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.

Windows Not Showing & Not Supporting Actual RAM installed.

make sure that you don't need to overclock your setting (in BIOS ) so as to get full ddr3 frequency.That it, you need to overclock your CPU speed and if you want to work at great speed, try you upgrade you processor.
try a core 2 duo or a quad-core and make sure that it matches with your FSB, with maximum L catch ( 12 mb)

You have to go into the BIOS setup
and change the Multiplier and bus speed.
If you do only change one at a time and in small Increments rebooting each time
Does your computer do what you want it to do. If so leave it alone as one bad setting in BIOS can stuff your CPU up

Hi XaaX,

Sorry to hear about your troubles. I have built over 100 machines using ASUS MB's and I've never run into a problem like yours. I'd suggest that you check a couple of things: 1) Make sure that all your BIOS/clock settings are correct, not just the memory frequency. As I'm sure you know, you need to check the CPU settings (voltage and clock speed), FSB settings, memory settings, and voltage settings, as you could be overclocked without knowing it. Also on overclocking it is sometimes a bit of luck of the draw, as some CPU's out of the same batch will overclock 20% or more and some will not overclock at all (if you haven't read about how Intel and AMD decide what speed to market the CPU's at as they come off the line, you should; I think you'd enjoy it!). The second thing I'd do is to get memtest (you can Google where to download). Make sure you get the version that runs at the system level, not the version that runs inside Windows. It is free. If you let it run for a couple of hours, it will tell you EXACTLY what, if anything, is wrong with your memory.

In any case, you should be able to run any ASUS board at 100% of factory specs and never have a HW related crash. If you can document your saga to ASUS, I'm pretty sure that they will MRA the board for you, assuming it's still in warranty.

I hope this is helpful. If you think it appropriate, I'd very much appreciate a Fix Ya rating on this solution. Good luck!

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.
