Exclamation this computers fked up, OC 5600 deep software issues

Ok so im on my girlfriends computer shes has a 5600 and amd 3000 400 fsb at 3300hz right now, early this month any game she would open would randomly reboot the computer. After some spyware fixes I thought that was tacken care of so now im moving on to overclocking. Her card now has artic silver5 on the gpu and some more fans on the ram. When I oc it, it will run fine at 400/600 originally 325/550, however somethings screwed up where games will randomly go into pixalations, so i use coolbits to set it back to starndard clocks and reopen the games and BW2, COD2, Gunz, Guildwars all come up messed up working but with major pixalation and sometimes BW2 runs fine when others dont so I know there some software conflict somewhere, mostlike what was giving me problems in the past.

Ive r/r the nvidia drivers but It could be messed up open gl? or direct x? can you guys help me troubleshoot this???? I dont think its heat, because that would fix itself at reboot or also when you leave the computer in 2d mode for a while


windows xp

Are you using an athlon XP 3000 or an athlon 64 3000? Either way 3.3ghz sounds a little high.

Another thing, heat isn't always the problem. Cards OC the same as everything else. Some just won't go above a certain clock speed. Try 375/575 and see how it goes. It sounds like it's just not handling the OC well.

For the reboots, if you are running windows XP you can disable that to just show you the blue-screen instead of rebooting. That way you'll atleast have some sort of message to be able to figure out what's going on. To do that, go to System Properties->Advanced Tab->Startup and Recovery->Uncheck the "Automatically Restart" box.

well the rebooting isnt 2 much of a problem anymore its just when i oc to a certain speed it screws up a driver or something till reboot idk, and the pc is prime95 stable. And it sometimes takes that oc fine 400... for black and white and will run for hours but there got to be a glitch somewhere because then in other games bam pixals, however the games still runs and now no matter what clock i set it 2 in coolbits every game lookes pixaled untill i reboot

this is a barton 32 bit

No friggin way is that barton running at 3000mhz.I would suggest it's stock speed of 1800mhz,the 5600 is not a great overclocker at all,lets see how high it will go before it fries.....oh well there goes $30
