When and where do u see this message? The operating system gives you the message or the BIOS boot up screen.
"crashed by overclocking." What does that mean? How can I fix it?
I don't think any microsoft operating system will give you such a friendly message for a overclocking crash.
It might be that overclocking is no problem at all in your case. It could be some funky virus/utility installed by your pet dog thats annoying you. I've not seen pc's rebooting due to overclocking, lock ups are usual but rebooting!!!??? Scan your drive for viruses.
Well, if its overclocking, make sure that no overclocking utilities are being loaded with windows eg, SoftFSB, CpuFsb which changes the FSB multiplier. Run any task manager and see if one of 'em is running or run "msconfig" and see what are being loaded with windows.
You can check the CMOS setup to bring down the CPU FSB Clock/disable any overclocking or do as gopi_vs said if the problem actually is overclocking.

In the land of Seatle, by the fires of Microsoft, the dark lord Bill Gates forged in, secret, a master OS, to controll all PCs.
And into this OS he put his greed, his malice and his will to dominate all computer media.
One OS to rule 'em all.
