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.
