This is very strange, I was redoing my OC from scratch, and noticed that after I save and exit the BIOS, the comp would not post and resets with stock values. I can change any value and it will boot into windows, except for when i try to change the FSB. Just to test, I upped it by 1mhz, and the same thing would happen. I tried this with voltages on auto, and manual as well.

Any ideas? I updated the BIOS already as well.

Try clearing the CMOS? I don't really see what would be causing the instability...you could also try running memtest to make sure it isn't faulty memory.

Agree, doesn't sound like battery.

Thanks for the input guys. The cmos jumper is in a difficult spot.. I will try it by removing the battery and replacing it. I will keep you posted!

I actually switched to an older BIOS, F14 to F6, as many said it was tried and true. I was able to raise the FSB, the computer booted fine, then I tried to take it a step higher, and it seems like the same thing is happening.

Right, well looks like I fixed it. I just had to turn off "USB legacy", and looks like its keeping the OC!
