Hello,

I've been trying to overclock my E6550. Until now, I could never change it's clock because each time I change a value in bios the PC won't post. Now I could successfully change it from 333x7 to 444x7 which result in 3.12GHz and it is working. The PC posts, loads the hard drives and that and before appearing the windows vista loading logo and bar, it restarts the pc, posts again and keeps repeating this. What could the problem be?

These are the settings in bios i've set to:
