Default Hmmm OC troubles?

Hey i was ocing my CPU. I have a 4200+ wich as you know runs stock at around 2.2 Ghz. i get to around 2.2 and a half Ghz and it starts encountering errors such as "c:/startup is invalid or currupt" or just dosnt get signal from the monitors. Is this common? Do i just have a really bad OCing CPU?

thanks.

1. Whats your CPU voltage?
2. Whats your RAM voltage?
3. What is your ram set to latency wise? 2.5,3,3,8? 3,4,4,10?
4. What frequency is the fsb set to?
5. Whats your cpu and system temp stock at idle and full load?
6. What brand ram do you have?

cool... i was locking up at only a 120mhz overclock, but eventually played with it enough to run pretty stable at a 380mhz overclock. Steep learning curve...

try the stock voltage first, if the system became unstable then maybe increase the voltage a little bit but i've never increased my proccessors before. my 3200+ venice running at 2.5 and x2 3800 running also at 2.5 i guess the stock voltage is fine if you don't overclock it too much.
