Overdrive not seeing I have an AMD processor

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Short story. AMD Overdrive is throwing up an error after the disclaimer stating that it can't detect an AMD processor. I guess Cyrix made my FX8320 and DFI made my Sabertooth 990fx r2.0.

Anywho, Looking for some advice. I just tried the newest release, and that didn't help either. BIOS release was 1/2013.

I had this problem a while ago myself. I think I fixed it by running AMD's cleanup utility.

PS: DFI made AM3+ motherboards. A better example would have been EVGA tongue.gif

Oh, wait. I don't need a cleanup! This is a fresh install of Windows 8 Pro. Didn't have any previous versions on this current install...

When I encountered this problem, I hadn't made any hardware or driver changes either (except GPU drivers over time). When Overdrive gives that error immediately upon startup, it probably means it didn't find a specific Authentic AMD line of code in a driver or the registry. In my case, re-installing my drivers from scratch fixed it.
