Error: Previous Overclock Had Failed


Dec 2, 2010
I have recently begun having boot problems on my gaming PC. Sometimes the system will enter an infinite boot loop when starting, and sometimes I recieve an error message at POST that states "The Previous Overclock Has Failed, and system will restore to its default setting".

I have never overclocked my motherboard, nor any of the components of my computer.

This is causing me quite a bit of consternation, as I have not the money to buy any new hardware, if that's the cause of the issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Motherboard: MSI P43-C51 LGA775
CPU: E7200 Wolfram Core2 Duo
Video Card: ATI RadeonHD 4870
