F***ked up my BIOS settings for my RAM settings!! I NEED HELP

So the other day, I did a very foolish thing and tried to overclock my RAM by changing the settings from normal to aggressive. As I saved and exited, my computer would beep THREE times and nothing would load. What should i DO?? and how?

I think you may have burnt out your memory. try different sticks of ram or try the ones you have one at a time to see which one is affected.

    you get beeps the same every time?
    do you have any guaranteed working ram you can try?
    do you have another pc where you can check your ram?
    change your bios settings back before you boot past bios and post otherwise you will fry the new ram too.
    when overclocking ram you need to be very delicate as some can only handle the slightest adjustments before they overheat.
    you would need very stable ram, i use GIEL DRAGON in my system.
    it is very stable and i currently overclock from 800mhz to 1066mhz, i do use a ram cooler though to make sure it stays cool.

Look at your motherboard's manual for clearing the cmos. There may be a jumper you can change to reset the BIOS.

If not, take out the cmos battery and leave it out for several hours...

If your bios ends up resetting, try the RAM again. Could be your RAM is good and your mobo doesn't like the settings.

Hello, I would like to overclock my AMD mt30 CPU 1600Mhz25wattTDP 64clockspeed/power ratio to that of a SempronML37 2000Mhz35WattTDP and 57.1 clock speed/power ratio? Do I just change the voltages in...


Due to the way you stated the above John, you seem like a guy that will understand the following;

Yeah know funny thing about overclocking;

1) You may have a good Processor that came off the assembly line that day, or it may be one that just squeezed past Quality Control. Push it too much, and it will fry. Trying to make it hit 2.0GHz all day long, every day, may just push it over the limit. Sure you may have read about, or even heard of someone who did it. How long? How long did the processor last at this overclocked rate?

2) AMD's run H-O-T. Not a good idea to push a Processor with overclocking (Which makes it run MUCH hotter) in a cramped laptop environment, with a low cooling capacity anyway.

3) Ram Memory typically operates at half of the FSB Frequency Rate ('Speed'), that the Processor does. (Front Side Bus)

To overclock you can;
A) Change the Voltage
B) Change the FSB frequency rate ('speed')
C) Change the Multiplier

If you change the Front Side Bus frequency rate too far, the ram memory will not work anymore.
Won't match.

AMD Turion 64 MT-30,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Turion_microprocessors#.22Lancaster.22_.2890_nm.29

The Sempron you name is a Turion also.
Turion ML-37,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Turion_microprocessors#.22Lancaster.22_.2890_nm.29

4) You have to have a BIOS Setup Utility that will allow you to change CPU parameters.

See this article?

http://www.ehow.com/how_7335931_overclock-turion-64-compaq-nx6125.html

No mention that overclocking a Processor shortens it's 'Life Span'
No mention that if overclocked too far the Ram Memory may not work.

No mention that an AMD processor runs HOT, and if you overclock you'd better have a lot more than the factory cooling. Plus not a good thing for a laptop anyway because of a laptop's poor cooling design. (Cramped small space, small fan, inadequate cooling thermal module)

No mention that the BIOS Setup Utility in your laptop may not have a CPU Soft option, or options inside that allow you to change the Processor's parameters.

No mention that you should go slow. Change parameters in one SMALL increment, wait 24 hours, and check the system. Looks okay? Change parameters another small increment. Check during a 24 hour period. Keep going until the computer starts messing up, then go BACK to the last parameter that checked out okay

Have I dissuaded you yet?
No?
Just don't want to see someone fry their Processor, or computer.

Okay.

The Turion MT-30 has a clock multiplier of 8 times. (8x)
The Turion ML-37 has a clock multiplier of 10x.

The Turion MT-30 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)
The Turion ML-37 uses 1.35 Volts (DC)

The Turion MT-30's Front Side Bus frequency rate is 800MegaHertz
The Turion ML-37's FSB 'speed' is 800MHz.

What options in your BIOS Setup do you have for changing CPU (Processor) parameters?
State back in a Comment. (Believe top right of your page)

No options?
Then try CrystalCPUID, or ClockGen,

How to overclock my motherboard ?


there are 2 ways, overclocking using the bios to over clock the memory ( ram ) and also the processor ie changing the multipliers and other tweaks ( which should be in your motherboards manual ) that or using jumpers which are physically on the motherboard but later motherboards use the bios to tweak / over clock your computer.

Overclocking failed


Hi, If you have overclocked: 1. CPU or motherboard not up to it - run at default speed; or 2. Memory - try using other memory; or 3. Video Card - see if you can run the Video card at default speed and not with overclock speed; or 4. You may need to up the CPU B+ a bit. If not overclocked: a. Set BIOS/CMOS to default settings; or b. Disable any overclocking feature (even if not used); or c. Lower you CAS latency. Hope this be of some help/idea. ood luck and kind regards.
