    OCing is OverClocking
    a lot of strange stuff happens when you push the limits of your CPU and.or ram

    it sure looks like you have the wrong chipset drivers. best to save your data on the other comp and format the drive before reinstalling xp again.

    If ya do dump that mobo then do ya self a favour and get a nForce2 based one as the performance is much better.
