No boot after Failed OC attempt, help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi again guys, Ok I'm having Big problems. ( Sig Rig )
I was trying to OC higher to get better scores for HWbot, and after a Failed attempt to boot only at 2.9ghz.

This happen 4 hours ago so I realy don't remember settings I think it was something like 1650Fsb with a Multi of 7.

Now here is where it gets intresting.
The boot failed on windows load screen. OK no biggie I can still get into Bios right? WRONG !

When I reset the computer it shut down But when I turned it back on All lights/fans everything came on for a split second then powered backdown.
Ok so I reset CMOS, still same thing.

I tried holding the power button which seemed to help and it Booted, but said please reseat Cpu or Ram or set to factory freq or something to that effect. OK went into bios set the normal things boot order ect.. DID NOT O/c saved and exited.

Boom, it powers down again this time when I held the power button it would stay powered on until I let it go. Well It didn't boot this time from me holding the power buton like the first time. So reset Cmos once more and tried again.
By this time I'm a little agrovated

After a bunch of times failed, I got it to boot again (holding the power button) I loaded boot order, saved and exited. This time it loaded windows.

Everything was ok in windows ran orthos at stock temps were fine, I even ran a game.
Ok? lets try and reboot only to find it's doing the same thing. But I can't get into Windows or Bios.

So... I disassembled the Entire Pc, top to bottom and still does the same thing.
I am realy Stumped here guys any advice you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Sorry about the long thread. I just hope/didn't want to leave anything out so you guys can help me to the fullest. I'm on my old computer which does not have my life saver, Google spell check so please if I made errors I apologize

Sounds like either the power button or the power supply. Try starting the computer with a screwdriver or something similar by shorting the pins that the power button usually connects to.

I like PR1M3R's idea. That is what crossed my mind when I was reading your thread.

I have an Evga 680i A1. I have noticed that if I change the processor speed >right after a cmos clear<, my system will power down after I save the settings. However if I just wait a couple seconds, the system will power back on itself and my BIOS settings will be changed. This only happens once but every time right after I clear the CMOS.

Perhaps that's what you're encountering, at least with the BIOS.

Nope. No problems there.


Stupid as it sounds but I pushed the power button when Unplugged from the wall (deenergized it) and that seems to have fixed it

Thank Phillipjos

Now does anyone think when this happen and my Pc would not boot, my sound card could have got screwed up??
I mean everything was fine until the problems in this thread. When I finally got it too boot my sound crapped out.

I ran DCpro a few times un-installed and reinstalled drivers a bunch of times also nothing seems to fix it.
