Power went out and then BIOS said overclock failed

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
The power in our house went out while my PC was running a game. When it came back on, it said overclocking failed on the startup screen.

I should add that last week I tried to OC with AMD VISION ENGINE and it actually ended up underclocking my CPU so I went to my BIOS and turned the frequency back to stock speeds.

My CPU is an 8350.

What should I do?

Oh and I disabled CPU overclock in AMD VISION ENGINE and I just allowed my GPU factory overclock.

Dont use software to overclock. Try to read threads or ask advice on the 8350 thread about overclocking. Only use bios settings.

Just go back into the BIOS and make sure all the settings are how you want them. Due to the power failure, it just thought the PC didn't boot successfully.

Usually the BIOS will keep your settings and you just need to save and exit, but it may have reset them to some default profile.
