All system specs are listed in my signature...
Okay guys - I believe I'm in deep doo-doo here.
I was preparing to do a system drive image backup, and wanted to make a few adjustments before doing so. My MSI motherboard came with something called MSI Control Center, which is a nicer GUI for making BIOS adjustments, overclocking, and a few other utilities. I came across a setting called Overclock Optimizer Lite. It is supposed to optimize all settings based on your system specs, if I understand it correctly. I'm not a big fan of overclocking, but since this was an automated process performed by MSI software on an MSI mobo, I decided to go ahead and select it. The program thought about things for a moment or two, and then told me that the optimization had been successful, that I needed to reboot for the settings to take effect, and would I like to reboot now? I selected the reboot option.
The system then powered down... And stayed down, completely, rather than restarting. Okay, I thought, just hit the power button. Nope... I can hear the fans begin to wind up for a few moments, then the system shuts down again. It doesn't even make it to the MSI splash screen, which I assume means that it's not even getting to the POST. I tried using a boot CD, but as I suspected would happen, nothing.
I haven't been able to track this issue down, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
