Blue Screens, BIOS Freezes, Wont Stop Unless CMOS Battery Reset

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am having a bit of an issue here. About a month ago my computer was acting up. I have not had this issue before and have the most up to date BIOS which were updated about two years ago. I have formatted my computer four months ago.

My computer is overclocked to 3.2ghz and had the same overclock for about two years and I had no issue. But recently every so often my computer will freeze up and I receive a blue screen that goes along the lines of dumping data or something for about ten seconds. Then my computer restarts and when I try to get into the BIOS and reset setting, it freezes . At first I thought it was corrupt BIOS or bad overclock but I had to remove my CMOS battery and put it back in and everything is alright. Then after about a week this exact thing happens again. I also ran Memtest and my RAM is fine

I really have no idea what is going on. Also, after the blue screen dump process, it will either restart at the boot screen either windows or the actual post. Or I have to keep restarting the computer and go to the BIOS and freeze in the BIOS itself.

I decided to bring my CPU back to stock settings just in case it might be my overclock. I am a beginner overclocker and have had the same setting for two years. I tried changing a few things such as upping my voltage and I still have the issue every week. So I have to remove my CMOS battery to fix the problem. I don't know if it is the overclock that causes the computer to blue screen, bios freeze,or restart constantly. Sometimes it wont boot at all until I remove the CMOS battery and put it back in.

Everything is fine right now after the reset and stock settings. It really sucks to be at 2.4ghz but I will see what happens. If this happens again it could not have been my overclock. What do you guys think it might be.

My specs are in my signature.

I will also post what my settings are when I had it overclocked as well as my CPU-Z validation

FSB- 400
Multiplier- 8.0
CPU Voltage- 1.325V

Dram set to 1066mhz (Based on OCZ Reaper stock specification)
-Manually at 5.5.5.15 (stock settings)
-RAM Speed : 533.3 MHz (3:4)
-Ram voltage Voltage set to auto

Did you redo your overclock after? thats what it sounds like.( re Read it... still sounds like Overclock.)

Pulling the CMOS battery is basically resetting the bios to factory specs.(no Overclock)

To me it sounds like you have a bad overclock. or your CPU is degrading.
EDIT: after you posted your OC settings i see your FSB is REALLY high. that might be it. your board might not be able to handle 400. drop it to around 375 and try

Well after I would do the CMOS reset, I would bring it back to my overclock and my computer would run fine for a week or so.

In the past when I had bad overclocks, I would get a post that tells me to press F1 to enter my BIOS settings or F2 to go back to stock settings.

I fixed it and have finally found a good and stable overclock for two years. Now all of a sudden, these issues happens and not only can I reset or edit my BIOS, but it freezes or constantly restarts at the boot screen or actual BIOS unless I unplug my computer and reset the CMOS battery.

Does anyone else have an idea what is wrong with my computer?

It would be much appreciated Thanks
