I'm actualy posting this for a friend, not that it matters, ok so he has Win Xp, Nividia 8800, Conro 6600 and one of those mainboards thats made for overclocking i belive an asus. Well so my friend was messing around with the overclocking features of his motherboard alot latly. I was reporting artifcats in games and many crashes. After the most recent crash he started getting artifacts from the bios screen all the way to windows. Also windows will only start in safe mode.

That imageshack link doesn't work.

Has he stopped overclocking? If you overclock too much you will get artifacting. Also, does he have any way to tell the temperature of the graphics card? It might just be running too hot.

The easiest way to fix this is to short the CMOS jumpers to reset the BIOS to default values. If you can't locate the jumper, then you can just unplug the system from the wall and remove the CMOS battery (it's a shiny think about the size of a nickel). Leave it out and unplugged for 30 minutes, then reassemble and try to boot.

Overclocking is a very complicated subject - and random attempts at it often lead to unexplained failures. I remember when..... :thumbsup:

A basic principle of overclocking is one change at a time - and a lot of testing to ensure stability before making the next change.
