Can't overclock with amd overdrive?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I downloaded amd overdrive recently and whenever i go into it, all of the overclocking settings are dimmed out and unselectable. everything in novice mode and advanced except for the clock multiplier, hyper transport multiplier, and the first 2 voltage sliders.... also whenever i change the multiplier and apply, it works fine, but then when i restart my computer, it goes back to 2.3 ghz (9600 default)
pretty much the only reason i got the 9600 was to at least be able to clock to 2.7 ghz but if it resets on restart, that defeats the purpose... please help

i'd rather use overdrive, it saves a lot of time.. but regardless of whether or not i can oc in the bios, if overdrive isn't working, something has to be wrong?
