Ntune overclocking freezes my comp.

When I try to overclock my pny verto geforce 7300 gt my computer freezes. then when i reboot the screen is covered with artifacts that resemble one of those 3d pictures that you have to stare at for a minute to see. I only changed the clockspeed from 350 mhz to 400 mhz, yet in forums alot of people were overclocking this card to 500 mhz. What gives?

    my specs are: Asus A8M2N-LA mobo, amd 64x2 dual core 4200+, 2 gbs of ram, hipro psu 300w 19amps on the 12+ rail. Are you sure my machine can't handle it.

I have overclock my pentuim e2160 form amercan megatrends bios and my pc won't work

>UNPLUG the power cord to the computer.
>Remove the CMOS battery.
>Find the reset jumper on the motherboard, move the pin to the left two contacts, wait 30 seconds, return it back to default position. If you don't know where the jumper is, check the manual that came with your computer or check the motherboard manufacture website for a schematic of the layout.
>Replace the CMOS battery.... make sure you have the polarity correct! If you reverse it the computer may not boot.
>Replug the power cable in and reboot.
If this does not work, you have damaged something on your computer and you need experienced hardware help.
NOTE: Not all CPU's can be overclocked. Some are locked, and this is typical with a standard retail computer purchased at a store. Overclocking is a good way to get additional speed, but you really must understand what you are doing. You cannot just enter the BIOS and move up the FSB rating, there is a lot more involved. You can burn out your CPU very quickly if you do not have additional cooling, or your power supply wattage is too low to supplyt he additional power required.

Playing videogames and multitasking then it freezes (Crashes) then i have to hold down the power S/W to shut off then reboot. I have a Compaq Presario S4020WM. Have 2 512 ddr ram cards. have AMD anthlon...

Assuming your are not overclocking either the CPU or the GPU, and you have ruled out any driver/software problems.... It sounds like you may have the dreaded DB's (Dust Bunnies), or an under rated power supply (or a little of both). If you are overclocking, that may definitely be the cause (tone it back a bit). If you've had ANY driver problems, revert to your old drivers and see if that helps...

If you haven't cleaned out the insides of your computer for a couple of years, dust bunnies tend to accumulate, and make cooling components a tough job for any fan in there to do. Use DRY compressed air to clean it out with (an air compressor will work, just make sure it ain't spitting out ANY water). BTW, NEVER use a vacuum cleaner, it WILL KILL your computer (static buildup inside the hose will zap components).

If your power supply isn't way overrated for the load your trying to pull out of it, and you have a few dust bunnies in it, it too may need a good blast of fresh air. You may need to disassemble it (unplug it from the wall first) to get it properly clean, it's not as hard you think. Usually just 4 or 5 screws (not including the 4 or 5 that are holding it to your case). Just take note of how wires are routed in/out of it when disassembling it.

If after a through cleaning, your still having problems, then your power supply may be under rated for the power your trying to pull from it (or it says that it is "rated correctly", but is a cheap POS). Check your video card power requirements against your power supply, that's the thing that's going to **** the most amps. I like to use "name brand" power supplies rated at least 30% higher than what I plan to **** out of them.

BTW, make windows do a check disk (right click on C drive --> properties --> Tools tab --> Error checking button) to make sure you haven't corrupted your master file tables (MFT). It won't let you do it when windows running, but it will ask to do it on the next reboot (tell it yes).

Overclocking FAILED

This could be a number of things, memory, video card, communication promblems, I suspect its the voltage droping below the tolorance if it happens every once in a while. I would try plugging into surge proctor first.

Overclock an Intel E6300 on a GA-8I945GZME-RH motherboard

You need to check your BIOS. If you can overclock you will see a selection for CPU and speed in BIOS. If not there then your motherboard does not allow you to overclock your CPU.

Video card or Power supply?

well if you overclocked you video card you have to increase your video card voltage by using bios for not having a crash. this could be as well your overclocking problem. try to use your default video card clocks and sea what will happen. it could be becouse your psu is low on power four your computer components.

Foxconn or my processor fried while i tried to overclock my comp

Foxconn are miserable at overclocking and X2 - 6000 is a proc already overclocked from factory - you can't push it any further without a serious water cooler.
Reset the BIOS and hope it will start again, otherwise you will need at least a new proc.
