Hi Guys,

I have a desktop computer with the following config:

- Intel i5 3.3GHZ
- Asus P8P67 Pro motherboard (B3)
- Geforce GTX 275
- Creative Sound Card
- 4 GB RAM
- Windows 7 (64-bit)
- 2 TB HDD
- Cooler Master PSU (forgetting model no.)

I have been using my pc for close to eight months and have had no problems so far. I have played numerious games and things have been good.

Yesterday at night I was just browsing the web when my pc hung up. I was surprised. But after I tried to reboot things went haywire.

After powering off and on, the system would shut off for a few seconds and then turn on again and then bios gave an error message "overclocking failed, please check bios setting (something)". I have not overclocked my pc. After getting into bios if I get out, windows 7 would start booting but in 2 seconds my pc would stop responding.

Later my pc failed to bootup, nothing happens on screen. In the motherboard, the red light CPU Indicator would be on all the time. I am puzzled, what should I do ? Sometimes it does boot but after giving overclock error, when windows boots it hangs instantly. I tried cleaning up the ram etc but no success.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Try resetting your bios to the defaults.

Try resetting your bios to the defaults.

That did not help. After trying to experiment I think either my psu isnt working properly or my mb is gone.
