I know this may sound as a strange or even mad question to a lot of people, but how do I turn off overclocking? I have a PC with a AMD Athalon chip in it and it has a huge fan with copper tubing. Until a day ago the system ran fine, but now it seems to jam and reboot itself a lot. I was told that the issue lay either with the over-clocking  or my power supply.

The problem is possibly twofold.

1. Dirt on your heat sink and fan, i.e. dust and grime (happens over time)
2. Powers supply on the way out.

The first issue is easy to check, just open the case and clean out the heat sink and fan

The second isn't easy to spot, but try unplugging some of the expansion cards from the mobo and see if it runs ok after that. If that has no bearing on the performance, go back to issue #1
