    i rebooted my pc and got this message: "the system was not correctly shut down and now working in safe mode speed" (asus / nforce setup)
    i can only get in to windows by disabling 'halt on errors' in the bios;
    the cpu is now running at about half its normal core speed - if i try changing any bios settings it hangs on warm boot - i have to manually kill the power.
    weird part is i didnt change anything before this happened. Any ideas?

    In BIOS has what you have tried included setting BIOS to default?
