computer won't boot after overclock attempt... Help?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well i tried overclocking my q6600 to 3.0ghz. The only other thing i really changed was putting my memory into sync mode. I set the memory voltage to 2.0 (my memory is rated for between 1.9 and 2.1) changed the Vcore voltage to 1.3 And left everything else on auto. I also disabled the powersaving stuff the guide in this forum says to disable.

Now my computer hangs on the big Asus message, it says press del to access setup, but it doesn't work, and just sits there on that screen until i turn it off. I don't know what i could've possible done to end up with this result, my hardware tested solid, and i was under the impression 3.0ghz was a fairly mild overclock for the Q6600... so... is there anyway i can regain access to my computer? heh.

*edit* and every guide for this damn thing says that 'auto' tends to over estimate the voltage needed, that's why i left everything on auto. =(

Reset it by taking out the battery and disconnecting power for a few minutes.
Should go back to stock settings.

I don't see a battery (i can't find my manual) i found a pin that says reset, yanked it out, and stuck it back in. Didn't work. Yanked it out and left it out. Didn't work. YAnked it out and put it in the unused pins right above it... didn't work. How do i make it reset?

Ok, i found the correct jumper, i was using the wrong one before, and reset my bios. They work fine but now i'm getting a "no operating system" error. My HD's were in a RAID-0 config, i heard i would have to set that up again after a bios reset but don't know how to do it... i'm not going to lose everything on the drives, am i?
