Default Bios

i was looking at my bios menu the other day and realized that my computer was underclocking itself almost .6 ghz. I tweaked around with them but everytime i would boot it it would get into windows hang then restart... i was wondering if anyone knows of a way to automatically set them to the right settings or any way to help me. thanks

When posting such an issue you will need to post all specs of the computer
Motherboard manufacture/model
Cpu (be specific)

No there is no magic program that will automatically set your bios to your Cpu

You provide the information above and we can get you there.
