Overclocked processor non-funtional now

Hey there i have a msi kt4 ultra mainboard, i overclocked my cpu and now my pc does nothing, no loading, no nothing. When i power it on tower powers but black screen. have already tried moving the pin cap to reset the cmos, but nothing, and removed the internal battery, only for about 30 seconds, and it didnt do anything. any suggestions you can get me would be great, i can believe anything got fired from my mods, just need a way to rest set the bios to default. Thank you in advance.

You'll need to remove the battery for longer that 30 seconds. I say this as someone who did exactly what you did, with exactly the same result. I was also pretty sure I hadn't fried the CPU, but was baffled that CMOS reset wasn't working.

Give it an hour or two, or better yet, leave the battery out overnight. Turns out that the newest type ROM chips will hold a charge on their own for quite awhile, almost like capacitors. Let everything discharge, then when you restart, it will be with the factory defaults.

Cheers
Nick

Hello here is the msi homepage:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/G31M3-F--FSB-1600-.html#/?div=BIOS

You have to be sure its the right mainboard.
Flashing the bios with a wrong one will destroy the mainboard.
It does not have to be a bios problem you have.
The problem could be a faulty power supply, or a bad ram module.
Or simply the pc is shutting down, because of overheating/overclocking.
If you get the blue sreen of death, the harddrive could be the fault.
Try also to renew the cooling paste, between the cpu and the cooling element.
Clean also for dust.
It sometime will help to upgrade the bios, when the pc is unstable.
But do fix the power shutdown problem first.
If you upgrade the bios, and the the pc is shutting down while doing this, the mainboard is scrap.

Best of luck

Is it possible to use intel duel core E5400 processor with MSI B75MA-P45 Motherboard? or any other motherboard support DDR3?


Hello here is the cpu list, for the asus board:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboard/P5QLCM/#support_CPU

Here is the msi site:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/B75MA-P45.html#/?div=Basic

Your current cpu will not fit on the msi board, because it is a different socket.

The asus board has socket LGA 775, and the msi board has socket 1155.

You have to buy a new cpu for the msi board, to make it work.

Here is the cpu list:

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/B75MA-P45.html#/?div=CPUSupport

If you want to keep the socket 775, you probably have to find a used mainboard, because this socket type is phased out.

Some online stores still have this mainboard type available, but a new mainboard will have the DDR3 ram socket.

Good luck

I have a MSI KT4 Ultra Motherboard 6590 and after


Hi! It's not uncommon for a new installation of Windows to render a PC mute. It's happened to me on several occassions, but do not dispair.
After one round or two of Windows Updates, your device will be detected as missing its drivers and they will be downloaded and installed for you.
This happens with generic motherboards which use less known built-in devices such as the sound card, the video card, etc. Should your motherboard be an Intel, Asus, or other popular name brand, you run less of a chance to get this problem.
Please run Windows Update a couple of times, or until you're satisfied your machine is up to date.
Good luck!

Motherboard failure


If the system appears to power on, but you do not see anything on the screen, there are several methods to determine the problem at hand.

Make sure the cooling system is fucntional.. a bad CPU fan has been known to make the computer power on, but halt and do nothing to protect the CPU. Some CPU fan's have speed sensors, and other do not, some motherboards require the speed sensor to be functional, or resistance in the line.

Some mainboards will function enough to power the system up, but go no further due to onboad componant failures such as bad / broken SMR, SMC, or capacitor. If you are sure the mainboard works, and the monitor is known to function, proceed with the following troubleshooting tips.

1) Remove everything but the memory, GPU, CPU, and HDD, see if boot is successful, if not Step 2)

2) Replace the Power supply, under powered PSU's can make a system unresponsive / fail to make it to POST, if fails step 3)

3) Replace Memory, if fails, 4)

4) Replace GPU.. if fails, 5)

5) Replace CPU, a non-funtional CPU will alow everything to power up, but will not allow POST in some machines.

6) Replace Motherboard, if fails, start at step 1)

Overclocking Pentium 3 667 MHz on MSI MS-6198 Motherboard


some pentiums are locked at the set speed but there are no jumpers you have to alter the settings are in the bios eg the timing and there may be step ups to increase the processor speed, but remember you get far faster response times by fitting more memory as overclocking can cause overheating and crashes.
