AMD Overdrive being silly

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, my friend finally talked me into buying something AMD powered, an a10-4600m equipped toshiba needless to say compared to his a6 it leaves a bit to be desired, I blame windows 8, but that's beside the point. I got really bored decided to see if messing with some bios settings would help. Well there aren't any, so I moved on to OD. I was starting with the CPU first, slid the bar, said to turn turbo core off, so I did thinking I'll just turn it back on when I'm done messin around.

Well I slid the slider up to a safe and cozy 2.7 hit apply and... All the sliders move back to 2.3...so I was like screw it I'll just enable turbo core again and deal with some lag and upgrade my CPU later. Well won't let me re-enable it, the whole area is grey and unclickable. I haven't tried uninstalling it yet, but I don't see why that would work, though at this point I may try anyway. Also resetting to defaults doesn't work either.

Any ideas why the sliders won't stay when hitting apply and what I can do to get the turbo core back?

What is your exact PC model?

Try restarting windows and trying to run AMD OD again. If that doesn't work, uninstall, restart, then reinstall the program.

Make sure that the "AMD Overdrive" is enabled in CCC.

At work so dunno exact model number, but it's an s5000 series toshiba so def no bios, just limited hwsetup program. Restarting doesn't work, will try reinstalling a bit later though. I'll let ya know what comes of it.

Interestingly CCC doesn't exist, or exists as AMD Vision Engine Control or some such, no OD buttons, tabs or such. I've been running them as separate programs.

hello,
wise man say amd overdrive is drunk and should go home.
try changing your windows power option to high performance when gaming?, the auto changing of the cpu clock can have a bad effect.
watch your temperatures.

Well, reinstalled got my turbo core back decided to give up on the pursuit and focus on why it's more laggy than an a6 with 4 gigs of ram. Took the CMOS battery out and damn that ***** was hot. That however did get me into a bios on a legacy free Toshiba Satellite s5885d-s5120 where the only option I have as far as anything is dynamic CPU freq mode which is either on or low... Doesn't help me much there :/ think maybe it lags switching between higher and lower clocks?



Edit: I keep it in high performance
