Comp won't boot after using Clockgen - Page 2

post #11 of 37
if you can, you could put the hdd into another computer and access your important data. So long as the computer its in doesnt try to boot from it, it should still access all the data just fine. After you pull the important files, you could just reformat it and fix the problem once and for all.

You could also get a liveCD with a linux distribution on it for free off the net, burn it to a CD, and have your computer boot the CD drive first. Its basically an OS on a disk. You could then access the drive using your own computer.

Problem with this, is that it won't help with anything beyond resetting BIOS settings, correct? BIOS settings aren't the problem. Clockgen is editing the BIOS automatically during the booting of Windows, which thus causes the crash. See what I'm saying?

I'd hate to do that live cd thing, but I'd hate to do your first suggestion even more. Thanks for the advice.

I'm still hoping for a way around this without needing to do those things. I wish there was a way to access the registry editor or msconfig startup from System recovery console...

Hey,

I have access to a linux based registry editor liveCD (thanks a lot orion, this is a big step in the right direction.)


I downloaded "Ultimate Boot CD," from http://www.livecdlist.com/?pick=All&showonly=rescue

...Now that I have access to the registry (somewhat)...Is there a way I can remove clockgen's parameters? Any ideas where it is located in the registry, as this console-based reg editor has no search.

Thanks for the help guys it is greatly appreciated.

Already did - and it doesn't matter... It's getting changed as soon as windows boots via, idk - registry? BIOS shows everything defaults....

Any specific Linux Live boot cd that I can use to access registry editor in a GUI? or just access the files on the harddrive - and be able to delete. Testdisk allows only to copy.

I'm still not even sure if clockgen is the absolute problem. Maybe my ram is fried?- Because RAM isn't used until the loading of windows, correct? But I didn't OC my ram that high... In fact, my Kingston 400mhz ram was underclocked to 300mhz ...

ERD Commander is extremely good for trying to bring back XP installs!

It has a very nice XP like GUI with all kinds of magical tools that may fix it!

Stick the hard drive in another PC as just a data drive and make sure it doesn't boot. get the files off it then reformat.

Alright, well I'm messing around with that ERD winternals 2005 program... It's running and everything... but still no real luck. I'm starting to believe it is a memory error as opposed to processor clocking error. I went into regeditor and took out all entries of clockgen and I found the program itself... Also checked the startup programs, and it wasn't on there. I found that odd.

So i did a system restore back to a point yesterday that i thought was prior to overclocking the computer.... Either system restore didn't do the trick, or I system restored to a point that was already overclocked..

Furthermore, i found it odd all my drive's letters are changed. My main drive was C:\\, now it's D, my second partition of drive C was G, but is now E, and my 80gig IDE with nothing on it is my C... I was thinking this is somehow related to booting from the winstaller cd...?

I finally got one of the helpful but scary BSOD's when rebooting from winternals. It was definitely a memory error - RAM I'm assuming with the memory addresses.

I'll either try restoring to an earlier point or.. hm I don't know..

PC3200 and PC2100 is DDR1 and with the odd speeds that could definately be an issue. Hope you get it resolved. I use da clockgen on an old 939 board that has no bios options. The settings would revert every time I rebooted. Other than benching there wasn't really a speed benefit.
