Windows 7: Adjusting oc/ov settings ?

Adjusting oc/ov settings ?

Looks like I'm back again. This time I'm getting this error message:

"Settings have failed to post. system is using defaut settings for this post attempt. press f1 to continue, f2 to enter setup to adjust oc/ov settings."

Not sure how this happened but I do see the reset settings coming up in my start menu again. This started to happen with my last driver issue, Dell replaced the video cards after doing certain tests, everything seems to work fine now but this bios message has started to appear.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could be an unstable overclock, you should try restoring the BIOS to the defaults and check to see if the message shows up again.

I went ahead and reset the bios settings, it seems to have fixed the error message but now I'm getting an older bios problem I was having a few weeks back:

floppy disk failed 40
and some hdmi auto cable error

I've disabled them like before but for whatever reason the floppy disk error message keeps re-appearing unlike before. What could be causing this?

and thanks for the responses.

If you don't have a floppy disk drive, try disabling it from the boot menu in the bios.

Hey thanks for the response,

I did disable from the bios as well as the hdmi audio cable but for whatever reason the floppy error message still shows up. It worked the last time I had this problem, which was before the ov/oc setting problem. Resetting the bios default settings fixed the ov/oc problem but brought back the floppy and audio hdmi cable setting, which I then disabled like before, only this time the floppy error won't go away but still shows as disabled in the bios.
