My computer needs to reboot bofore actually booting...

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I once overclocked my Pentium 4 (2.66 Ghz) to run at 4.66 Ghz and it was stable when running video games and intense programs. I never really tested the stability though since I didn't even know I was overclocking because one day it just said 4.66 Ghz . But before I could boot up my computer, I must reboot it since I get a black screen . When I play videogames, I never got a blue screen of death . Some one tell me if the rebooting could harm my computer...


and also....
I was running my computer at 4.66 Ghz for like 6 months and nothing happened to my CPU or anything. It didn't look like there was any physical damage

Rebooting will never harm your computer and I'm curious as to how your P4 magically changed to 4.66GHz

I hate to spread doubt as to your claim of 4.6, but without very high end cooling, and the technical know how, there is no way you got that chip to 4.6. Also, your father doing it, and then forgetting... overclocking is not something you forgot lol.
