The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.

I have just started experimenting with overclocking my system and have gotten an error message:  

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x1000000a (0xfffffffc, 0x000000ff, 0x00000000, 0x804db973)

Can overclocking cause this problem?  I have set the bios to 115x which brings it close to 2000 MHz

I have:
Intel Celeron 4, original clock 1700MHz
512 Megs of RAM

Thanks for your help

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, overclocking can cause all kinds of memory crashes.  If you bring down the speed, the problem should go away.

    I would also like to note that overclocking some hardware can permentaly damage it. there are reasons why the manufacture set it at a certian speed.
