Windows 7: Help me please.

Help me please.

So I overclocked my Intel E5700 up to 4GHz on the Del Command.
I first tried it on 3.5 GHz
and it worked.
But when I tried it up to 4GHz
the monitor wouldn't show anything
it's just black, though the PC is on.

What to do?
Help me please, My dad will kill me if this is new pc busted.

Ok, take the side off the pc case , on the motherboard have a look round and you will see a small round shaped battery.

Carefully take this out, leave it out for around 5 mins and put it back in and then reboot the pc.

This will re set the bios to factory settings and it "should" work again.


Edit.. Obviously switch the pc off 1st.


Cheers

Paul.

Hopefully not, usually they cut off before that point.

Like I say, by removing the battery it will clear the bios of the bad overclock and it will fire up as normal.

M8, do you know much about OC? If so, make sure you know some of the flaws like your current issue. If the PC is your fathers, i suggest you leave trying to tweak it in anyway.

Just take the slack for it, or what not. Learn from your mistakes.

Ok listen , the battery should be kept in , it remembers all the settings in the bios including time etc.

Now time for the lesson, which sadly you are learning the hard way.

If you have no knowledge of overclocking (and it sounds like you don't) then you need to read, read and read up on it. Google is a great friend on this!

Every system and CPU is different, you also need software on windows for monitoring overclocks such as coretemp, cpuz and you need to test stability using programs such as prime95.

Really if I was you I would class this as a lucky escape and thank god you didn't wreck your new system.

Like I say do some research on it and lots of it before you even consider overclocking again.

Goodluck with your dad

Paul.
