    Yep I had MS .Net 2.0 installed. I also tried installing that... and then reinstalling it again.
  9. in ati tool you click find max core and it goes until your video card crashes, then do the same with max mem. you then go start - all programs - ati tool - ati tool log file. which tells you the last amount it was at before crashing move the sliders to about 20 bellow that number and click new. then try games and stuff if it crashes turn it down a little more and click save, keep trying until its at the highest number without crashing

    What it is MS.net and where I find for install? I have on my PC video card Saphire ATI x 1600Pro 256 Mb and after installation of Catalist I can't change nothing because he demand "Administrator right"?
    I fallow step by step the instructions at the install. And much more, in setting of video I don't see video adapter tab. So, no advantage to use this video card!
    After first installetion, it's works verry well.
    Please help me to fix that!!!!

    Isn't it harmful to the card to forcefully overclock to the point where it crashes?
  16. Are you using the older seperate version of the ATI tool, or are you using the one that comes bundled with the Catalyst Drivers. The older stand alone ATI tool will not work with the newer versions of Catalyst Drivers. .

    I'm using ATiTool 0.24 from Techpoweredup. I didn't know there was ATiTool on the driver cd, is there?
  18. I used to have a version of ATI tool that I used, don't remember exactly where i got it from it was a while back. Anyway, at one point when I downloaded a newer version of Catalyst (the full version) in the release notes or somewhere it stated that this version was no longer compatable with the ATI Tool, or could cause the utilty to hang, so I uninstalled it.
    But the Catalyst package (again, the full package, not the smaller version that is divers only) has an overclocking utility built into it.

    Yea the full package has ATiOverdrive. But what good is it if I can't even start up CCC?
  20. yes it can damage the card if you do it like every day but the reason it crashes is because it reaches a point that tells it to turn off before it is damaged. ati tool is compatible with everything except for temporal anti aliasing and alternate pixel center (and those are only when its actually running the 3d thingy those functions work when you aren't actualy doing the over clock)

    Ah I see. But what if you let ATiTool go for teh max clock and just leave it on for hours? Or minutes.
  22. however long it takes to crash

    I pop up ATiTool. Then I tell it to find max clock. Then within liek 5 seconds, my monitor goes blank. Then minutes later, it's still blank.
  24. that means it crashed so try getting max mem then cause its already pretty much high as your gonna get

    I see :O
    But I've had trouble (read previous posts). I did the find max clock thingy and check the log but it didn't say what the max clock was in the log and I'm afraid to keep doin the find max clock thing for fear that repetitively overclocking way too high would kill my X1900 :(

    Ps. Wow you kids respond fast... sometimes.
  26. thats why you just watch it until it crashes and remember a number close to were it crashed

    ps. ya we do
  27. Just get a better card, the 7900GT or GTO would be good to you and you could then use coolbits to OC easily and safely with any and all versions of driver software. :twisted:
  28. your totally not helping not everyone can just afford a new card and the x1900 is an amazing card
  29. Yeah, I know I've just had a few beers and I'm feeling down because Valentino Rossi lost the Moto GP championship, so I thought I'd have a pop, sad excuse really but there it is.
