i just tried to change my fsb from 333 to 500 and set my ram from 800 to 1000 via that utility ASUS AI Suite....
my bios is 0203
now my monitor wont show anything anymore..... and the bios doesnt beep during boot up.. i dont even know if it actually boot up anymore
everything seems to be still working (fans, psu, etc)
i tried to clear RTC RAM by following the procedures on page 2-22 but it didnt work.. (i couldnt continue at step6 which is to setup the bios date back since my monitor still dont work..
the monitor still works
i tried pressing delete or F1 during boot to see if something was happening and nothing seems to happen (altho i cant see anything)
Overclocking that much within the AI Suite was a silly thing to do.
You should always overclock from BIOS with manual frequency and voltage control. You tried a 50% overclock in one step.
Knowing how AI Suite works it could have fried the motherboard / CPU / RAM.
Unplug it from the wall and remove the battery and Clear RTC again. Leave it unplugged for an hour or so. Reinstall the battery and reconnect the power cord. Put the motherboard driver disk into the your optical drive and see if it will POST. If not you can likely start RMAing things.
wut do u mean by RMAing?...
when i pressed APPLY in AI Suite, the comp froze, i waited a few minutes before resetting it, and then it never booted up again
i have artic freezer 7pro heatsink and 2 additional fan (i think my case has a good air ventilation) do u think it could still have fried my mobo/cpu/ram??
tx for ur help
Locate your CMOS battery. You know, the only spot on the motherboard with a button cell. Near it, there should be two metal prongs sticking out. Get something that's electrically conductive, normally a screwdriver. Then touch both the prongs with the screwdriver for about 5secs to discharge any electrical charge.
i took off my CMOS battery and usedthe "clear RTC ram" switch for 1hour on my mobo, ---> that s the same as your telling me right?
i am indeed a noob at ocing and had NO IDEA that this wasnt the way to do it....... i sadly think that i blew up my mobo.... maybe other ****
my cpu is E8400, hence why i tried 500mhz which is avg OC for those, I BELEIVE.... :X
if i cant hear the bios beep anymore, that kindo means my mobo is dead right?? my monitor keeps sayin "no signal" would that mean my gpu blew up too?
