Overclocking Problem

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Well I have read up on Overclocking recently, and all the details that everyone posts about is telling me to change options within the BIOS. But the problem with that is that when I go into my BIOS I have no option to change anything about my CPU. On my old PC you were able to do this under Power management, but the BIOS on this PC doesnt have that option. Please Help.

Hey Lemic, do you know how to post a screenie. If so, a screenie of your bios would help, so we can see where your options are. I have never had an MSI Mobo before, so I don't know what the bios looks like.

Hey Lemic, welcome to Overclock.net! hopefully we can help look for your question/problem. First, under the bios, look for a heading either called "Advanced Settings" or "Chipset Settings", I believe your model will have an whole separate Tab for overclocking settings, also, if you could, can you post a screen shot of your CPU information. Using a program called "CPU-Z", install it and take a screenshot. Best of luck

Ok well it seems that I cant screenie my BIOS, but here is a standard BIOS:
http://www.aoaforums.com/frontpage/i..._main_menu.jpg

The difference being that my BIOS doesnt have:
PnP/PCI Configuration
PC Health Status
Power Bios Features
Load Fail-Safe Defaults
Set User Password

So all in all my BIOS is very basic.
On my old pc I used to be able to overclock using the PC health status option. But I dont have it now.

Can anyone tell me how to get these options? or why I am missing them?

Well for the previous post the only option I have under Advance Chipset Features is: "System BIOS Cacheable" and the option to Enable and Disable.
