I stupidly thought i'd have a go at overclocking my AMD 64 3000 it was running at 200 and said the max i could put it up to was 232, so i did.
now my pc starts up but gets stuck almost instantly after checking RAM (I hear the floppy drive talking but nothing else happens)
PLEASE HELP IN ANYWAY :tazz: ;) ;)

seems I read this is a newly built machine?

two ways to go about it....either read the motherboard manual and see if there is a jumper you can connect to reset the cmos settings to default or pull the cmos battery (looks like a watch battery)

As always, ground yourself before messing with a PCs innards
