Recently I have been experiencing strange crashes. The speakers sqwawk and the computer locks up. I went to the Bios and enabled the voice post and it said my computer was crashing due to overclocking...but I'm NOT overclocked. I have the multiplier, cpu clock, and vcore voltage set at the prescribed settings and everything else set to optimal. Any Ideas? Should I underclock? My system IS pretty old.

Might set to fail safe or default settings rather than optimal and try it again.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Or you could tell us which CPU you have & how you have it clocked.

XP 2000+ at 12.5 x 133Mhz?

Yes, It's an XP2000+ Palomino core. cpu clock 133, ratio 12.5, vcore volt 1.75. It's on an Asus A7N8-E Deluxe. In the bios optimal is supposed to be the most stable setting. The only thing I've tried is dropping the multiplier to 12.0 and that didn't work.I've run anti virus and anti spyware and have found nothing. When i try to do a deepscan it freezes, if I play a video game-it freezes. The voice post reports "system crash due to overclocking" altho I've never overclocked this board.
