I was able to undervolt my CPU to 1.000v!

Does anyone else have the 6864fx?

does anyone can give me some tips/advise of what kind of software should i use to erase all the crap from my 7811fx? I just got it and i would like to delete all the junk.

p.s. or should i do full reformat and installation? but actually i am lil bit scared of doing full format and fresh install because this is 1st time for me using vista, even though for last 2 hours i was playing with vista and noticed that its not that much different from xp. How about installation of os? is it a lot more different and complicated than xp? because installation of xp pro and drivers was piece of cake.
Thanks in advance for any kind of help/advise

edit: and yeah it was $1250 and after taxes it was around 1350. I dont know if i did the right thing getting basic 2 year warranty for 200$? but yeah so far i like this lappy. takes lil bit to adjust to keyboard and vista, but i should be fine.

you dont need any software, just go through the programs list and uninstall anything along the lines of Netscape, netzero, etc unless you actually plan on using them also, on the search go search supercharge vista or something along those lines. imo they're wasn't too much bloatware on the computer so yeah

oh and youre lucky you got it after it went on sale, i now have to go back to best buy to get my $200 back

How about fresh installation of vista? is it different or very similar to xp? i am planning to install ultimate 64bit. Oh yeah, is it possible to install xp pro 64bit on 7811?
and yeah just go there and get your money back, and then buy a lot of beer oh yeah and i got free pc game of my choosing (crysis) so u can do the same, sell it and get some more beer hahaha

edit: what is up with monitor blinking? sometimes it goes off for like 1-3secs and comes back. veryyyy annoying. is it just me or that happens to everyone? maybe i got faulty 7811?

edit2: my lappy came with only one dvd (vista installation), so if i'll do fresh install does it mean i would have to find all the drivers on internet or someting?

edit3: ***ffff, sometimes when i type computer screen goes off, and then in few secs comes on in login screen. It states my user name and it says locked or sometin. Then i login back and when i try to type someting it goes off end never comes back. whats going on?

Everyone needs to make sure they create an apps and drivers disc (go to recovery manager). Once you do that, you have one of the best and easiest ways to restore a computer.

Whenever you restore you use the OS disc then go to device manager and right click anything missing and have it search the disc and it automatically installs. Gateway makes it so easy to install a "clean" OS

ehh not really sure about that but my does the turning off the screen thing but i think that is something that has to do with mine being idle for a long time. it definitely doesnt do it ever 1-3 seconds

Has anyone installed the laptopvideo2go.com drivers with the modded nvidia INF/drivers? I tried to install them last night. All went well but once I restarted the ability to monitor GPU temps in Everest Ultimate is gone. I wonder if its some sort of special driver for these?

That is pretty weird because taht is all I use and have no issue monitoring temps. Can you use HWmonitor or rivatuner to see temps? It may just be the specific drivers you used though.

Im thinking it was possibly a driver issue aswell. What version are you using? Could not hurt to try the ones you are using.
