Need help, windows restarting after login

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just overclocked my Asus 6600 last night to 350 Mhz. Yeah everything's peachy, worked fine for hours. But this morning I go to start up and the darn thing restarts everytime after being in windows for a few seconds. I try and hold down control to reset back to 300 Mhz, no go. I uninstall rivatuner in safe mode, thinking that is for sure. Again, no go. I'd check the speed on the g-card to make sure it's reset, but I can't stay logged in long enough to find a reading.
Is there any way I can make sure this thing is reset back to 300MHz? I'm in safe mode with networking right now so of course none of the forceware drivers are loaded.

Reset the CMOS. Look in your mobo manual for jumpers called CMOS something. They're usually right next to the CMOS battery. Take the jumper out and either put it into the next 2 pins or hold onto it for 5 seconds, then put it back into it's original pins. Also try to take out the CMOS battery itself for 5 seconds or so.

That actually worked. I didn't think resetting the cmos would have done anything but, here I am. Thanks greatly!
