View Full Version : got this problem...

Well I have this problem where my pc will post but the OS won't load at all. It doesn't give me any error messages or anything it just freezes on the post screen. I was wondering what could be the problem ? BTW my cpu is overclocked but I've tested it and it was prime95 stable for like 12 hours. :retard: any help would be much appreciated

can you list your system specs? what is the last message you see when booting?

asus p4c800-e deluxe
p4 2.8c
enermax 430W
geforce 6800

actually the last thing it says is: " checking nvram... "
then it freezes there.

Usually this type of hang will happen if your RAM timings are to aggresive for the FSB you are running at or you have bad RAM.
Try increasing the Vdimm (2.7v is safe if you have decent air flow) or slow the RAM timings

One of the first things I always do is set everything back to stock and see if it will boot up. Than I change one thing at a time to see what the culprit is.

(Man I love this one: :nanahump: )
