Have you tried pulled the cmos battery to reset the bios? Give that a go and see if it works.

My cooller is attached to the motherboard by 4 pins each on one corner of the Heatsink. Although one of the pins is slightly damaged and i'm not using any thermo-paste right now. I don't think that the problem is in the overheating of the cpu, because i think that it can't reach high temperatures in 15 seconds after start up.
Sometimes it just loades normally and turnsdown. Sometimes a American Trends icon show-up and then sais "Overclocking or overvoltage failed,... f1 and f2.. etc."
I have an ASUS P5LD2-V motherboard and an Intel CPU with a Intel Heatsink and fan.
Is there anyone able to give me some kind of help to solve this problem ? Thanking you for your kind attention and hoping to read you soon, I send you my best ! almoste
