I tried to overclock with bad results.

For starters I really should have been doing this b/c I don't know what I'm doing but you have to learn somehow.

Here is what I know,

I was playing with the CIA 2 and had it on Sport with no problems. It was showing about 3.6GHz and stable with Prime95 for a few hours so...

I tried Full Thrust and it would not boot. This is where I think I messed up.

I changed the CPU Voltage control to 1.35v and left everything else the same and tried Racing. It booted for about a minute then blue screened and I shut down. Now it won't even boot long enough to let me bring up the bios. It starts then shuts down after about 2 seconds.

I think everything in my bios is set up standard.

I know this is vague but its all i got :( 

If I could just get back into the bioS I could change it. Unless something terminal is going on.

Thanks for you help if you can

Don

Reset cmos. That will set your motherboard settings back to stock and your system should boot. If you don't know how check your motherboard owners manual. (And just a note for other new overclockers learn how to reset your cmos before trying to overclock because you will do it a lot in a effort to get a stable overclock.)

Keep switching it on/off...usually a BIOS would have a backup that resets everything to default if you can't start up. (my DX58SO takes about 5 resets, while my Biostar P43 takes about 6-7 resets)

If that doesn't work (if your BIOS doesn't have that), then easymoney9 is correct, reset your cmos
