Another Noob who wants some help please...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Thanks first of all. I filled out my specs when I registered (as much as I knew anyway), so please let me know if I left out some vital info.
Trying very hard to Overclock but too stupid to do it all by myself.
I cant adjust my Bios. and when I tried "Clockgen" it knew my pll but when I tried to set the "new" settings nothing changed.
So..........any ideas on where to start?

No, he means is it like a Dell, HP, etc.? Because if it is, overclocking it is going to be next to impossible.

If it is a Dell, HP, etc then you're not going to be able to overclock it. Other than possibly adjusting jumpers on the motherboard, if available.

Not exactly screwed.
They do this so they won't have to deal with any possible problems created by overclocking any part of your computer.

I believe that's a nForce 4 chipset with intergrated graphics. Who produced your motherboard? Is there any branding on it at all?
