Overclocking fail

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
The other day, while surfing the net, my comp suddenly turned off and restarted. After it reboot I get to the log in screen, type in my password, and it loads up my desktop but within a few seconds I get a blue screen. I got some of the codes off of the screen but after doing it a few times, I notice the codes are different each time. After a blue screen fail, after POST, it comes up with an overclocking fail screen. 2 options, go to setup or load default settings. Nothing in the BIOS is jumping out at me and choosing to load the default options does not change anything either. I am running an Intel Core i7 940 at 2.93, ASUS X58 P6T mobo. I have not changed anything hardware wise since I bought the comp in 2009 nor have I been in the case monkeying around. I was able to get it into safe mode to run the virus and nothing popped up. If anymore info is needed let me know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

So it runs bad or similar even after reverting to stock clocks? You might have corrupted something on the OS somehow or drive is going bad not fully sure.

Setting to default has not changed anything. I might not be selecting the right options in SETUP but choosing default settings has not helped.

Strange try putting the HDD into other PC and running disk check or similar to show any errors or bad sectors.

I was able to log in in safe mode and set a check disk on startup. Fixed some bad sectors but did not fix the big issue. The system is doing check disk again, not sure why, and when it is done I am going to go into safe mode and turn off non essential start up programs in msconfig and see if that helps or hurts.

try to boot up with a windows 7 boot disk and do a chsk disk there via command prompt.

Next BSOD write down the address that caused the error might help you determine what is wrong

OS is Vista.

I am trying to reinstall Vista. It gets to a certain point and then I get a error box winpeshl.exe which stops the install.

Frustrating. I don't mind sepnding money to replace parts or buy software, but not knowing what is wrong is starting to get me down. Ran memory diagnostic, everything is fine there, nothing on virus scan, disk check fixed the bad sectors, eliminated unescessary start up programs with msconfig still nothing. I am wondering if there is a hardware issue. At one point today on the overclocking failed screen there was a new message about CPU over temperature Error! My comp is water cooled. I only saw this message once out of all of these restarts.

Possible overheating? Try blowing out all the dust.
