Hello all, new to the boards
Here are my specs first, nothing special really (nothing overclocked):
Windows XP Pro
Compaq Presario SR1403WM
AMD Sempron 3000+ @ 1.8Ghz w/ stock cooling, Heatsink w/ Fan
Socket 754 Asus K8V Mobo w/ Phoenix Award Bios
512 MB PC2700 RAM
PNY Verto Geforce 7600GS 512MB DDR2 w/ stock cooling, Heatsink w/ Fan
2x 80GB HD: 1x Hitachi SATA, 1x Samsung IDE
400w King-Yes PSU
Let me know if I am missing anything.
My BIOS does not have any options to control CPU clock, FSB, or anything like that. I tried the ctrl + f1 thing, that did nothing though. So what I did is downloaded the overclocking software ClockGen and got it to work with that. Heres the problem: When I shutdown, after doing ANY amount of tweaking to the CPU clock, it goes through the normal shutdown process, but then after Windows closes out, the power light blinks, and the boot light is orange, meaning there is CPU activity. It just stays like that until I press and hold the button, forcing it off the rest of the way. I dont think there is any problems with heat. When I turn it on(the CPU clock resets when I reboot) and check the temp through the bios, it reads 45C, software reports the same temp in windows as well. Under 100% load for about 6 hours, it got up to about 56C, still not overclocked yet(Using Prime95, the middle option for max heat, power, etc.), also no errors during calculations. Overclocking to about 1.9Ghz, it gets up to the same after about 10 minutes,and no errors, havent checked on longer durations yet. Any ideas why I have that problem when I shutdown? Or any ways to get the options to show up in the bios?
