It is not a good idea to flash the BIOS on an OC'd machine without doing that step. As mentioned take note of all your OC settings then return it to defaults then flash. That's the proper sequence. m 0 l thuglife67889 January 10, 2010 1:22:39 AM thanks im kinda new in all of this OC stuff i had a friend do it for me .i was scared of frying my PC. so im still learning m 0 l jsc a c 172 à CPUs a c 197 K Overclocking January 10, 2010 2:15:27 PM Follow directions exactly. You're much better off trying to flash from a bootable floppy or USB drive than from inside Windows. Because I do not have a UPS, I flash late at night (Hey! That wasn't a pun). I think the power grid is a little more stable then. m 0 l thuglife67889 January 10, 2010 8:42:57 PM i dont have a floppy drive m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
