Try to OC Cpu and get error in post screen.

I try to OC my CPU thru either uGuru or in the BIOS and i get an error in post screen saying "Warning! System is now in safe mode." It tells me to reset the setting in the BIOS. It happens even if i move the clock speed up 1 Mhz. I have reinstalled XP Pro and even got SLI certified Memory and have two vid cards. I dont know how to get rid of this error. I would liek to OC my system just a little but for some reason i cant get it to happen with this board. If anyone knows how to OC this board without getting this error please let me know or if you know how to get rid of this error please help me out.

Re: Try to OC Cpu and get error in post screen.

djnick989 - what the hell are you talking about "not made for it" ???? The IN9 32max is specifically made for overclocking!!!!!!!!! An dyou obviously have never even been near this board or you would know that it has NOTHING like auto boost

CPU overvoltage error"


Did n't you just post in hardware about flashing the BIOS?
Did you enter the BIOS & check the cpu voltage setting to make sure it's correct?
Actually, after the flash you probably should have used the ClearCMOS jumper to reset the BIOS,
then ran thru ALL the settings & manually adjust them for best performance.

Same problem

You need to flash the bios to a newer version for this cpu to be supported by your motherboard. Your descriprtion says asus so go to; click on the support link; lookup your specific board model #; select the operating system you are running. Download the latest bios file and follow the directions on the download site for proper flashing. Once you have flashed the bios everything should identify properly and allow you to continue setup. Hope this helps.

Asus bios problem

Unless there is a compelling reason to update the bios it should be left alone. Apparently this is one reason for that sage advice.

Go back to asus, download an older version of the bios and install it. Fortunately you didn't end up unable to boot or you would be buying a new board.

CMOS Checksum error - Defaults loaded

When the CPU speed stored in BIOS and the actuall speed of CPU differs then this error comes.

To fix this you have to select the actuall speed of your attached CPU to the board. Just set the actuall speed and save the changes. It will fix your problem.

Asus m2n-e sli Cpu changed settings on boots up

I could not find BIOS ver. 1302 for the M2N-E Mb. What I do know: Your dual core 4200 showing up as "unknown". Asus says:
This is because the BIOS does not have the relative CPU uCode to support this processor. Please simply update your BIOS to version 0902 or later to resolve this problem.
BIOS 0902 can be downloaded from the link below:

Once you cpu shows up correctly, chances are that your over clocking will work and the bios will stop sending you back to change your settings.

Post code 9.0.

9.0 Complete uGuru initial process AWARD BIOS take over booting job.
9.9 Complete power off sequence.
Did some reading & it's not good. Some say it's the memory most point to the board being bad. According to the posts resetting the bios jumpers will not let you enter the bios either.
You can test you memory in another machine but again most posts say their memory was just fine. No one said it was the CPU. If you want to download your manual click the link below.
