EZ-Tune's Auto-Tune hosed my Windows 10
« on: November 22, 2015, 12:28:28 am »
Today I used Gigabyte's EZ-Tune to overclock my system. I chose the "Auto-Tune" setting and let the software test and reboot my system. In the end, it determined that my system would be stable at 4.7Ghz, a 17% increase from the CPU's 4.4Ghz defaults.
I then did a full shutdown of my computer and did a cold restart.
When my system got to the Win10 lockscreen, I had no mouse or keyboard functions. Changing USB ports made no difference. So I pressed and held the power button to shutdown the computer, but as soon as the system powered down, it automatically restarted. I thought, "Hmmm, that's weird. It's never done that before". This time when it got to the lockscreen the mouse and keyboard were working and I signed in to Win 10, but about 30 seconds later, my system locked up totally. As I was reaching for the power button, it shut itself down automatically, and restarted itself again.
I let it do a full start and it did it again, so I assumed, that my system truly does not like this overclock setting, so as the computer was rebooting I manually entered the BIOS and did a "Load Optimized Defaults", and reset things in my BIOS to the way they were before the overclocking endeavor.
I should be able boot normally into Windows normally now, but I was shocked that my Windows 10 is still locking up right after I log in to Windows and it's automatically shutting down and restarting.
What's going on? Is my Windows 10 install hosed somehow?

You could try resetting cmos. With power off, remove the mother board battery for a few minutes.
Put it back in and restart. Go back to bios and adjust to your liking.

I have never heard anything positive about "Easy Tune".
