hi guys,
i am having a very weird problem with my Gigabyte Radeon 9000 64MB DDR , the original freq. is 250 core - 400 mem.when i try to overclock or even underclock it just a little bit (2 MHz only) the PC restart!!.
i used many utilities like V-Tuner, Radeonator 2, Rage 3d Tweak & Power Strip; and they all gave the same problem(restarting).
i guessed that there is some kind of protection in the BIOS of Gigabyte to prevent Overclocking, so i thought of flashing a new BIOS from other brands that make the same card like FIC or Powercolor, but am afraid that it can cause a seriouse problem and rune the card
so if anybody know anything about this problem plz helpme and if anyone try before flashing the BIOS of a VGA card with no problems plz tell me
thx

I've tried the latest builds of rage3Dtweak and powerstrip to try to OC my powercolor radeon 9000 (with cat3 drivers) . No luck so far. Like you, my pc just just restarts.

There is a lock in BIOS for the clock generator. You need a program to hack the card's BIOS. You can find out more at <A HREF="http://www.rage3d.com" target="_new">http://www.rage3d.com&lt;/A>

On win 2k/XP it reboots.

I hear that it is possible on win 98, but only with catalyst 2.4 or lower. Check <A HREF="http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?s=747bd05fc8... 9000&pagenumber=1" target="_new">http://www.rage3d.com/board/showthread.php?s=747bd05fc8... 9000&pagenumber=1</A> for more info (warning, post count exceeds 250).

Someone please corect me if I'm wrong.

Pretty please? I too have a 9000 non-pro.
