Overclockers Nightmare

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I recently made a post in the CPU section asking about how to overclock,
impatient to get some useful replies - I went ahead and overclocked it myself without really knowing what I was doing.

*NOOB ALERT*


I went into my MSI bios, enabled peformance mode, increased my CPU speeds by 11% and increased something that was 200 to 212.

Well guess what?

My motherboard is having issues, my 1 month old asus 8800GS is DEAD... I tried using a perfectly working 7300 - but now my computer gets up to the windows logo and resets..over and over. And I cannot access safe mode.

Bios settings are reset to default, but still no change.

Lesson learned: IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING, DON'T DO IT !

You can always try resetting the BIOS using the board jumper. Then try updating BIOS if that doesn't help. Lastly, try to update your 8800 (if possible).

Good luck, don't get down about it.

Presuming when you said BIOS is reset to default, you meant you've left the CMOS battery out overnight, have you tried flashing the BIOS? Download the flash from another PC, and then use a disc/usb stick to flash it. Worth a shot

First.....WHAT was 200 and is now 212?

Second......windows restarting over and over can mean a million things, one of those things being that the installation simply got corrupt. So don't panic. Try booting to a live CD of your favorite linux distro (If you don't have a favorite, try SuSe). If it boots, you probably just need to reinstall windows and everything will be fixed.

Third.......if your video card died when you tried to overclock from your system BIOS, that probably means that you increased the PCIe frequency too high. Did you make sure it was dead by trying it on another known working PC?

Something multiplier. =/ I'm not sure.

You know, I don't think I overclocked the PCIe.
Well, whenever I put the video card into the computer in either PCIe slot, it makes a loud beeping noise upon startup.

I put in my ancient 7300 card and it worked fine. I'm pretty sure this means the card is dead, right?

I don't know if resetting the bios will do much, I've already reset it to 'fail-safe defaults', with no change.

Thanks for the replies !

well your pcie frequency should not have been at 200 so im thinking its something like internal clock freq (i think for amd)

If you go into the bios via the 7300 card can you see what the thing was you changed?

adjusting anything but pcie freq would not affect card... pcie freq above 115 will have this kind of effect...


do you smell burnt plastic on the card?
