    Exclamation Can't Change Back To Stock CPU Speeds

    I have been trying to set my CPU ( P4 2.4 w/ HT) back to its stock speed, but it won't let me! Everytime i set the CPU overclock to 0% on my Asus P4P800 it fails POST and says "Overlock Failed" (or similar), then changes it back to 5%, then reboots. Havent tried overlocking it more ie. giving it 10% but surely it should let me revert to the CPU's original speed! Any help greatly appriectiated.

    you wha? Are you using some kind of "on the fly" program to overclock? I didn't know overclocking your CPU works in percentages.

    Otherwise, go into the BIOS, change the Front Side Bus speed or change the multiplier.

    Could be RAM timings or anything that causes the PC not too boot - the ASUS boards just through up the message if the initial POST fails. Try the default settings options as Russ says.

    The % overclocks come from Asus's BIOS as well - it's their 'easy overclock' options....
    Now go away before I taunt you a second time.

    Right, well had a look through the overclocking part of my bios. Finally discovered (coz i dont like messing in BIOS's too much) how to change what i think is the FSB. The one im looking at for the FSB is called "CPU External Frequency" and ranges from 100-400. Yes it is the Asus easy overclocking thing, because when i changed the setting to manual, it gave me several options like:- CPU External Frequency, CPU Vcore, DDR Reference voltage, AGP/PCI Frequency, amongst others. Going to try the default settings thing, but do you think i could change it back manually if this doesnt work? And am i right in saying the CPU External Frequency is FSB? Thanks again

    EDIT: Changed back to defaults, everything is fine. Thanks a lot for all your help!
