Pretty Urgent! Nasty HDD? Error after overclock - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
the underclocking didnt work... went into BIOS and the minimum setting is the default - 200 clock speed with 15 multiplier it wont let me go any lower... i only put it up to 213 clock do this is it worth putting it back to this to see if it does anything i really dont know much about the specifics of overclocking done it on a couple of my old PCs before but only for about 50Mhz extra not 200Mhz like this one i didnt think it would be a problem... im gonna leave it to the experts next time

hey guys just managed to get the system up and running finally i was just double checking all the BIOS settings and i changed a few i think my onboard RAID had suddenly set itself to IDE mode not RAID somehow no idea how it happened but i am gonna go backup all my stuff now and my BIOS data aswell. I feel like such an idiot now sorry if i wasted your time.

Thanks a lot for helping tho everyone i wouldnt have noticed that little setting if it werent for your suggestions.

I'm glad you resolved your issues. Don't let this experience keep you from overclocking in the future. I would suggest that you up your system clock only 3-5 MHz at a time, though, to make sure your system is stable (there are lots of little tweaks to do along the way). Baby steps are definitely the way to go.
