I Crippled my Computer!!!!!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was merrily experimenting with overclocking my computer and then wham! I booted into windows and nothing worked! I am new to overclocking and I am very scared for my computers life. I can't open the process manager, firefox, cpu-z, anythign! The only thing that loads is the Asus AI Probe or whatever. It tells me that everything is normal and the processor is under no load! But i can't open any progrmas! WHen I click on them the computer freezes! Please help I need suggestions!

Where you experimenting in the BIOS or in Asus AI OC software?

If the BIOS, can you access it?

If so, maybe resetting the to the Default Settings will help, or maybe you tried this already...

Turn off the computer, unpug it, and remove the battery on the motherboard. Wait 2 minutes wit hit out, popit back in and all should be fine. Or you could do a jumper cmos clear but i think the battery is easier to understand.

go into msconfig and see if anything new appeared. I've had instances where similar things would happen because a junk program was starting itself through msconfig. Not all of you problems are necessarily OC related
