Power failed during MSI P67A-C43 B3 bios update


Download the latest BIOS update from your computer manufacturer's website onto a USB flash drive. Refer to your user manual to obtain the manufacturer's website address. If the downloaded BIOS file is a zip archive, unzip the contents onto your USB flash drive. Jumper settings may need to be reconfigured on some motherboards to enter BIOS recovery mode. Most Intel-based motherboards have a jumper setting or switch near the on-board CMOS battery. The procedure for setting the jumpers will vary depending on your motherboard make and model, so refer to the motherboard documentation for specific instructions. Power on the computer and press "F2" to access the Setup Mode menu. If you are unable to access the setup menu, you will not be able to proceed with this repair. Take your computer to a repair shop, as the motherboard may need to be replaced. Use the arrow key to select "Boot Priority" or a similarly named field. Press the "Enter" key. Scroll down until "First boot priority" or "First boot drive" is selected and press "Enter." Select the USB flash drive as the first boot priority device. Press the "F10" key to save this setting and exit from the setup menu. Connect the USB flash drive to an open USB port on your computer. Then let your computer fully reboot. The USB flash drive should be detected and the BIOS should update automatically. When the update is complete, you may be prompted to restart your computer, or it may reboot automatically. If you are able to use your computer without any further problems of overheating or failure to recognize drives, your failed BIOS update has been resolved.

Bios error - won't boot - clock or BIOS time keep getting altered


Firstly, replace the small watch battery on the motherboard.

Secondly, look at the motherboard and get the model number off it, example Msi 6472-1. Then look up the motherboard model on the manfactures website, and there should be a updates or update bios tab or link. Click and follow on screen instructions. Some manfactures automatically identify your board on their update page.

In the system settings, press del on boot up, ensure clock speed is set to auto or to manual what it should be at, same with the ram settings.

As a last resort, sometimes dust build up on the processor pins or ram causes silly errors, simply remove, safely clean and reinstall.

Lastly, is there a application in the task menu of windows that can alter the clock speed depending on usage? Check settings.

CPU (processor) speed dropped to 1.09GHZ


Go back into the Bios and change the settings back. If this does not correct the issue you may have another issue. If this is a laptop you can reset the bios by locating the Bios reset switch, usually appears as a pin hole on the bottom of the computer, if this is a desktop then you need to use the Bios Reset jumper on the motherboard. It sounds as thought Windows is not reading the CPU type and speed correctly so you need to undo the change you made to get it back up to speed.

AMD Turion 64x2 Processor Upgrade Problem


Yes it's the BIOS, which holds a list of supported CPUs (with the right min/max settings for Vcore, FSB, multiplier (or HyperTransport as it's called for AMD chips), etc.). When you put in a newer unrecognized CPU, it either runs at a failsafe (very slow) setting or won't boot at all.

The only solution is to flash a newer BIOS version which supports the CPU. I searched the Acer website and found the newest BIOS version 3315 (dated 2008-12, which is pretty new imho), which you can download (including the required flash software) here: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_3315.zip?acerid=633643256207419447&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5050&OS=V10&LC=nl&SC=EMEA_18

Perhaps you already have this BIOS version and I'm not sure wether your new CPU is supported by this BIOS, but you might give it a try.

Please note that flashing your BIOS might fail & brick the laptop and is at your own risk, but when following the instructions carefully, it's only a very small chance things go wrong. I've done it a dozen times without any problem ...

I have a amd semporn and accedently overclocked it


Next time you boot, go into your Bios and change the CPU settings back to normal. It's possible you did fry the processor but unless you set it back to normal you'll never know. Best of luck with your problem.

How to overclock a pentume 4 processor


Increasing of FSB (processor clock) from 10% up to 15%.
from 1700Mhz you can get 1850 Mhz.
from 2400 Mhz you can get 2640 Mhz
from 3000 Mhz you can get 3300 Mhz
but not all mater board allow this do.

CRITICAL TEMPERATURE


Hi there
The processor will become critical at around 49c - 54c, but that shouldn't matter.
If you are wanting to overclock it you should be looking at more cooling for the system, a bigger fan and heat sync for example.
also set a fail-safe in the bios for the system to shut down near critical temperature.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

WINDOWS XP PRO SERVICE PACK 3


First off, please use proper case. All upper case makes it look like you are shouting. Thanks.

Try removing everything you can possibly remove from the outside other than the monitor. Remove any cards inside not needed to boot (sound, NIC, modem, etc.).

Disconnect mouse and keyboard, too if it will boot without a keyboard. Some systems will halt at the BIOS screen without a keyboard.

When you have a minimum config for booting, boot and see if it stays on. If so, one of the items disconnected is the culprit.

If not, reconnect keyboard (if disconnected) and boot into Safe mode by tapping F8 after BIOS screen. See if it will stay on in safe mode. If it will stay on in safe mode, problem is O/S.

If it won't stay on in safe mode, see how long it will stay on at the BIOS screen. If it will stay on indefinitely, you could have flaky RAM or possibly hard drive. Power off, unplug power cable, remove hard drive and see if you can boot to the Windows CD. If it will boot up to Starting Windows and stay on, probably not RAM although that is not a definitive test. At that point, I'd try another hard drive and see if the O/S will install or try wiping and reloading the original hard drive.

Let me know if you need more help.

I accidentally changed my CPU clok frequency from 100 to 250 and now my computer won't boot?


Ok I realize this is old and you may have given up by now or gotten it figured out, but I'm gonna try to help even with that being said, first of all I just recently had the same problem, this is a sure fire way to fix your issue,
step one, open up your computer so that you have access to the motherboard,
step two, find the system battery.
step three, near the battery there should be a jumper, this will be a little plastic piece with metal connectors inside it, it should be slid onto two pins out of three available, move it over one space meaning if its on the left and middle move it to the right pin and middle pin, the three pin pole should say cmos right by it, or clear cmos.
step four remove system battery, no need to worry this is just the memory for the cmos chip and it will revert it back to when the board was new, you can change the settings in your bios program back to what they were when it last worked,
step five, making sure that your power cord is not hooked up to the computer in the back, (no power to computer) press and release your power button a few times, (this will drain the capacitors stored power)
step six, walk away for about 20 minutes, just to make sure that clearing of cmos was a success,
step seven, replace cmos battery.
step eight, move jumper back to original possition.
step nine apply power to the computer and boot up should be operatioinal again, you can then go back into your bios setting and change as wanted, however I would only overclock a little at a time as boards will only handle so much overclocking before they will freeze up, i would not go more than 200 mine froze at 200 so you may not even want to go there, Hope this helps.......

OVERCLOCKING


The 800 MHz seems to be your system bus speed and not the CPU speed. They a related but no quite the same. Overclocking is usually defined as forcing something to operate at a higher speed than it was designed to. If you changed the 800 MHz to 1.6 GHz in your BIOS then yes it could be considered overclocking.

One thing I would like to mention is that when changing clock speeds in your BIOS, do it in small steps, if done in large steps it can cause system instability.
