Question Help with Boot Failure due to overclocking

Hi,

I haven't used my PC in quite some time, but have recently set it up again, wiped it and upgraded to Windows 10. However, when I start it up (this was the case before and after wipe/upgrade to OS) it shows the error:
"The system has experienced boot failures because of overclocking.
Last settings in BIOS setup may not coincide with the current H/W states.
Current CPU Speed : 21.0 x 200MHz
Current Memory Speed : 1333MHz
Current HT Speed : 2200MHz"

Here I can enter BIOS setup or continue. If I continue, I get to a blue screen asking me to choose between Default, Last known good or just continue to boot.

If I choose anything other than continue to boot, it just loops through these menus.

Once I'm actually on, it works fine, maybe a bit slower, but fine.
You can probably tell I'm not overly knowledgeable on computers but any help would be massively appreciated.

Specs are:
OS - Windows 10
Proc - AMD FX(tm)-4170 quad core 4200 Mhz
16GB Ram
Not certain what else is required, but thanks!
P.s I know it's not the strongest, but I'm not planning on using it for any big games, mainly editing.

Thanks for the reply. I know how to reset to default, but can you advise how to ensure I have the latest drivers installed that you mentioned?
