My Pc is about 2 months old. I clocked it to 1.99GHz, it worked fine for a long while, but recently it freezes & I have to reset
But when I reset it wouldn't boot, monitor just keeps blinking, no power light only HDD light lights steady.
I was told to flash the bios.........remove the RAM........boot with CPU alone connected.....
I got it to boot on occasions, but it will freeze within minutes & same procedure again !!!

I got this error:-
"CMOS Checksum error.....Defaults loaded....System reset due to overclock setting.."
I went into the BIOS & set everything to defaults & booted but same problem


Is it my 350W Codegen PSU, MB Battery, RAM, CPU or MB???

I booted without RAM & got beeps but too fast to count

Some Help please !!!! :tazz:

THANKS !!!!!
