Constant problem when computer turns on. - Page 2

post #11 of 14
If your IDE hard drive is showing up as a CD ROM drive try running "chkdsk /f Drive letter" in the command prompt. Your hard drive might have gone corrupt which has happened to me so many times (except it doesn't show up as a CD drive for me) from using an external docking station.

Thanks for the advice.
Me being power hungry led me to overclock my system again, this time to 4GHZ redface.gif
It failed to overclock and the system wouldn't restart, i removed the CMOS Battery, booted it up without it, I then turned it off again, then put the CMOS battery back in and then after this my system seems to be working flawless ever since.
I probably had a bad OC and at the momment my system is overclocked again at a stable clock of 3.7Ghz.

Strangely enough It's running great and I enjoy and kind of "require" the quad core.
I must of messed up a BIOS setting previously and by removing the CMOS it reverted to It's defaults.

I've restarted my system a lot in the days It's been working and this problem is yet to surface. I'd say another week to be able to give my verdict on If my system is "normal" again.
Thanks for the help everyone, I'll return If the problem has been fully resolved to my understanding to help those in the future who may encounter this.

The problem has appeared again unfortunately, I'm going to try those suggestions in this thread and take a look at the event viewer also thanks.
