Reset your CMOS.
Tip: If you don't know how to overclock, don't.
And for another tip if you're a beginner...
Don't bother overclock the PCI bus speed. Look and see if your motherboard locks the CPU overclock from affecting the bus, if it doesn't then go back and manually change the bus speeds back to default (PCI=33, AGP=66, PCI-E=100). The gains (or lack thereof) are not worth the risks or time involved in overclocking the buses.
thanks for the replys mine is PCI-E which it was at a 100, but my board has AI overclock on it i.e 5 ,10,20% but i just done it manually at i read that my CPU has a max speed of 3700 mhz but im only using 2600 mhz so i was just seeing how much i could get out of it without damaging the CPU but any way thanks for the help
Okay, I need help from someone, anyone. My computer's been doing some strange things lately, namely: pops up a butt-load of bsod's, shuts itself down intermittently, has to close programs to write error reports for loads of things, and comes up with error messages stating how my system (or windows, rather) had to recover from a serious error, or something of that sort. I have not OC'ed it, or messed with any of the standard settings. I run virus scans, etc, checked the HDD for damaged sectors, and so forth, no dice. I have no clue what's wrong with it, but when the error reports come up it includes some TEMP files with the report. I'm using Windows XP SP3. My knowledge is limited and I'm running short on nerves right now; I'd appreciate any enlightenment.TRUE STORY||Talisman once bet NASA they could survive re-entry without a spacesuit. On July 19th, 1999, a naked Talisman re-entered the earth's atmosphere, streaking over 14 states and reaching a temperature of 3000 degrees. An embarrassed NASA publically claimed it was a meteor, and still owes Talisman a beer.
Erm....something could be failing...the hard drive or video card.
Sorry I can't be of more help...it hasn't happened anymore, thankfully. I don't know if one of the cables was getting knocked loose or what...every now and then, the PC would shut down, and I don't mean shut down correctly. It would BSOD, then everything would go down except for the HDD lights, etc., on my case. I would even have difficulty restarting the computer. I wasn't able to catch what the errors were on the BSOD, so I turned off the auto shutdown feature, but it hasn't happened again, yet. *Crosses fingers*
EDIT: I'd restart and it would freeze before the BIOS could load up, sometimes it made a series of beeps. Eventually I could get it to start in Safe Mode.TRUE STORY||Talisman once bet NASA they could survive re-entry without a spacesuit.

Hoping someone can help. My laptop got rushed by some viruses, so I decided to do a system restore; however it seems that the virus disabled it. I wanted to reinstall my copy of windows; however my cd drive was broken from little brothers playing with it weeks ago. Is my only choice ripping the iso, bringing it to my laptop and using daemon tools and/or getting an illegal copy?
IMO, here are some options you could try out.
1. Get a new optical drive.
2. See if your laptop can boot from USB devices and try using an external cd/dvd rom drive.
3. Install the OS through a USB Flash Drive (again if your laptop allows booting from USB devices).
4. Connect the laptop HD up to a desktop using an IDE converter (or put it in another laptop if you want) and try installing that way. This may not work when you transfer the HD back over but if it's an option go for it.
Another option if you have a floppy drive is to obtain the 6 disk floppy bootdisk setup at the link below and start your installation from there. This should prepare the drivers and then allow your external to work since it's not recognizing from boot now.
You're free to try whichever method(s) you seem fit. I wish I had a bit more knowledge to help diagnose the original external drive problem as it is right now, but I believe the floppy method would cure that. The flash drive method seems like the easier route though if you have one handy.
EDIT: Just realized you never specified if you were using XP or Vista, which would be useful as the links I provided were for XP *prays you're using XP to help you solve this*.
Thanks a lot. I am using Xp, and I'm currently preparing the flash drive. I'll edit to say if it worked or not.
I'm gonna rep you right now, and probably give you all my skill points if it works.
Oh wow. It's not working. If I reformat the drives do you think the virus will be gone? Also, do you know how I could do that?'
EDIT1: NTLDR is missing... what?
EDIT2: Found source, (well i think I did) I think my little brothers damaged the IDE cord, making the NTLDR is missing message come up. Idk why that didnt happen till now. Geuss I have to buy another DVD drive anyway
If everything was done correctly and you're still getting this error then I'm not really sure what to tell you. Hopefully one of the PC guru's chime in and see if they can set you straight. I'd hate for you to have to buy a new optical drive for your laptop or try to exchange the cables.
I need help with my computer.
For some reason the sound card is acting up I think?
Well when I plug in my head phone and go to volume control, when I switch to a higher/lower setting I can still hear that little "dunk" sound when I change the setting.
But when I got to youtube or my music library it won't produce any sounds. I can't listen to anything. Music, video I can see but not here :/
Anyone konw how to fix this?
