Question about ASUS A8V Deluxe Motherboard

Please god help me.

Recently while trying to overclock my system I overclocked it too far.When I restarted it I could'nt boot into windows,I got a windows/system 32 corruption error.I tried to repair it with my windows xp disc but it said it could'nt detect the harddrive.I checked all the connections and they were fine.I also got cmos bad sometimes when I booted the machine.I took out the battery and moved the jumpers numerous times but still could'nt boot into windows.Then I thought to use the asus disc to reinstall the bios,it said it installed it but instead of rebooting it just hung there for ages,to I decided to reboot but now the screens just blank.Please help.

Re: Please god help me.

Did you upgrade your heatsink and fan when you overclocked? If not, your cpu probably got too hot and burned up.

SOURCE: Cmos Cheksum bad - Overclocking

you can remove the cmos for about 2 mins and put it again if this doesn't work then have a new one.

GA-M61SME-S2L motherboard?


It's CPU-Z from, but made especially for Gigabyte motherboards.

This way when you change a parameter in Voltages, or system bus clock, (FSB), you can see the changes in real time.

2) EasyTune 5 from Gigabyte,

That is just the features, and G.U.I. shown. (Graphics User Interface) The actual download website is below at the bottom link I listed,

The above is the actual download page.
Where it states 7-Zip info, go to the right, and click on the blue - External Mirror 1 - (Has a green Down Arrow to the right of it.

After you click a small window will come up on the right -
Opening motherboard_utility_gbttools_gbt_et5pro.exe

Click on Save File. Observe the top of the small window that comes up on the left. In the wording at the top of the window tells you where the file will download to.

Go to where it states, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name,
(motherboard_utility_gbttools_gbt_et5pro.exe )

Now follow the directions, and install EasyTune 5.

This is Gigabyte Support, and the download page for the motherboard manual,

1) Take -> BABY steps. Change a parameter in small increments.

Change the parameter in one small increment, then let the system (Computer) run for 24 hours. This is a 24 hour burn in test. Pretty accurate, but do not 'stamp it in stone'.

2) You can only overclock so far. Overclocking creates heat. After some time the air cooling you are using, is not going to be adequate.

3) You can only overclock so far because you will be changing the FSB for the Processor. This also changes it for the Ram Memory, and expansion slots.

Ram Memory typically operates at half of the Processor's FSB.
Change the Processor FSB too much, and ram memory will not work.
Neither will the expansion slots. Their frequency rate is determined off of the Processor FSB also.

4) Overclock too much at first, and you risk burning up the motherboard chipset, and Processor, and Ram Memory.

Try to put operating system in computer comes up with overclocking failed error how do i reset or fix overclocking problem

hit F1 or DEL right at boot repeatedly until it enters bios. look for cpu/frequency, perhaps underneath "chipset" or "advanced" settings. lower the cpu/frequency a little, until it boots, or look for "auto" settings for the cpu/frequency and ram speeds.

Im trying to decide what video card to get with this mother im a huge gamer and i play all games from CoD4 to wow. also does this board already come factory overclocked? how do i configure overclocking ?

motherboards do not come overclocked, unless you bought it from a person that has already done that. For overclocking, you go into the BIOS but make sure you have adequate cooling in your machine. When you overclock you want the CPU cooler fan to blow away from the CPU instead of onto it. Also you want more fans blowing out the rear of the case if you have one intake fan in the front, two in the rear/side panel. Overclocking causes more heat, and shortens CPU lifetime. I believe you press F2 at boot to get into BIOS on your motherboard. in the BIOS settings you can change the multiplier, but if it doesn't add up correctly, your computer will just hang instead of boot and try a different setting. Although this mobo supports Hyper-Threading and supports Untied Overclocking Technology, so it should be simpler to overclock rather than some mobos are tricky to get it going right.

As for the graphics card with this board: it's an Intel processor so you need a graphics card made by ATI. I would recommend a Radeon graphics card with this motherboard. The motherboard is compatible with Front Side Bus 1600/1333MHz CPUs, so make sure your Graphics card you select doesn't have a FSB faster than that, otherwise you will be wasting money.

I have a intel dg31pr motherboard with e7200 processor.i want to overclock it.plz help me............

Overclocking is something you should only do if you are fairly experienced with computers. Most motherboards that overclock are made for overclocking as are the processors used. Good overclocking requires a balance of increased FSB, multiplier, increased voltage to the ram and sometimes the processor as well, and excellent cooling. It is easy to burn out your system by overclocking. There are many things you should know first. For that reasion alone it is impossible for me to tell you how to overclock it.

But, go to This is a site made for people who want to overclock. Read and browse through the forums. You will also find some excellent by the numbers guides there. Sigh up and jump in. When you perform your first overclock, come back and tell me. I've been overclocking since 2002.

Warning on post screen during boot up and ocassional blue screen

Sounds like the CPU is overclocked in your system. I would clear CMOS the try it again. The CPU is probably overclocked to far causing it to become unstable.

Overclocking past 2.7GHz with Q6600 GO step

Please check BIOS update from mainboard manufacturer website it there has a solution for overclocking and others. Else don't push your motherboard so hard, you might get extraneous problem.

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.
