system failed due to CPU overclocking

  1. Hello
    I just built my first system, here is what I used:

    INTEL PENTIUM 4 631 3.0GHZ 2MB 800 EM64T

    P5ND2-SLI-DX ASUS P5ND2-SLI DELUXE NF4 SLI 1066F EM64T

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB 7200 rpm

    Sapphire Radeon 7000 64M DDR PCI Lite Ret

    LG GSA-H54N 18X/18X DVD-RW BLKINTERNAL BULK

    Mushkin HP2-6400 DDR2-800 2x1GB High Performance Series CAS 4-5-4-11 (996533 (2x1024MB))


    Here is my problem. When I start up my system I get a beep and "system failed due to cpu overclocking"
    Warning now system is in safe mode
    Please resetting CPU or memory frequency in the CMOS setup.

    I have the option to go to BIOS or continue into windows. If I continue into windows xp it boots up fine and everything works great. I have never overclocked my system and wouldn't even know where to begin to do this. I don't want to overclock I just want the error message gone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
    Thanks in advance
