Computer wont post when restarted

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
My computer wont boot (post) when restarted using windows
start --> turn off --> restart

The computer fails to post, its powered but my screen goes black and fails to load

However this is after testing for a stable overclock using orthos for an hour
My system boots fine when i press the power button and im good to go
This is when overclocking only!


Edit - i dont have any cleaning or thermal paste so i cant reset HSF and i am using low setting fans



System
e7200
MSI P45 NEO
2GB Geil black dragon
antec 900 low fan setting
hd 4850

So it only posts when you power on from the power button, and freezes when restarted in windows, correct?

Try lowering the OC, or increasing the vcore a little; could be an unstable OC?

correct, it freezes at startup when restart by windows.
It will only post when i press the power button, ie on/off

FIXED:
It must have been an unstable overclock
Reason: I underclocked to 2.8 ran orthos restarted and it was fine
I loaded windows and restarted again and it preceeded to be fine.

Thanks, is it ok if i make this an ongoin overclock thread?

Seems 2.8 is the max my stock voltage holds

I did this at 1 increment to the voltage and restarted and get the same problem

I upped the voltage 2 more notches to about low 1.2's and it still did it

i even upped the voltage to 1.26 and it doesnt want to restart properly @ 3ghz 1:1 ratio
Could i need up up the voltage on mch or another part? i already give it 3 increments and the problem is persistent

Raising the voltage on
MCH
ICH
VTT

enabled me to boot and restart but i dont know if its safe voltage or not, where can i check the voltages for the above, they have only been raised 3 notches but they COMBINED seem to have fixed it, will repeat restarting using power button damage my computer in anyway?

Tried 3.6 and it fails instantly in blend and small fft - upped the vcore to 1.36 and it still failed so what can i do?

Upp the mch or ich or vtt, do they help stabalise the OC, i dont want to raise voltage any higher until i can reseat my HSF as 56 is looking high and intels max volt is 1.36

This is the screenshot continued from the post above - guess it wasnt stable, is this due to ram or cpu - i cba doing a 2hour small fft test lol so can you tell me by the error?

does that mean my core0 is unstable and core1 is stable?
