    Unhappy pc wont boot after slight overclock

    Hi when i tried overclocking today my pc turned of while running prime95. now it won't boot and my powersupply makes a little buzzing noise.

    specs
    amd phenom x6 1055t
    x2 asus 6870
    870A-g54
    kingston hyper-x 1600 Mhz 4x2
    silverback 620w


    i ran prime95 for about 45 minutes before the crash and i was constantly checking temps and they maxed at 45 celsius.
    my FSB was at 245 when the crash occured

    Fine
    When you say it won't boot: what exactly happens? Also did you tweak any voltages or anything or did you just adjust the clocks. The latter should be pretty much harmless.

    That's the most generic response I have ever seen without proper explanation.

    Since you aren't seeing any lights or fans spinning, it could be that your PSU is gone like FangedBeast mentioned.

    Disconnect all power to your pc, Including the little flat battery on the motherboard Leave your pc unplugged for an >Hour< When you reconnect your pc after that hour it will reset to factory settings (so no overclock nothing else will change)
