Not sure if that tells you everything you need to know or not, has 750Wpro somthing psu "will open it up or whatever if u need to know more"


started by clearing up some hdd space deleted a few programes n files here and there nothing i thought was important *thinks it was still running good*

Then i found TurboV evo auto overclocking and without thinking to much i think this is where my problems begun, so i run an auto overclock to 3.8mhz or close to, ran fine for 10 mins , i go to bios and reset to default.

at the start i noticed high cpu temps reaching 80c i believe and did not want to fry anything so i dont know whats happend but now it locks up when i run alot *facebook+runescape will lock it up* but i can run skyrim no problems ect im sure its not just browser based the whole computer is unable to do jack when it locks up for approximatly 2 minutes before freeing itself,

I tried running halo online and it came up with a message saying i didnt have enough ram 0gb it said *game still worked and hadnt tried pre oc* so i downloaded a programme to watch the ram and cpu heat because the original coretemp i used to use says its now 0degresse celsios

with nothing but note book and this browser running im getting 26% ram used 4 cores unlocked bouncing at low levels 0 - 8 % all over idling .. coretemp isnt working still and when it locked up before i seen the cores spike to 90 - 100% in all four then while frozen back to low 0 - 8% then a bounce upto 70%ish all over then down to normal

i need help to make my computer stable and will help you out with whatever info you might need to help me, i appreciate you getting this far reading ill let you ask me questions now, thanks

I would start by re-flashing the latest bios for the board. It's possible that the reset to default didn't work like it was supposed to.

Your motherboard has EZ Flash2.

Download the BIOS file from asus.com

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M4A89GTD_PRO/#support_Download_30 (I hope the link works)

Unpack the .zip file and put the content on a USB stick.

Reboot the computer with the USB stick in a USB port and use the EZ Flash function in the BIOS to locate the BIOS file on the USB stick.

Select the file and follow the guide.
