Can't OC AMD Radeon HD7970M at all, having trouble with any fixes as well.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright my extent of searching google has left me at a dead end.
I've seen plenty of threads about people overclocking their HD7970M graphics cards in their alienware/clevo laptops and mine is just stuck.

When I install MSI afterburner have to mod the config file for it to even let me push the clocks higher. and if I do even by just 10 or even 5 MHz, the card starts to freak out, so I downloaded sapphire trixx and tried with that.
It tells me that UPLS is enabled,
So I found a thread here via google telling me how to disable UPLS, I change the registries and reboot, still says its enabled and I can't oc the card.
I've tried the dell OEM driver and it doesn't help, and for some reason if I try to load GPUZ it freezes the entire laptop. the UPLS dos tool says that the UPLS registery doesn't even exist but sapphire trixx says its enabled.

I've tried using the "discrete GPU only" mode on the laptop(Fn+f7), nope nothing changes. same problems. mad.gif

What the hell else am I doing wrong? I'm stumped.
I've tried. AMDs cleaner tool, restart in safe mode and use driver sweeper, doesn't help, it only gets rid of 2 DLLs.
Still nothing helps. should I do a complete uninstall and then driver sweeper+CCcleaner?

I really don't want to reinstall my OS and start from scratch, I've already got all my tweaks done and its a pain in the ass to do.
Any insight or help would be great.

First of, what driver are you using? Really good driver for overclocking is 13.5 Beta 3. My card isn't a good clocker either but I play games fully stable @ 920/1450 and gives me extra 6 - 7fps depending on the game and 6,890 score in 3dmark 11 with 3630QM.

Running stock with these drivers I get 6,640 points.

In my MSI AFterburner CFG file I have the following:

[ATIADLHAL]
UnofficialOverclockingEULA = 1
UnofficialOverclockingMode = 2
AccessibilityCheckingPeriod = 0
UnifiedMemoryUsageMonitoring = 1

I haven't got an issue after that. Let me know how you go with this driver.

Um I figured out how to OC it. I figured out that i ended up corrupting my driver install and i just did a clean install, and I managed to pull a P7711 up from P5890 biggrin.gif

Was just a bad OS install, but i fixed it.

What I would like to do is figure out how to downsample on this machine with its built in machine. If you have any insight on that, i'd be greatful.

Damn what overclock did you get to achieve 7711 score and what drivers?

I can't seem to go past 960/1500 frown.gif even at these clocks I get 7,100 score.

What do you mean by down sample?
