Need help for MSI Afterburner

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! Recently, I picked up a MSI GTX 560Ti Twin Frozr II, did a clean installation of the graphics drivers and MSI AB, and have met with a problem with AB.

Firstly, I can't seem to get the shader clock slider to show no matter what.

Secondly, upon opening settings, I get only the settings configuration options seen below in PICTURE 2. I believe the normal settings menu is like PICTURE 3 (at least that is the one I am familiar with).

I've reinstalled different drivers multiple times, as well as different versions of MSI AB to no avail. For the life of me I can't get complete control over AB as the settings seems restricted. Any help?

In picture two it looks like the window is just sized too big to fit the rest but maybe I'm missing something.
Your shader clock is locked at 2x the core clock on 4 and 5 series cards so you don't really need the slider, I'm not sure mine shows it either but just letting you know in case you weren't aware.

My settings window definitely gives me all of the tabs though.

Yeah, but the problem is I can't resize the settings window smaller to see the other tabs at all (if there are any).

Really want to figure out why I can't see any of the advanced configuration tabs...really quite irritating.

Thanks for the help though!

You could try right clicking on the taskbar and cascade windows or some of the other options, I think there are probably better ways of doing it but that should resize all open windows for you.

@Baldy, looks like normal to me your Afterburner smile.gif but not shader clock, My Afterburner 2.3.0 with GTX580 shows shader clock and I can slide it just like core clock and memory clock.
Have you checklist for unlock voltage control?

Talking about Afterburner 2.3.0 have the same problem shown in picture 2. Am using a 1366x768 screen and it either shows the Ok / Cancel buttons at the bottom, or access to the options tabs at the top. Depending if ive got taskbar set to hidden or not when its opened, will show either top or bottom, but playing with that or cascade after its open will always lock it into showing the options tabs, only theres no way to toggle it to reshow the Ok / Cancel buttons to finalize changes, only option is to close the menu

There was a similar problem with 2.2.0 which i just uninstalled, but at least playing with hide task bar, allowed me to toggle between showing the options tabs and the Ok / Cancel buttons when done.

Also guessing this is only a problem on the lower rez screens, so curious if anyone else installed it on system with 1366 screen, what theyve found

Edit: just installed 2.2.5 and remembered the old workaround toggling hide taskbar didnt show the Ok/Cancel buttons again, itd just show like 1 or 2 pixels of the tops of the buttons so could still be clicked; with 2.3.0 its been pushed below the edge of the screen
