reset cpu settings in bios help

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, i was wondering if you could help me. My brother was playing around with my pc yesterday... I came in to find he was on the amd controll centre cpu auto-tune!! I kicked hin off and saw that it was still tuning up, way over 5.2mhz, and still climbing! So i stopped the auto-tune, as expected it bluescreened, then restarted.

My cpu was then showing in amd, my computer, and cpu-z as 5.1 mhz... And for the life of me i couldnt get amd auto-tune to unclock. So i loaded into bios, and load defult cmos.

I then restarted but now my quad core only runs at 2.82 mhz!!

Can you help me reconfigure my settings please?

Amd quadcore fx-4170
gigabyte ga-78lmt-usb3 rev 4.1 bios f2
Windows 7 64bit
8gb ram
400w unbranded psu.

And yes i punched him.. Hard....

Will it be easy to reclock? As the cpu is unlocked.

Or should i say undo any clocking and make it the standard shipped 4.2 again

Step 1:
Open case

Step 2:
Find Bios battery What it looks like (Click to show)

Step 3: pull it out

Step 4: leave it out for 5-10 minutes

Optional
Step 5:
dont overclock with that setup. an unknown psu is bound to cause trouble and that board doesnt look good at all.

Unnecessary. Should only be last resort.

Just go into bios, go to the far right tab look for a thing called "Load UEFI Defaults" click it, then save and exit. I am assuming your PC downclocked everything due to failed OC. That should fix the problem.
