Athlon II X2 250 voltage problem

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I noticed the voltage on my cpu was 1.425 stock I thought that was a tad high so I went into BIOS and lowered it down to 1.350 after that change the computer shut down right away and now it will no longer boot it turns on but I can't seem to get it to boot nor can I power it off with the power switch.

I've tried to reset the CMOS with the jumper on the mobo and taking out the battery for 5-10mins and letting it sit and then putting it back in but no boot what so ever.

I don't wanna think I fried my cpu by lowering my voltage is this possible?

Little update I suppose I removed the CPU from the mobo and now I get more than just 1 light being on it has 6 LED's when the CPU is in I just get 1 light indicating Phase Active with it out I get 4 of them but I still got the 2 most important lights off which doesnt really help because it signifies CPU / Chipset error so I'm guessing its either the mobo or cpu thats bad but how do I tell which and why would lowering my voltage cause any of this .

when you removed the battery and used the jumper to clear CMOS,did you have the power cable unplugged from the PSU?

Alright I've tried two times already letting the battery sit for longer and waiting longer between the times of clearing the CMOS through the jumper but I'll try it again can't hurt I suppose.

when you remove the battery,there is no need to use the clear CMOS jumper.
