I was merrily experimenting with overclocking my computer and then wham! I booted into windows and nothing worked! I am new to overclocking and I am very scared for my computers life. I can't open the process manager, firefox, cpu-z, anythign! The only thing that loads is the Asus AI Probe or whatever. It tells me that everything is normal and the processor is under no load! But i can't open any progrmas! WHen I click on them the computer freezes! Please help I need suggestions!

Where you experimenting in the BIOS or in Asus AI OC software?<br />
<br />
If the BIOS, can you access it?<br />
<br />
If so, maybe resetting the to the Default Settings will help, or maybe you tried this already...

Turn off the computer, unpug it, and remove the battery on the motherboard. Wait 2 minutes wit hit out, popit back in and all should be fine. Or you could do a jumper cmos clear but i think the battery is easier to understand.<br />

go into msconfig and see if anything new appeared. I've had instances where similar things would happen because a junk program was starting itself through msconfig. Not all of you problems are necessarily OC related
