Once in a while when I start up it get this message. Overclocking Failed when I never overclocked my computer? Then I am prompt to the Bios to use default settings or continue with the settings I have?

Some motherboards have an auto overclocking feature. MSI i know has one for sure on nf4s you can turn it off in bios comes under dynamic overclocking or something along those lines. That might be the problem.

I have the ASUS P4P800SE Socket 478 mother board. I will check to see if I see what you talking about in the Bios and turn it off.

Thank....

You might want to check your CMOS battery, weird things happen when the voltage gets low.

Well have you set your bios to the default safe settings and not the optimised defaults, and are you using all the newest drivers and have the latest in bios updates.

Well, I did loose the problem. Don't know if this will help all. It all started when - by starting - the system hanged with the check on NVRAM. After that I restarted and received the overclocking message. By dropping all connections I finally found out that this was caused by a USB hub from Sitecom. I deinstalled that one and came in the BIOS again. There I checked all settings - most of it was default - just did minor changes and now I am able to use the system again, without problems (yet). But since I read often that this is a general message this might not help many of you. But you never know.
