are you trying to use the auto-overclock function?

and what settings have you tried.

Id suggest starting small, 4.0 ghz (20x multi). only problem I see is the power supply is a bit small and the motherboard is a 95W, but those have been able to push the 4100 to 4.4ghz anyway with it and even so it should still be able to load into the bios since the video card won't be pulling power.

Make sure the bios is updated.

No I am not using auto overclock
I just put the multiplier to the first x
And also the voltage

My bios is 0801

run some stress tests, usually prime 95. If it comes up with errors, you need to up the voltages slightly. If it all works, then you can try bumping the mutli some more and repeat.
