help! I crippled my 4800+ X2...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well, i read an entire article about overclocking the AMD 4800+ X2, which is what i have, so i went into bios and changed the Mhz to 400, and the CAS latency to 2.0.
Now the screen wont even come on. The Computer starts.. but nothing happens on the screen... i only went up 1 step! Ugh.. sudgestions?

Clear the CMOS, or take the little battery out for about 30 minutes put it back in and begin ocing it again with baby steps

Upped the FSB to 400mhz!?!? Here's what you do...give me your motherboard name and I can help you. OR, you could type in "*your motherboard name* Reset CMOS" in google

Pull out your motherboard manual and check the jumpers spot. Reset cmos is what you need. Its as easy as taking a piece of rubber up, putting it on a different spot, and putting it bacl

Well thats the thing... i only moved it up to the next step. It starts at 333Mhz, and the next step is 400Mhz. I have a Coolermaster Liquid Cooling system.. so i dont know why there should be a problem with such a small increase...

thats 77xYour multipler. Thats a large jump, are you using auto overclock settings? Don't! Read up on overclocking first

haha that's not a small increase on an AMD that's a huge jump! You should only move it 2-3 and then see if it'll post

When you clear the Cmos you turn off your computer...Flip the switch on the power supply and move the jumper...flip the switch back to On on the powersupply..then turn it off again and put the jumper back to it's original position. and restart

We need to know what kind of motherboard you have so that we can show you were the cmos jumper is

Fill out your system specs in the mean time under quick links, edit profile, system specs. Knowing what motherboard you have will allows us to help you with this problem, as it will allow us to pull up the pdf of the instruction manual so we can tell you what to do (more specifically, where the correct cmos reset jumper is). Also, im not sure that you are adjusting the correct settings, most motherboards allow you to adjust the FSB in 1mhz increments.

You guys are all wrong! He said "I moved it from 333 to 400 MHz, the next step". The FSB starts at 200, and the next step is 201. What he has done, is changed his RAM multi.

Here is what you need to do: Clear the CMOS (as stated above) by removing the batery with the power unpluged and leaving it out for about 30 mins. When you put it back, the BIOS will be reset. Then, in the BIOS, look for somthing like "FSB: " and change that setting. It will be at 200 by defualt, and you want to increase it by 3-4 increments at a time.

What you did was try to overclock your RAM, which is much harder and gives much less performance by its self.

ok i think he is talking about his ram settings, it sounds like he is changing his ram timings divider not his fsb hence why he crashed out right away

bartista- go to the top right corner where it says QUICK LINKS and click on USER CONTROL PANEL and fill in the system specs in there

now you need to take a look in your bios and make sure that your adjusting the right settings

first go to your ht setting or htt and it chould have a setting of 1x 2x 3x 4x 5x or with the asus it may be like 100 200 300 400 500 and set that at 3x or the middle one

now you can rasie your fsb which will havve numbers from like 120 up to like 400+ in increments of like 1 or 2 (this is what will oc your cpu), now you have a multi setting also that your fsb is multiplied by i would leave that at its max which is like 11 for that guy i think or maybe 12

then you have to go into your ram settings and that has the 266,333,400 settings in it leave that at like 333 for now

edit: lol soadmtgguy you beat me to it
