    Intel Extreme Tuning Utility - Computer will not start




      I just attempted to use the auto-tune setting to overclock my computer to "slightly above" the default settings and after about thirty minutes or operation the computer shut down and will not restart for more than 30 seconds before shutting down again.  I have to hit the power button to get it to turn on, it had gone thru several series' of restarts during the auto tune process, while it was running. there is a black screen with a cursor on it during its attempt to start up but it just ends up shutting down again.  I'm hoping I did not make any mistakes, I simply chose auto-tune to avoid any errors. I believe it was Intel Extreme Tuning Utility 2.1, I cannot find out now since the computer will not operate.
