lanparty p45-t2rs jr, intell core2duo e8500, overclocking and windows 7?

hi all,

new to the boards, please be gentle. also, i've tried wrapping my head around OCing to no evail. I had someone help me a few years ago but ever since i upgraded to win7, it doesn't seem to like my OC settings. i'm willing to paypal a pro $20 if they could help me out.

if someone is willing to help, we could take this offline and i'd be forever grateful. again, i'm just an idiot on OC and need someone to hold my hand. windows 7 hangs when i try my original xp overclock settings. my system specs are:

lanparty p45-t2rs jr.
intel core2duo e8500 @ 3.16 (i was OC to 4)
dd2-1066

These are the instructions I was given years ago:

In BIOS Select "Genie BIOS settings" and then Press "N" for the "Easy
Mode" (I don't think you'll need any of the advanced options)

Enter the "CPU Feature" sub menu.
Disable "PPM(EIST) Mode" and "CIE Function". (These can all play
havok when your overclocking, but you can try re-enabling them again
after your happy that the system is stable.)

Then jump back to the "Genie BIOS settings" menu, and Enter the "DRAM
Timing" sub menu.

Set the options as follows:
"CAS Latency Time(tCL)" to 5
"RAS# to CAS# delay (tRCD)" to 5
"RAS# Precharge (tRP)" to 5
"Precharge Dey (tRAS)" to 15
all other setting leave as auto.

Then jump back to the "Genie BIOS settings" menu, and Enter the
"Voltage Setting" sub menu.

Set the options as follows:
"CPU VID Special Add" to "+150.0mV"
"DRAM Voltage Control" to 2.1v.
"NB Core Voltage" 1.1825v
"Vcore drope Control" to enabled.
Leave all other setting as stock.

Then jump back to the "Genie BIOS settings" menu.


Set the options as follows:
"O.C. Fail retry Counter" to 2
"O.C. Fail CMOS Reload" Enabled
"CPU N/2 Ratio" to disabled
"CPU Clock Ratio" 9.0X
"CPU Clock" to 445MHz
"DRAM Speed" to 333/800
"PCIE Clock" to 100 Mhz

save and exit

C2D are pretty easy to tune. Please tell us your target OC and list all the settings in your bios for the CPU voltage screen if possible.
These E8500's can almost do 4.0ghz at stock voltage.

oh boy, do i feel like an idiot. what i thought was a win7 lock up turned out to be nothing but an extended desktop (my card feeds my monitor and also a projector). my settings were fine all along.

but, thank you for the response and my apologies for the wasted post.
