ASUS P8P67 Boot Loop - Page 2

You had an unstable overclock, and upon crash, the OS corrupted most likely. Simply stay at stock settings and do a reinstall of Windows, or a repair if you can.

That is not exactly the greatest thing to hear but no biggie. Just another thing I would rather not have to worry about, but thats better than having a bad mobo.

This is my first time doing an overclock so pardon my knowledge, but can the overclock really become unstable after 7 months of no problems? I just find that weird that it can be perfectly fine and then all of the sudden I cannot even boot up. Thank you for the information, I will try a repair first.

Maybe your overclock was not stable in the first place, how did you test for stability if you don't mind me asking?

There are many factors to an overclock, many variables. I don't think I've ever heard of degredation over a 7 month period, but it's possible depending what voltage you were running at 4.5. We really won't know if it was simply just that until you get things up and running on the software side again.

I ran a program, I forget the name but its a popular stress tester, for a couple hours without any issues. I had tried several other clocks and noticed when they were unstable. As I said I am new to OCing so I would definitely not rule out user error here. I know that for 7 months I have not had a single crash while playing several demanding games.

I think I had left the voltage up to the BIOS. I remember trying several settings and various things, but I am not 100% sure what voltage I was running.

Regardless, let us know when things are up & running. You should have no issue if it was an unstable OC and it corrupted the OS, hopefully repairable.

Well I tried doing a system repair and restore, but both were uneventful. I downloaded Ubuntu onto a CD and just threw that in. So far it seems as if Ubuntu is working fine. I guess this is enough to say the OS has become corrupted and I will need to reformat right?

Sadly, looks like you have no other option but to reformat :/
