Ok, total newb question - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
OK, I screwed something up. I was just playing around with my clock speed and watching my CPU temps (never got above 50°C, slowly increasing it from 133, got it to 139) and now nothing.
When I go to start the computer, nothing at all. The power button and hard drive lights light up, but the monitor does not come on and I can't even get into the BIOS to change the settings.
Did I fry something or what? I guess this is why you should try it on a cheap computer first, huh?

As to you MB question.

Did you take a flashlight and or magnifying glass and examine your mother board?

It's just amazing the info that the old pen and paper with a good set of eyes can amass.

Add this info with BelArc etal and you'll have more than you need.

Later ...

139 fsb shouldn't fry the cpu. mightve fried the ram though... you must memtest and do some stress testing in between.

your mobo probably crapped out needing more volts. you will need to look for the cmos jumper switch and move the little connectopr thing. your manual will tell you where to find the jumper

OK, got it working by just unplugging it and removing the battery for a few hours.
I have looked through the manual some more and I do believe this is a little over my head right now. I just need to do some more reading and figure it out better before I screw it up more.

Thanks for your patience and help.

Your not going to be able to overclock that board. It lacks the agp/pci lock. So in turn when you crank up the FSB you also turn up the agp and pci frequency. Which is not a good thing to do. It can lead to hard drive corruption and can mess up your video card. Best bet is to select optimized deafaults and leave it at that. If you want to overclock you need board with the nforce2 chipset. Not via.

OK, so by only increasing my clock speed (I can get it from the original 133 to 142 with no apparent problems, which gets me from 2.00ghz to 2.13ghz) am I hurting anything? CPU temp is only about 3-5°C warmer than at original settings with a regular CPU air cooling fan, and it seems to be running fine (but have not played any games on it yet).
I am going to run a benchmark again and see if the temps go up any more or if there are any other problems.

Like i said in my post above, you can corrupt your hard drives and screw up your video card , because you lack the important pci/agp lock.. i really wouldnt overclock that at all. and a 100mhz overclock isnt going to get you anywhere.

your best bet would be to look for a decent nforce2 board or upgrade mobo,proc and ram if you have the coinage
