First off, CoreCell is more of a backup BIOS than an overclocking tool, but that's not a big deal.
You basically need to be kind of careful when overclocking by just bumping up the FSB speed, but you've already found out why.
There's two ways you can fix this, which amount to the same thing. First, check the manual for your motherboard, and see if it has a CMOS reset jumper. If it does, use that to reset your BIOS to defaults. Otherwise, pop out what looks like a large watch battery. Give it a couple of minutes to be sure, then put it back in and reboot the system. You'll have to redo some of the CMOS settings over again, and this time you might want to be a little more careful with your overclocking. You want to start small, like a 5MHz increase, and then see if that's stable for a few days... Then bump it another 5MHz, lather, rinse, repeat until Windows starts crashing or freezing, then slowly back it off until it's running stable again.
Hi, I am currently running an
AMD Athlon XP 2100+
MSI KT440 MOBO
GeForce 4 MX 440 64mb video card
300 watt psu
dvd-rw and dvd-r
80 gb hard drive
The motherboard has this thing called a core cell chip which is supposed to help over clock so i decided to try it out. I went into bios and changed the cpu frequency from 133 Mhz to 230 Mhz. I think i might have really over done it but I thought it was ok because the bios message said between 100 and 280 Mhz. Anyway, I saved and exited and now when it restarted, the 'busy' led on the case stays on and my monitor says no signal. So nothing is coming through to my monitor and the computer stays busy. I want to go into bios and put back to 133 Mhz but the screen won't show and its not even shuttin off the 'busy' led. Please help, greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
