Ok, i was playing around with MSI's Overclocking program this one day... and although i knew it was a source of problems, i thought i'd try it out and see what would happen. Well i overclocked my 2.4C to 2.8 and it worked fine for a couple hours... then the thing started to restart, but temp on the CPU was normal... so it kept restarting and so i put the cpu back down to 2.5.. it was stable.. everything was fine. I finished up for the night and left some music running and went to sleep.. about 5 minutes after that.. the thing just turned off.. like the computer stopped.. not only did it crash.. the fans turned off aswell. Now it doesn't even turn on, it just lies there... inert. immediatly i thought it was the power source. Luckily i had a friend that had an extra power supply, so the next day i switched them to check.. still nothing. I've heard two possibilities. a.) the Mobo has fried b.) the CPU has fried can someone try and clrify which one it possibly is, or even if it's both so i can remedy this asap. the 2.4C shouldn't be too expensive now a days.. P.S would changing a CPU and MOBO require me to re-install windows and format my HD's? please PM me u comp Guru's..
