That's a very strange situation. My overclocking settings are fully functual. Here are some brief suggestions,
>Try reinstalling the drivers completely. Delete the folder that contains previous settings and freshly install a new one.
>Somehow your card cannot be overlocked? There are certainly other programs out there. Try subsituting AtiTool instead?
>Briefly browse through tray tool whether you accidently disabled overclocking. Advance tweaking, profiles, etc. are some suggestions.
Well I hope this helps...Good luck.

I've never had that situation.

Try installing the Omega Drivers for your card. It comes with a copy of ATi Tool which allows you to overclock your card as well. Perfect blend in my opinion. Optimized drivers with an overclocking program.

Well, I don't see much difference between Ati tool and the tray tool of Overclocking capabilities. It pretty much is the same. I actaully run both the same time! I d favor the Tray Tool's FPS speculation while playing games. The top right corner is pretty cool. In the end, overclocking is very similiar.

In the overclocking settings, there are three categories.
Overclocking
Timing
Fan
All of these is within AtiTool! They are very similiar..

if anyone else wondered the problem was with ngo driver installer. it installed the ati tray tools and disabled overclocking for some reason. i installed it myself and there is an option to do so but you just leave it unchecked and woila!
