'Warning! CPU has been changed. Please re-enter the CPU settings in the CMOS setup

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone for the 1st time!

I have been trying to overclock my amd 64 3400+ and have done so with success b4 getting it to 2.7ghz on air alone.Then I did memtest and found I had a bad stick of ram.I replaced the ram.Now and when I try to overclock my cpu I get this "'Warning! CPU has been changed. Please re-enter the CPU settings in the CMOS setup" the message also states that if I continue it will be in safe mode which underclocks my cpu from 2.0ghz to 1.8ghz.I have no idea what to do.I can leave my cpu at stock settings and my rig will run fine but where is the fun in that .Does anyone know how I can overcome this little obstacle and get right back into the thick of things?

Have you tried simply reseting the CMOS ?

All you need to do is pull the battery out for about 5 minutes, then it resets it to stock

To be safe, do this :
Take of all power cables
First, remove the CMOS battery
Press the power button (so that any left current dies)
Then, move the jumpers one place, leave it for a second or two, and put them back to the original place.
Put back CMOS battery, and you should be ok !

Ok I unplugged everything and took out the cmos battery.Started it up and still got the warning msg.Then what I did was reset my memory timings to cas 3 ,4,4,8 and upped my cpu clock to 232, 11x.Now the question is my memory says its supposed to be cas 2.5 ,3,3,6 on the package and when I run memtest with those settings its solid but my Mother board defaults to 3,4,4,8.If I change my memory to what the package says it wont let me oc my cpu but if I leave them on the default setting I can.Any suggestions?

Your memory probably can't work on stock timings if overclocked, unless maybe if you raise Voltage on memory which could result in higher teperatures of memory.
