Sorry

Hi Rich, the oc'd indeed meant overclocked, but it was my graphics card that was overclocked, not my cpu. The HD 7870 is a radeon graphics card by amd. My cpu is an intel 5, and it cannot be overclocked with my current motherboard. My apologies if I seemed rude as well.

It was indeed an overclock, but it was on my graphics card, not my cpu. It is not possible to overclock my cpu with my current motherboard.
Also, I didn't go anywhere

It could well be that your graphics card is overclocked too much, and is halting the boot process somewhere along the line. To eliminate this possibility, remove the card and connect to your motherboard's on-board graphics temporarily. Reboot, and let us know if that makes any difference.

I can't imagine my grahpics card overclock having anything at all to do with the computer booting properly. More like something with the motherboard or other simple settings. My graphics card was giving me blue screens because of a too heavy overclock some time ago, but I've reduced it and its running just fine now.

Still worth a try to see if you can progress further.

Matlet, listen to Dwarf, he knows a bit about this sort of thing.

I'll try it the next time the issue appears.

Overclocking any component can cause this issue, so I would put everything back to "default" value in BIOS and simplify the troubleshooting...
