Hello,

Today i installed my new Phenom CPU,
since it was running on 800mhz i did some research and found some posts
about changing the cool n quiet function in the bios to ''Disabled'' and the multiplyer to its default 17x.
After doing this the PC Crashed and didnt boot up anymore, can someone tell me if this could be caused by the changes to its stock settings?
Or maybe something else, im going to reset my bios now and see what it does, i hope someone is familiar with this problem and can help me out.

Thanks, JD

It certainly could! If your computer will not boot anymore, go to your mother board manual and find the CMOS Clear jumper. Follow the directions in your manual, which may include taking out the battery as part of the process and then reboot. This will reset your bios to the factory setting and it should reboot and you can start over. Anytime you reset the bios be sure you know what you are doing. What you may think are simple changes can be catastrophic.

It is a faulty cpu. I had a 125 watt version that worked for 2 months and it suddenly started running at 800 mhz even when it set the multiplyer manually. I put in a spare cpu and it ran properly. You should send it back.
