I think I overclocked too much?
I am using an AMD K6-2 450 or 500 megahurtz processor, i'm not sure of what motherboard it is, but i changed the CPU speed from 450 to 500 megahurtz. now, when i try and bootup, nothing happens at all. the monitor doesn't come on, all that happens is i hear some whirs and ticking sounds, then nothing. you know, like if it were booting up, but after that, it just goes silent. can anyone help me with this? i need some help, bad.
i have a k6-2 500 and am overclocking it to 523. i have found that if you push this thing even 1 or 2 MHz more than what it wants, it won't do anything at all. it'll whine and not boot up and stuff. you might want to try and turn it down from 500 to 475 or something like that. the k6-2's weren't that good at all for overclocking, by the way.
Wohh that CPU can't be overclocked much at all.
if you take the heatplate off, then you can usually get a few more MHz out of the thing, but not much.
why overclock a k6/2 450 to 475 or 500??? can you really tell the difference?
thats not even close to how fast a eye blinks. i can see trying to overclock if you can increase the speed from 25% to 50% faster but anything less than that is dumb in my eyes.
a duron 750 can be overclocked to 950 but i would not attempt it. but I wish you luck .
I have K6-II 450, runs @ 550 no prob's, then again I also have a K6-II 500, don't even run @525... And yes, heatplates are off.

Re: Overclock ??
itz kinda of like tuning up a race-car, itz not just one big tweak, itz a lot of lil' tweaks that equal one big tweak. itz like taking the cpu up a lil' and the graphics card up just a few more MHz. itz making the pc100 ram run at 112MHz. those lil' things alone may only equal a 5% boost, but added together, you can get something like 25 or 30%. thatz in my eyes anywayz.

I got pie!!!
I thought overclocking was about getting the little buggers to do things they ought not too. Who gives a shoot about performance? If you want performance, buy the latest offering from the big boys.
Anyway, I've got a K6-II-500 and it won't even go to 550. However still going strong, although it's getting replaced by a Cel 700 at the end of the month.
Yer i had the same problem, i clocked it way to far and my computer went dead..it wouldn't even start the BIOS anymore, just Clear your bios. How to do this should probally be in your Mainboard manual.
if your cpu did fry take it out and see
You probably just need to reset CMOS. Check your manual for your motherboard, it should show you how to do it. That is your processor's way of telling you it doesn't care to run at the speed you attempted. If you never got anything, it shouldn't have fried anything. Clear CMOS, and reboot, and then reenter all your CMOS info (date, time, etc.) reset to default on your fsb or processor speed (maybe auto?) and hopefully you will be back to where you were. Good Luck, and I hope it works out for you.
