Set CPU overclocking to x1

This is probably the most well-known method to solve this problem and is offered in many forum messages and videos on the Internet. It can be used to solve the problem that occurs when the CPU overclocking option available in the In-App menu is set to a value greater than x1.

We don’t know why it’s set by default and many users have had their share of problems solving this problem, but the method is known, so make sure you try it.

  • Locate the ePSXe main execution file and double-click it to execute it. You can also search for it in the Start menu.
  • Once the emulator window is open, click on the Options button in the menu bar and use the mouse to navigate to CPU Overclocking.
  • Be sure to activate the x1 option by clicking on it. Check if the problem persists!
