I recently went into my computers bios, and changed the ram frequency from 667mhz down to 333mhz to compare the speeds, but after changing the speeds, the computer would not boot. no video, no hard drive activity ect. I already tried different ram sticks, same results. I also tried resetting the bios by removing the cmos battery with the power supply off, then discharging the capacitors. but once again, no boot. Is the cmos not clearing? Or is there a problem with the cpu or mobo?
I am running a intel core 2 duo
e6600 at 2.6 ghz (non overclocked) a radeon 5450 1gb, and 4 gb of ddr2 ram (4 sticks of 1gb each)
mobo is the intel d975xbx, as in the titlebios
Jarhead64, we don't recommend customers to change memory settings on their system such as downclocking or overclocking.
I would recommend you to remove all devices from the board, including memory, video card, power supply, CMOS battery, etc.
Leave the system disconnected out of the chassis for about an hour. Then, using minimal configuration, restart the system and try to access BIOS.
Once you are in BIOS, press key to run default settings and save. Try to boot.
