Hi,

I have used my computer for the last 10 months no problems, but this morning I turned it on and I get this audio girl like computer voice saying "your CPU failed over clocking" and it doesnít turn on. it did it about 5 times then it worked, but when I logged on the resolution had been changed to minimum (not safe mode) so i changed it back, and yeah Iím just scared to turn it off again, Any suggestions?

Thanks

Well unless the problem is persistent, it does sometimes happen that there is a random set of circumstances and the problem goes away the next time(if you are lucky, but i guess not many people on here are the lucky kind of people). I would say reset the CMOS, if it still happens update your bios if that doesnt work post back with some specs and we will see what we can do from there.

To clear the CMOS, turn off the PC at the power point, then (after earthing yourself) remove the small battery on the motherboard for a couple of minutes. When you put it back in and reboot the machine, the factory defaults will have been restored. We can also tell you where to get the latest BIOS but we'll need your system specs for that.

Note that you may have to make a few changes from the default settings in order to boot successfully. Your last post states that you have 3 HDDs in an array, if this is a RAID array you will definately have to make changes (if you don't know what a RAID array is, you probably don't have one).

If it don't boot, it shouldn't corrupt the hard drives.
