I have a Biostar TP45E mobo and a q9400 processor that i overclocked today. It was my first time overclocking and i guess i messed up and now i cant even get to bios. my motherboard has these led lights that say i have a memory error. my computer's fans and lights all turn on but the keyboard mouse and monitor do not. is this a ram problem or did i mess up more than that. i have tried resetting the cmos but still no bios or windows.
yes just because the fan is firing up it could still be messed up
I tested out the ram on another computer and it turned on and everything but it didn't boot correctly it would give an error message and give you options on which ways to boot up. So could this mean it's the ram?
Hold the [Insert] key down while performing a cold (off for 30+ seconds) boot up..
the error message is something on the lines of added hardware has cause the computer to start up improperly. something like that and the only thing i added was the ram so i assume it would be the problem
