Hello saviors,

My laptop keeps giving me the following message,

Warning! System overclocking failed, Press on restart and:
1. pres F2 to en Bios setup-menu
2. press F9 to load standard Bios-setup
3. Press F10 to save and quit

Wel obviously i tried this, but message keeps on apearing. Also i cant hide the message, so my laptop is not working at the moment. Any heroes out there that knows what to do?

I've seen this before, either mine and somewhere else.
from memory it was corrupted BIOS and I had to set it back to default settings, which I assume is what your 'load standard bios setup' would have done.
if not, look for something in the BIOS along those lines - reset back to factory settings.
you'll know if you are successfully as all your settings will be wiped - that won't matter in the grand scheme of things - except for the date and time, the other settings are performance tweaks more than anything else.

failing that, remove the mobo battery and the mains power and try turning the PC on.
obviously it won't turn on, but that will drain the residual charge in the capacitors.
put the mobo battery back and then connect the mains and see how that goes.
