As the title of the thread says, I am new to linux and ubuntu. I made the switch from Windows 7 after spending the last 3 days trying to fix a problem. I had a lot of help from Overclock.net and I tried everything but it was no use. So out of frustration I decided to switch over to linux after confirming it was not a hardware issue.
I have an ASUS z77 sabertooth motherboard running the latest firmware (as of a month or 2 ago) and I'm trying to overclock my cpu to run PCSX2. I've successfully done this in windows. I have the bios/uefi settings done correctly so that it's running at 4.2 ghz, and i've used it under windows for months now without a problem.
My comp is an intel 920 i7 on an asus p6t v2 mobo. I was working fine on 10.04 or 10.10 I don't remember which. During the install of 11.04 the OS would crash on boot with an error that said "No human readable MCE decoding support on this CPU type". The error went away if I turned my overclock off.
Now I have 11.04 installed and running with the overclock off perfectly.
