Couple of days ago I turned on my computar and my monitor wouldnt turn on, it was just stuck on stand by. After hours of restarting, fiddling with wires etc etc the monitor turned on, and on the first thing you see where it displays your conputar parts etc, it came up with the phrase "Host CPU Frequency not set" and then froze, so i restatred again, and it was fine. now ive had this problem for a few days now havin to keep restarting for hours and hours sometimes and today when it turns on after 25-30 minuites it freezes. Maybes its to do with this frequency thing? if so how do i change it?
Any ideas would be greatly appreaciated ------- Exhile

Have you been in the BIOS and changed the CPU settings in an attempt to overclock.

Enter the BIOS and reset the defaults and see if this helps.

you may be able to access your BIOS when pressing F8 repeatedley when the computer beeps the first time.
That has to do with what computer model you have
