see what I mean? confusing I know...
That happened to me - I tried OC'ing like mad (I was gunning for 3.7 or 3.8ghz, I forget) and rendered the system unstable.

The reason why it'll "save" in the bios but run on different settings is that there is apparently a safe 'shadow' bios that is triggered due to the unsafe setting and it runs off that instead of what you specifically set.

I reset the bios by shorting the jumpers with a screwdriver and didn't have an issue. Although you already said you did this and it didn't work until you swore for 5 minutes

I don't know what to say!
