Hit A Snag...

28 May 2005 - 04:45 PM

So i guess i cant o/c any further than this:

(stock 200MHz) ... 218MHz w/ 11x multiplier... Vcore @ 1.525V ..untouched

...this puts me at around 2398MHz ... not very impressive.. a 2.2GHz 3400+ only clockable to 2.4GHz??? <_<

I have a ThermalTake fan that spins a maximum of 5500RPM, so cooling is not an issue... especially at this speed...

POST completes, but i get a blue screen with alot of 'DOS-like' text referencing errors on the disk and whatnot... Windows will not boot up...

...suggestions please... :huh:

Crt Turns Off And On With Reboot...

24 May 2005 - 04:23 PM

..not sure why its doing this.. when i restart the computer, the monitor just turns off for like a second and a half then turns back on again, like its resetting itself.. this cant be good for the mechanics.. its a huge 21" so to see the sucker turn off then on again so fast CANT be good... it never does this, just today it started doing it...

My card is an ATI X800 Pro.... Catalyst 5.5.

any suggestions?

24 May 2005 - 02:41 PM

alright... stock is 2210MHz... right now, im at 2277.0MHz with a 11x multiplier and FSB at 207MHz HTT. I can overclock anywhere between 200 and 300MHz. VCore is currently increased to 1.575.

Ive searched google for info on this, and havent much light shed on the situation... anyone here want enlighten me?

How far until 'something bad' happens? :huh:

Procedure For Flashing Bios

23 May 2005 - 06:58 PM

Ive never flashed the BIOS before, and after searching the forums that relate to this topic, I didnt find much direction... Can someone explain to me, in general, HOW you update the BIOS once youve downloaded the file.... i dont want to screw it up...

BTW..the size of the file was 512k ... I assume that I would save this file to a floppy and then reboot off the floppy ? ... I understand that youre NEVER supposed to update the BIOS in Windows after reading these forums....
