Computer dead?

I followed an OC guide and the pc won't start.

Intel i5 2500k
asrock extreme 3 gen 3
16gb g skill ram

It was set to 4500mhz with 1.3v (it was running fine at 4000mhz with auto voltage)

Since I made them 2 changes as the guide suggested my pc won't boot. it goes to motherboard screen (where you get the option to go into the bios) but once it gets past this screen flickers blue real fast and then restarts. I've put everything back to standard (I saved the standard settings as a profile in my bios) but it still won't boot.

Am i fried or is it savable?

If you switched everything back, I am guessing you can look around in the BIOS.

I'm curious what readings you are getting in "PC health" or whatever ASRock calls it.

What temps show up in the BIOS?

Surely your board must feature a cmos/bios reset button.
Yeah it does i just looked.

Yeah, pressed it and it reset my Bios to standard. still won't boot.

For the other question everything looks normal in bios it sees my bios. cup and ram and cpu temp is 34

If I test another cpu on my motherboard but it turns out my motherboard is faulty, can this damage the cpu?

I want to find out which part may be damaged but don't want to damage any other parts

Go to BIOS and look for "Load Optimized Defaults" save and exit.

You have to clear the CMOS inside in the MB some MB have jumpers to do it, look it up in the manual that came with your MB.

There's a reset cmos button on the back of the motherboard. I pressed it and it reset the bios and restarted the machine. doesn't help though

Can you get any info from the brief blue screen you get just before it restarts?

Have you tried safe mode?

How do you get into safe mode? The option normally comes up after where bsod occurs. I recorded the bsod and paused on the blue screen buy its not readable

What are the two options on the black screen at 1:29 in your video? I assumed one was safe mode and the other was "start windows normally".

It looks like you are selecting "start windows normally" and then windows fails to load.

Windows repair which doesn't fix or start windows normally


I've slowed down a video and managed to pause on the blue screen.

It says to check for viruses and remove any new harddrives (im certain non of them are the issue) and underneath there is some technical info. kinda hard to make it out but this is how I read it

***STOP: 0X0000007s (0xFFFFF880009A98E8, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0X00000000000000000000)

It might actually be a B not and S

***STOP: 0X0000007B (0xFFFFF880009A98E8, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0X00000000000000000000

I've put in my windows disk and booted from that. its currently installing another copy of windows to my second drive. would the computer do this if the cpu or mobo was fried? I have a feeling my new ssd has gone
February 25, 2012 4:52:11 PM

Im fully boots from my mechanical hard after doing a an install of windows on it. im currently formatting my ssd (hope its not broken) but things seem brighter now! Mobo and cpu seem to be working!

Glad you could use the BSOD info.

What a nightmare it was to get though! The bsod was only on for about 9/10 of a second!!

I installed to.my second hdd. formatted my ssd and now I've just done a fresh install on the ssd and will wipe the second drive. All good so far! So relieved!!

With your OC attempt - it was not stable and corrupted you win7. No big deal - try smaller steps next time.

you're fine, the reason it wont boot is that the motherboard reset from AHCI to IDE when your overclock failed and the bios reset automatically. If you set it to AHCi it will boot from the ssd without the blue screen.
