Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bits), Intel Core i3-2350M (2.3GHz) / Kingston 2x2gb DDR3
Hi again, trying to "overclock" my system, in the bios I've changed the memory speed from 650mhz to 800mhz, to equal the CPU FSB speeds and to see if doing this I could have some speed, I've saved the new Bios config and reboot, now is not booting, just start a few seconds and reboot, in a cycle.

I already pull out the battery and unplug the cord for a 10 minutes and nothing, I've used the 2 pins for clean cmos and nothing.

What happened?

Mobo: Intel(R) DG41RQ
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8400 @ 2.66GHz
RAM: Kingston 4GB PC2-6400 (400 MHz)
Video: nVidia GEFORCE 8400GS 512MB
Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio

✔ Best Answer
The Q8400 runs at 1333MHz FSB (333MHz frequency). To get the DDR2-800 RAM to run in sync, it should run at 333MHz frequency (667MHz DDR), not 400MHz frequency (800MHz DDR).

"I already pull out the battery and unplug the cord for a 10 minutes and nothing, I've used the 2 pins for clean cmos and nothing"

The power cord must always be unplugged 1st. And there's no reason to pull the battery if you have a clear CMOS jumper. With the cord unplugged, move the jumper to the clear position, wait a few seconds, then move it back. That's all there is to it. Waiting for minutes, hours, days, etc isn't necessary & won't make any difference...it only takes seconds.

BTW, have you revisited your other recent posts?
