    I installed an A7N8X Deluxe in my PC, upon bootup it says that the CPU is being over-clocked, and it boots up in safe mode. When I went into the BIOS it says the speed is at 100 MHz, which seems to be the slowest it'll go.

    What am I missing and how do I change it?

    What CPU are you using?

    If it's one of the newer ones, you may need to flash the BIOS with a more recent version.

    Or a jumper, you could find the manual and go over all those things, and make sure there isnt a multiplier off or something like that.

    Don't know where you came up with this suggestion:

    "If it's one of the newer ones, you may need to flash the BIOS with a more recent version."

    But you are sending him down a dangerous road without a lot of evidence to suggest that! He could wind up with a useless MOBO if he makes a simple mistake! :eek:

    Dannyboy is going down the right track....your resulting processor speed (or O.C.) is going to be the product of the Multiplier and the FSB setting.

    I Googled: A7N8X Deluxe

    and read some articles on the specs for your board. They said that the MIN FSB was 200Mhz rather than 100Mhz. Unfortunately they did NOT specify whether the FSB was set via Jumper or BIOS.

    So, I would suggest that you refer back to your MOBO Manual for how to set the Multiplier. Check what it is actually set at. Also look up FSB setting, and see what it is actually set at.

    Come back with your findings AND let us know what Processor you have so it can be determined what the Frequency SHOULD be.

    I have that mobo, the FSB is set by the bios, not a jumper. definitely check the multiplier. I have that board running a 1.8gig athlon 2500+ that is OC'd to 2.2gigz. I have my FSB set to 400 and my multiplier set to 11.5. it runs nice and cool at 118F idle.
