Why? The information you need is already here in the forums. You are overclocking your system too high. Back off of the OC a bit until it's fixed.

Forums are for getting help. PM's are only for passing along personal information that shouldn't be posted in public. Help like this belongs out in the open where others can chime in with their thoughts and expertice. I understand the basic principles of OverClocking, but I have absolutely no personal experience with Core i processors and their bios settings, and especially with Asus motherboards (I avoid Asus mobo's like the plague).

I'm gonna run it at stock settings until I have more time to deal with this, thanks for the advice. I also ran sfc /scannow and got the msg "Found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them". When I try to open up the log at c\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log it says access denied.

If sfc /scannow does that you need to do one of three things. First run the chkdsk /r then re-run sfc /scannow. If that doesn't help then you need to do a repair install of your OS or just byte the bullet and install your OS from scratch. Please take note that if you have used any of the hacks to circumnavigate Windows Activation that will case sfc /scannow to fail and there is NOTHING you can do to fix that other than use a legal and legitimate copy of Windows and it's Product Key.

Yeah, that's the spelling I was too lazy to look up. "DesQView", and you did need to have QEMM installed to run it. himem.sys evenually put those guys out of need, and bussiness.

I just found it funny at how a single old school dos command garnered such reverence among the plebes.

Checks all your system files for data corruption or "system integrity". If it finds any, it tries to fix them.

Just fyi, if you have even a 120gb ssd like, me disk check only took me a whopping 20sec to complete, where-as on my 1TB HDD it took 2+ hours lachen.gif

Hopefully you know what a disk check is tongue.gif.

They are both basically checking for data corruption, one in protected system files, the other on the entire disk.

You do NOT have a video issue. You have an Overclocking issue that is preventing the system from posting. It has nothing to do with your operating system so this will not have any impact on it. You need to redo your bios settings as one or more of them are incorrect. It could be somethinglike not having enough vcore, having too much vcore, incorrect ram timings, not enough vdimm, too high of a fsb setting, or any number of other settings. The display problem really isn't the problem, just a symptom. There is no monitor problem. If you have a speaker connected to the motherboard (not in the back but a case speaker connected directly to the mobo by the power on switch wires) it should beep once when it posts. If it doesn't beep at all then you know it didn't post. It's also quite possible that it will beep multiple times in one pattern or another that will tell you what type of failure you are having.

The beeps is exactly how I got to know it was an issue with the ATI card not powering up, which prevented bios to post and thus not turning on my monitor. After reading some on the ATI forums I discovered there were some others having the same issue with a 57xx or 58xx type ATI, with a 4-pin PCI-E connector.
I also got the overclock failed press F1 blabla after post, so I loaded defaults but the issue kept on returning, without any oc.
So I borrowed a NVIDIA card from a friend for a couple of weeks (a HEAVIER ONE), and it didn't happen once. So I knew in one blow it wasn't the PSU either.
Even now, every time I do a cold boot, the pc switches off after a few seconds, and powers on again without making POST and the monitor stays off. after that, turning the PSU power switch off and on again, it finally posts, with or without a IBT 50runs and prime95 24h stable oc. When not oc'ed though the issue is LESS frequent. In my case it IS the damned ATI card, and his issue sounded exactly the same to me, and I noticed he had a similar ATI card, so I drew a conclusion.
If he experiences the same wacky stuff when cold booting, like the pc turning off and on again on its own while the monitor stays off/no post, he should definitely look into this, and at least borrow an NVIDIA or something from someone to test this out and try and oc again then. I'll bet with an nvidia, he will see the issue vanish without a trace.

Are you using HDMI or DisplayPort on the ATI card?

Tried both. I also have a HP monitor which is DVI. Doesn't make difference. Only swapping the graphics card.
