Firstly, Dont flash your bios just because you cant overclock it, Dont mess about with the multiplier at all and set the mobo back to default settings, Set AI overclocking to manual, Set the PCI E frequency to 100, Disable cpu spread spectrum, Disable PCI E spread spectrum, Set your ram frequency(to manual) at 667Mhz(lowest divider) manually (for now) and leave everything else on auto. Then raise the FSB to 366mhz then save and reboot. you need to download a program called orthos to test your rig for stability using the cpu/ram blend test. If you have followed this and it will not work you might have a hardware problem.

When will people learn to read up on overclocking before jumping in and changing settings that could break the pc you spent shed loads of money on, Unless mummy n daddy bought it.

Have you tried just typing numbers into the clock and multiplyer areas when highlighted.

My P5K deluxe does not have a menu for the FSB etc, you just highlight it and type the new number over the top, pressing enter does nothing.
