My\nbios froze on me one day and then I had to reset the CMOS to boot up\nagain. At that poin in time, my cpu clock speed was 146; it had\npreviously been at 170 for 11 months straight with a 80mm tornado fan\nbut I decided to underclock it and run it at 146 clock speed.\nTemperature has never been a problem; My heatsink and airflow are\nhuge. Temperatures of my CPU have been around 50 degrees celcius with\nboth fans and clock speeds. The bios now freezes everytime I try to\nup my cpu clock speed from 133 to 146 (146 makes my cpu an even 1800+\nin quantum speed). The bios freezes after it shows the cpu and the\nquantum speed but it shows the wrong quantum speed. It reads 1600+\nbut it should really be 1800+ because I changed the clock speed to\n146. Also when it freezes, there is no ram count but it shows the\nspeed of PC2700 (146 CPU clock speed).\n\nHere are the things I have tried already: (in the order as they\nappear)\nchange CMOS battery - resulting in the same freeze\nflash bios using epox utility - resulting in the same freeze\nchange the slot that the ram was in - resulting in the same freeze\nchange hard drive - resulting in the same freeze\nunplug hard drive and boot - resulting in the same freeze\nunplug the cd-rom - resulting in the same freeze\n\n\nPlease remember that I have been running a more aggressive setup\n(2200+ speed) in the past with absolutely no problems. My BIOS has\nonly given me problems now and I have tried all the above solutions in\nthe past week with no resolve.
