First try putting your computer back to default settings and see if that works. Sometime when you push your processor, memory, etc too far unusual things happen like what you are experiencing. Like when I push my memory too far my computer indicates that windows is corrupt and unable to load. I back my memory settings down a little bit and voila, my computer works flawlessly again. Reseting your CMOS as someone has suggested will accomplish the same thing. Try to set to default, then reset your CMOS, then try memory scenerio suggested by Ropey, then try reseating your CPU.
