    Any PC gurus out there - Blue screen - PC wont boot

    Hi Guys,


    Hoping for some help after I decided to see if my PC / Bios was running the memory at correct speeds after a PC rebuild. PC was running absolutely fine, but after watching someone on youtube change to XMP in bios to get memory running at correct speed, I decided i would try it as well. After changing to profile 1, i also loaded optimised defaults (not knowing what it did) and the PC has not started since.


    My system is :


    Intel Core i5-6600K 3.9GHz (Skylake) Socket LGA1151 Processor - OEM
    KFA2 GeForce GTX 970 OC Silent "Infin8 Black Edition" 4096MB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card **World
    Samsung 500GB 850 EVO SSD 2.5" SATA 6Gbps 32 Layer 3D V-NAND Solid State Drive (MZ-75E500B/EU)
    HyperX HX424C12SB2K2/16 is a kit of two 1G x 64-bit (8GB) DDR4-2400 CL12 SDRAM
    Gigabyte Z170N-WIFI
    Bios - F6
    25/10/2015


    Memory frequency 2133Mhz
    sys mem multiplier 21.33
    Profile ddr voltage - 1.2v


    I will try and upload a picture of error message. I can still get in to Bios and make changes, but nothing seems to work.


    I succesfully reset the CMOS, no difference.
    Also tried to load an updated bios, but USB stick not recognised.


    Hoping someone can help..

    Fixed - Plugged win10 usb in to back of motherboard, as opposed to using the side usb slots, removed all drives with exception of the one with OS on it , booted and now back up and running.

    Hehehe, indeed. A very good learning experience. I did actually manage to get the memory running at correct speed. I will probably leave overclocking the CPU though.

    Though we don't like to admit it, I think we've all done similar at some point.
    I know I have.
    Just 'cos someone else thought it was a good idea it doesn't mean we should. LOL.
