Booting Problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a bit of a problem. First off, I don't currently have a working DVD-ROM because it decided to quit on me a week ago.
My problem is I was trying to OC my EE955 in my BIOS and it won't boot anymore. To go into further detail, I raised my fsb from 300 to 333 with a multiplier of 13 (kinda stupid to go that far at once, I know, but I was running it at 333x12 just fine). Anyways, I made my changes, and reset the system. It then POSTed but then shut off again. I turned it back on and it wouldn't even post until I tried it again. Thats when I set all the BIOS settings back to default, reset and everything but it still wont boot. THe problem is, I am running my os on a RAID 0 array on an ICH7R and it won't recognize it to boot on anymore. Does this mean I have to reload Windows, reinstall my RAID again, and lose all my data? Please help! Thanks

Unlikely you would have lost any infomation, so don't panic there, you may have got a corrupt boot sector, but normally again thats does not happen.
Most case a reset of the bios will do it, and some times a bios reset it different, on my system i turn it on and then then hold in the power button to switch it off, i do this 3 times, and it will soft reset my bios to the last known working bios setting, also on another board i need to swap the pins over on jp1 for more than 5 seconds to get it to work, i even left it for 5 minutes. Double check that there is no other bios reset, as that is 90% the case of the issue, if you unable then you could try booting from CD and try a repair only. Again this maybe a issue as your drive not working right now.

Usually if you overclock your system too much, the computer will refuse to boot, and sometimes the bios will also revert back to it's default settings just so your computer can boot up again.
