    Hello,

    I purchased one of those "xp unlocking kits" to unlock my xp 1800+. after doing all the work, i tried changing my multiplier, (increase/decrease) . but my system "fails to boot due to overclocking". thats what the POST says. any clue whats wrong?

    Are you trying to start it in an overclocked state? Also maybe the unlocking was a failure and the CPU is shorting out. If you tried starting in an overclocked state which is to high then clear the CMOS and set it back to default and try again. :smokin:

    well, i tried 10x (lower multiplier) and 12.0 which is 0.5 higher.
    none worked. before unlocking, i could set any multiplier i wanted, it would just not change the speed. now that its unlocked, the only multiplier that works is 11.5. so yeah, im guessing that ive messedup my unlocking somewhere. i did it twice and it didnt work. hmm...i also did reset the CMOS. no luck.

    In the stubstrate is a fine grounding mesh and if any of that gets touched it shorts the CPU out. Would probably be best for you to remove the unlocking and just rely on the FSB to overclock if the CPU hasn't been damaged. :smokin:

    Well, its working fine right now... i thought i did a pretty good job hehe. i covered all the laser cut valley's then applied my conductive material. i'll probably remove it in a couple of days if i dont find any other solution to it.
