into the reboot cycle, so I took the DVD out and it just said "loading Operating System..................." and rebooted. So i tried installing xubuntu and that would boot from the USB stick, but after I installed it I got stuck at a black screen
