Bootup failure


Recommended Posts

Help Please!

This is the first time that I assemble a PC for OC purpose with:

P5K Premium

Q6600

Kingstone 4G DDR2 1066 (KHX8500D2K2/2GN) as specified in the Asus Guide Book

ATI Sapphire HD 2600xt

Corsair 520W PS

 

With the BIOS in default mode, every time the PC starts up and immediately comes this message: Overclocking faild, Press 1 for BIOS Setup, press 2 to set up default.

The other problem is that when rebooting (either in Windows or Reset) the PC will not reboot unless I switch off the PS and back on.

I have exchanged the MB twice, tried another PS, no success.

 

Asus tech support says it is the Memory. I have tested each memory module by itself, i different slots, no success. Although Asus specifies this particular memory in their Guide Book, Asus said that they DO NOT test if the memory actually works...

 

I am not familiar in setting the BIOS ADVANCED values for OC.

I have spend days.... please help!

Seems that you already know that the memory is bad or that there is a mem setting off.....

Thanks for replying!

Now, what mem test are you talking about?

and

if a mem setting is off, shouldn't the "auto" setting take care of being set "right"?

Besides the voltage and the 5-5-5-15 setting specified by Kingston, (and I have tried setting these values manually without success) what other setting should/could I try to adjust. I coul use some education....

Thank you!

Tomas

go to the forums link on this site and go to overclocking, and a bunch of threads should pull up there is one that says overclocking essential hardware and you'll find the link for memtest on that page.
