Hi I'm new here and quite new to OCing ive been reading through your forum the last few days about overclocking the system I have.
I've read pretty much all of the lengthy P5N-E SLI thread and other OC threads and have made some progress on OC my CPU and Memory but I've hit a brick wall when trying to overclock my GPU.
I've tried a few ATi CCC (v 8.12, 9.2, 9.3) and when I goto Overdrive I get the same problem with the "not properly initialising message" except I've never been able to use it and I've not been able to initially unlock Overdrive.
I've looked on this thread and tried the methods mentioned, first I tried ATI Tool but the ATI Overdrive 3 options greyed out (I guess because I've never unlocked it before on CCC) I dont know how to use the Auto OC tool (what do I have to do to work it?) and when ever I try to use the manual OC settings even if I just increase core or memory by just 1 and click OK or apply the computer instantly restarts and doesn't increase when it loads back up.
So I went back to msconfig as advised above the hotkey poller is ticked and started but the ATI Smart isn't started and when I try to start it I get a message saying the process started but stopped instantly because it wasn't needed. I'm guessing this maybe the problem why CCC's overdrive wont work so how can I sort this out?
