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.

Hi there,

When starting your PC, the following error message is displayed:

CMOS wrong
CMOS Checksum Bad
CMOS checksum error defaults loaded
Warning! CPU has been changed please re-enter cpu settings in the cmos setup and remember to save before quit!
You are prompted to:

Press F1 to resume
Press F2 to load default values and continue

This is due to the fact that the CMOS, which contain data related to the BIOS, has been reinitialized and that your PC has been reset to factory settings.


Reinitializing the BIOS
  • Change BIOS battery
    • If the problem persist this may be due to the fact that the battery powering the CMOS (when the computer is shut down allows the CMOS to store information), is depleted.
    • The CMOS battery is a small pin found on the mother board, you can refer to the manual provided with your motherboard to change it or have the nearby computer technician change it for you if you don't want to risk any damage.
    • More information with: Replacing the battery of your motherboard (CMOS battery)
Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.

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.

Has power, but will not post up or go thru boot

Hello my friend,if you sure that is having power and is not motherboard or CPU error then you should try resetting your bios settings or check if the bios battery is dead.You should take it to a repair shop to take a look or tell me if you want to try to change the cmos battery but remember that the warranty will be void and you may harm your computer.

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 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.

Asus P3V4X/S370-133/Tualatin 1.2Ghz

It turns out that while the BIOS will not appear to recognize the Pentium 3 1.4GHz Tualatin CPU (SL6BY) in my Asus P3V4X motherboard, Windows XP does! I apologize for my delay in posting this.

I have five extra SL6BY processors that I'd like to sell if anyone is interested. I need to make some money to upgrade the memory in this antique to 2GB (turns out that low density 512MB RAM does work in the P3V4X, by the way).
