Question about ASUS A8V Deluxe Motherboard

1 Answer

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.

    I did'nt,But I always checked the temperature in the bios and everything was running cool inside.The machine was designed to be overclocked with plenty of fans.I was thinking could it be I need a new bios chip.I'm tempted to get a new motherboard which are cheap,but I'd love to keep my graphics card an agp X1950 PRO 512mb which I got about 4 months ago.Thanks for responding.

    I did but I always got the bad cmos message after doing that.But its the failed bios flash that seems to be stopping me from seeing anything on the screen now.So I made a bad problem worse it seems.

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

drbrightirem.jpgOverclocking a processor means enabling it to operate above the manufacturer's specified frequency. Many internet sites provide instructions for overclocking. Processor manufacturers and many computer experts believe the slight gain in performance (only perceivable on CPU-intensive software) isn't worth the expense or considerable risk.

  • Get whatever tools you need: screwdriver, needle-nose pliers, motherboard manual, cooling hardware, etc.
  • 2 Find out whether your motherboard can be adjusted in the BIOS setup, with jumpers or not at all.
  • 3 Find out clock-speed limitations of the motherboard.
  • 4 Run all Windows and any third-party diagnostic applications you have. Fix all system problems.
  • 5 Make a complete backup of your system, documents and applications you don't have on CD-ROM. Do not overwrite these copies.
  • 6 If you have a BIOS-adjustable motherboard, make changes according to your motherboard manual, and skip to Step 15.
  • 7 Shut down computer.
  • 8 Leave computer plugged in to surge suppressor.
  • 9 Disconnect all peripherals from computer.
  • 10 Remove cover of chassis.
  • 11 Ground yourself to computer with any professional grounding equipment you have. Otherwise, ground yourself by touching a metal part of the chassis.
  • 12 If your motherboard has adjustable jumpers, locate the jumpers that control the CPU speed.
  • 13 Use needle-nose pliers to change jumper settings. Move jumpers to positions indicated in your motherboard manual for the clock speed you want. Check the internet for recommendations.
  • 14 Install a CPU heat sink, heat-sink compound, and a specialty cooling fan, if appropriate and possible.
  • 15 Put system back together, and reboot.
  • 16 If computer does not boot, and CPU still works, try lowering the clock speed. If that doesn't work, restore the original configuration.
  • 17 Check all functions, and run a CPU-intensive program.

    • CPUs have rated and maximum speeds. Exceeding the maximum speed is far more likely to cause problems than more conservative adjustments.

    • Overclocking an Intel processor explicitly voids its warranty. Other manufacturers have similar exclusions. Intel prevents overclocking of some CPUs by disabling higher multiplier settings.

    • Expect a shorter life for an overclocked processor, including the possibility of its immediate failure.

    • Prepare to deal with seemingly unrelated problems that can be caused by overclocking: destruction of other internal components, lost data, system and application crashes, and an inability to boot the system. Such problems can occur randomly or materialize well after you have altered your motherboard

    Installed Windows 7 - got an "overclocking error"

    please clear the cmos by moving jumper pin next to the battery area on the motherboard, make power pulg is off before moving jumper to clear bios memory to default

    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.

    OverClocking Problem when startup my system

    Most motherboards have settings that allow the board to try and overclock itself upon bootup. Take a look in your manual and it should lead you to the correct setting in the bios that will allow you to have the computer boot up in normal mode. Failing that, you may have to force the motherboard back to the default setup. There is a jumper you would have to move, then you would remove the battery from the motherboard. Check your manual for how to clear the CMOS settings if you need to do that step.

    Problem in overclocking my Processor.

    1: You problem is your power supply, PSU. When you try to give more power to your CPU by overclocking it, it doesn't have enough wattage, or power, to get the CD drive, or your sound card to work. This is why the CD drive works again when the CPU isn't overclocked. So, in this case, to overclock your CPU, you would have to get more power to your system by getting a more powerful PSU, or one with more wattage. How much you can overclock your processor depends on a variety of different things. Your RAM, PSU, HDD, CD drive, etc. I would not go past about 3.4ghz with your processor, however, a "max overclock" is hard to determine.

    2: The maximum temp for your processor is 70C, 158F. I would try to keep your temperatures under 60C to ensure your processor doesn't "die early" on you. The multiplier cannot be changed, only the FSB can be changed. You should be able to create a "profile" in bios and set it to your default so that it loads up automatically when you boot up. Make sure you find a stable configuration before you make a default profile.

    URGENT HELP... i have broken my computer by OVERCLOCKING it...please help

    First of all, it seems unlikely that you have actually broken anything.

    Please look carefully at the options in the main setup menu (BIOS) after you press the DEL key... There sshould be an option to "loade defalut settings" or "load optimised settings"

    If so select this option and F10 to save/exit and allow it to boot

    First off... be warned overclocking is not for the faint of heart... now let us begin...


    I can't stress this out enough if you plan on overcloking it's worth spending some money on some fan's specifically a CPU fan to make sure it stays cool. A side effect of overclocking is increased heat.

    Restart the computer and go into your BIOS. Look for the setting to change the bus speed. Depending on your specific CPU it should be 200 MHz (if it's not don't worry, most computers now are 200 MHz). There should also be an option called the multiplier. This one is usually unavailable. If it is available you have a high-end CPU model that is "unlocked".


    The system bus is multiplied by the multiplier and gives you the resulting speed.

    200 x 16 = 3200 => 3.2 GHz

    IF your multiplier is unlocked you can increase it... it's not then we have to use the system bus.

    When you change the system bus it increases the speed of everything in your system... that is the link in between  individual components. But it's a double edge sword... it will cause you system to become unstable more quickly and reduce the maximum overclocking potential.


    Increase the bus speed 3~5 MHz at a time. Restart the computer boot into the Operating System and run applications you normally would. If nothing crashes, hangs, freezes, locks up... you can reboot the computer and increase the bus speed again. Repeat theses steps until:

    a) reach a point where the system becomes unstable
    b) you feel like pushing your system more is getting to risky

    This is a very basic answer on how to overclock. For more information, guides and other goodies is a good website for more information and guides.

    WARNING: If you push the system to far to fast without doing it gradually you can surpass the computer components limits and cause damage to the computer parts. I am not responsible for any damage that occurs. This is just a guide.

    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.
