    Computer won't boot until minutes after, then give a "overclocking failed" message. Tested memory to be fine, all bios settings are at default, and ran with the bare minimum hardware (hdd, 1gb ram, cpu, etc.)

Lower you CPU clock rate to normal.

Oerclocking can cause internal components to overheat and fail.

Just hope nothing is permanently damaged...

Note; Ensure you system is VERY clean as this will aid to disapate any heat generated by overclocking.

Hi James,
Considering its under warranty, there's not much point in trying to repair or adjust the card settings to get it to work properly. This would certainly void any warranty it may have which means you would have to buy a new one anyway. Best would be to take it back & get a replacement.
Best wishes,

My raid keeps failing and I've had both hard drives thoroughly tested by a reoutable pc repair (overclocker uk) and they say the drives are fine. When I start the pc one moment its ok then next thing it...


My guess is that the RAID adapter (either a separate add-in PCI card, or integrated into the motherboard) is intermittently failing.

Either replace that add-in card, or replace (under warranty???) the motherboard.

Overclocking failure!!!


Pull your cooler off the processor and clean off the thermal paste and reapply. Seriously think about putting some bucks into a better way of cooling that monster if you are going to be overclocking. 185 degrees is pretty warm, you probably just baked the thermal paste, replacing it will get the cooling effects back in place.

Computer crashes with my RAM sticks both in


First thing i would suspect is a bad ram stick. Here is a link to a free tool you can use to test the ram if you dont have an application for that:

http://ubcdfull.sourceforge.net/

use the "memtest" programs on there.

I know, it works fine with 1 stick, but its a dual channel board so the ram may only fail on 2 sticks, so check it out.

If RAM tests fine, then go for a BIOS update. I have run into some weird things with that chipset in ragards to raid vs mem. Using RAID on that system?

Is your system overclocked? try running it at standard speed. If that fixes it then run at a lower overclock or get better cooling.

If it still doesnt work after all that, see if you cant borrow another processor from someone and try running it with a different processor.

If that is not the problem, try running a fresh load of windows for a couple of days, with nothing but windows loaded. If that fixes it then your problem is software, and will go away with the reload.

If you are STILL having trouble after all that, then its time to try swapping out the motherboard. Hopefully yours is still under warranty. If not, I like Asus boards - as they have a 3 year warranty and are just good boards.

Overclocking


Overclocking is set from the BIOS configuration. Not all BIOS allows overclocking, it may need a BIOS upgrade.
Check the ASUS WEB site for your model motherboard.
Overclocking the CPU (ie running at a higher clock speed) and increasing Frontside bus speed will give better performance BUT there is a downside too, if you overclock too high you could overheat the CPU and it could fail.

Can't start bios


Hi dariel6167, Asus does cover their boards for three years. Your board came out in 2006. The error message you received (Over clocking Failed) is a normal error message when there is an issue with the bios. You can try to flash the bios with a newer bios file. (This may fix the bios). Download the bios file 1001 & bios- utilities from this Asus link.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=P5V-VM%20DH&SLanguage=en-us
When contacting Asus please write down the number found on a white sticker located on the pink LPT port. You will need to open your case & look at the LPT port to see the white sticker. If flashing the bios fails you can still buy an updated bios chip through Asus online E-store at this link: http://estore.asus.com/shop/
You do not pay Asus for repairs or replacement, only shipping to Asus is on you.

Good luck!
Mike

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.

It sounds like you're trying to overclock your CPU, and you have exceeded what the CPU is capable of, under the current conditions. When you start the computer, enter BIOS setup (e.g. press the DEL key), and adjust the CPU settings to default. If you're not sure how to do this, choose the "LOAD OPTIMAL SETTINGS" or "LOAD DEFAULT SETTINGS" option from the main BIOS menu. If you are not getting this error until after Windows has started, then there is software installed that is trying to overclock the CPU for you. Uninstall it. It may be a program provided by Asus, or may be a third-party program. It will probably have "tweak" or "overclock" in the name. Overclocking can achieve an increase in performance, but will void the warranty, and does reduce the lifespan of the parts, and tends to make Windows crash more often. It can cause immediate failure of the parts. It should only be done if you understand and accept the risks, and have decided the reward is worthwhile. For most users, it is not worth it.

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.
