  1. If the system boots with a default BIOS (no core unlocking), I guess you do have a problem with one of your locked cores.
  2. XP boots with no problem as is out of the box. all four unlock in BIOS and show unlocked on all four but the comp will not boot. So I have gone back to default settings. Later I am going to unlock one at a time and see if XP will boot. Also have Ubuntu 10.4 on second drive and neither will boot with unlocked as quad.

    Thanks

  3. You could try upping the voltage but if its not booting at all its unlikely to help. So like you say try one at a time.

    I cannot see this working if the unlock is causing it on 2 OSs then its just not stable
  6. does it try to boot?
    Where is it failing?
