Overclocking is a guaranteed way to get random hangups. Put it back to
its recommended clock and it might work fine. Keep in mind that while
this may not have shown up before, overclocking gradually degrades a
processor's stability (trust me, I ran several 486 and pentiums and even
a k6-2 down to where they wouldn't even work at the normal clock). Try
sticking it back to normal.
