BIOS doesn't accept settings!
My brother has a Celeron MMX wich currently runs @ 800MHZ
I tried to overclock it. There are a few settings you can choose from, I chose 850MHZ.
I selected save to CMOS and exit....then the screen turned black and I waited for the PC to reboot. But nothing happened???
So I put the power off and restarted the pc, and I saw that it was running at 800MHZ again(displayed during startup). So I got in the BIOS again...and it was somehow set to 233MHZ????
Then I set it back to 800MHZ and this time it rebooted fine.
Again I went in the BIOS and set it manually to FSB100 and multiplier x8.5.......Rebooted, but again the screen was black and nothing happened.
Again I put tha power down and restarted, the CPU was running at 533MHZ!!!(as it was set in the BIOS after I checked it)
It seems the BIOS doesn't accept other settings than 800MHZ, and it doesn't save settings very well.
Can anyone help me overclock the m*therf*cker????
btw: what does "turbocharge clocktime" or something mean? it was an option next to the CPU presets
