HUGE problem, killed my computer??? please help !!! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Yeah , what they ^ said. Did your comp. come with the motherboard manual? it says in there where the "jumper" is, which is just roughly 3 pins which a cap on 2 of the pins. You move the cap on the other two pins for, my mobo manual states atleast 30seconds to 1minute. Then put it back and boot up. that should work. same thing happened to me.

I don't think it has to be for 30min to 1hour, that seems wayyyy to long.

Thankyou thankyou thankyou for the help

Up and running now, figured the Cmos was covered by something as i couldnt see it (maybe behind the gtx480 lol

Anyway, there was a handy "reset" button, pushed that, made some noise and now shes fine


Problem was I changed the frequency of the ram to 2000... didnt like that.

I dont know what frequency it should be on, can you help me ?

Its 6gb ddr3 hynix ram, 1333mhz, but i dont see 1333mhz in the cmos options, i picked 1144 or something right now, and its working..

Thanks (:

Hey man, first off, you didn't break anything, if you don't see fire and smoke, the PC is fine. after you have had a cup of coffee and chilled out, open up your pc, ground yourself by touching the metal part of your power supply ( the box where the power cable goes into), and locate your motherboard. find the battery

Thanks adizz for the image

Now, gently prize it out with your fingers, don't use metal, i am not sure of the results, and leave it on a bench for 10 minutes. shove it back in the PC, and then reboot. if it still shows symptoms, which it shouldn't, just take out the ram.

Did you adjust the voltages? if not, your rig is fine.

But yes, once you figure out whats actually inside your computer or how long you have had it reset the CMOS.

Lol, well, my first computer, upto a month ago, was a stock dell dimension 2400 (had it since 2003)

So since only a month have a i had a decent setup, im still learning it, and how technology has changed

You could set the RAM to 1333 manually in the BIOS.
Also, if its 1333 RAM and you tried to force it to 2000 its no wonder it wouldn't boot. I would be surprised if you could boot at over 1400.
A word of advice:
Research tweaks before you try them.
It will save you a massive heart attack and it will save you money on broken parts.

EDIT:
Good new rig. But be careful with it. those are some expensive parts. Dont go fiddling with stuff if you dont know what it will do.

Yeah, sadly for me, learning means experiencing hands on, which when you have overclocking, could end bad...

I got lucky this time, will make sure next time the research info i use is closer to my setup xD

Thanks for the tip aswell, i succesfuly overclocked the gtx480

and the i7 950 (4.2ghz)

Well its late here so im of 2 bed, thankyou thankyou ppl for the help
