CPU speed and cold boot problems

  dunderheid 14:47 30 Oct 2009

I have posted on this forum previously about not being able to do a cold boot, but was unaware of this!

My processor speed is supposed to be 1800MHz.
In the BIOS it is registered as being 1533MHz
I have been unable to do a cold boot whereby the PC goes through the POST routine.
Now I find if I reduce the CPU speed in the BIOS to 1150MHz the machine will go through the POST routine and perform a cold boot without any trouble.

My question is this, what is wrong with my system that has caused this to happen?

Requires less volts to power up?

I am Spartacus could well be right - your voltage setting is too low to run the processor at full speed.

Also it could be:

your FSB Strap is at the wrong setting which is causing your RAM to run too fast.

Your CPU is overheating at full speed

Your northbridge voltage is too low for a full speed FSB.
