Hey all. i made the mistake of allowing myself to succumb to boredom and i overclocked a comp at my school from 2.66ghz to 3.3ghz. tecnhically everything should've gone fine, the ram defnietly could take it. it basically wouldnt start up after that so i had to reset the bios. After that i booted up and it came to the windows xp login screen. i entered my username/password and the domain i wanted to connect to and it gave me an error like: "Windows could not connect to the domain, the domain controller is not accessable or is down. Contact system administrator." I set everything in the bios back to what is was. Any ideas?
