I have some problem on my PC which is running window XP pro. When I switch on my pc. It will prompt me the message below: ''Overclocking failed. Please enter setup to re-configure your system. Press F1...


The BIOS settings are wrong. Press F1 when the pc starts to enter in the BIOS then on there you will see the Load default settings option: select it, Save and Exit. If the problem isn't fixed then you have some jumpers on the motherboard that are switched wrongly - take them all out and try again.
