Help! The usual - "Computer won't boot!"
I tried OC'ing and ran some torture tests with Prime95 with no problems while on the computer. My temps didn't reach anything higher than 55c for both CPUs. I quit the test and restarted.
I now can't boot into my PC. I tried setting the motherboard settings to "Load Fail-Safe Defaults" (Use this menu to load the default values set by the BIOS vendor for stable system performance.) and that hasn't worked.
At first I was getting an error saying how it doesn't have a startup boot device and then I checked the BIOS and apparently it got switched to the floppy drive option, which I don't have.
I tried setting it to the my SATA HD and tried to restart, but no luck again.
Then... after a few CTRL+ALT+DEL and going back into the BIOS screen, I don't even see the SATA HD listed as an option to boot with. The only thing I see is the fictional floppy drive, my DVDRW drive, my iPod which was connected at the time, and the fourth option as "disabled."
Anyone know the problem? My specs are below. Note, I have no cooler, running on stock.
I also used AMD's Overdrive application to change my HTT reference clock to 216 Hz reference clock * 13x multiplier = 2 808 Hz for the system.
