Hey, I'm brand new at this, but I tried overclocking last night.I have a 9PJL Apogee Chaintech Motherboard. Changed my bios settings from running at 200MHz to 250MHz, thot this was cool as the max allowable was 400MHZ. My system had been crashing on startup and I hoped this would help. I saved and exited. When restarting my pc the usual beep i'd get wasn't there and the monitor wouldnt switch on, the on button on the monitor blinks the same way it does when i have a problem with the graphics card. Please Help

My friend, from to 200 to 250 mhz the jump is too big.

I am assuming you have an AMD processor.

I had a 2.2ghz processor running at stock 200mhz FSB. When overclocked to 220 I would reach 2.4ghz if my memory allowed me to do so.

250mhz of FSB in this case would mean that your processor went beyond its capabilities.

We could help you overclock it if you gave us detailed specs of your system.

And to solve your boot problem, open your case and take the CMOS battery out for 2 minutes, put it back in, and boot.

Intel Core 2 6400 2.1ghz / ASUS SLI Deluxe / 4gb DDR2 800 G.Skill / ATi Radeon HD 3870 512mb OC / 7 years old Seagate Barracuda 160gb 7200
