GPU stuck at minimum clock after overclocking, until reboot

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
In a nutshell: Overclocking my GPU reverts it to minimum core and memory clock speeds until I reboot.

Detailed explanation:
I've got a 9800m gs (Inside an ASUS GV50vt) and have recently tried to overclock it from the stock of 530mhz core and 800mhz mem. When I open MSI Afterburner and move the clock to anything above stock, the core and memory speeds revert to their minimum (400 core and 600 mem) in games until I restart my system. If I reboot and start a game and use Afterburner to monitor the core and memory speeds (WITHOUT adjusting the clock on either one) It runs at stock speeds, until I try to raise it as I mentioned earlier. I have tried to use other tools to overclock, but the same thing happens. I can't figure out what's going on. I am using the latest driver for my card from the Nvidia site, it was doing the same thing with the previous driver that I had as well.

From what I can gather, it seems at though the GPU is reverting to its 2D clock even while in 3D applications after I adjust the clock speeds. Any tips?

a 9800m "GS" won't overclock... frankly you shouldn't be trying to overclock anything in a laptop; the cooling solutions just aren't effective enough.
