32bit Vista, Ntune overclock 8800gts

does anyone know how to change settings so vista will allow me to overclock my 8800gts. Right now i cant even overclock my video card 1mhz cuz vista is blocking me from doing it. i guess vista recognises ntune has some type of hazardas program. So it blocks it from working correctly. :( anyone?

  1. Try enabling coolbits in the registry.Coolbits is ok for over clocking nvidia cards.And it's right in the registry already so Vista should not interfere at all.Goodluck.

  2. Find the nVidia control panel icon on the start menu (its in there somewhere!).

    Rightclick, goto properties

    On the compatibility page, tick "always run as administrator"

    Thats from memory as I'm back to XP Pro x64 now as the nVidia 8800 drivers suck utterly.

    Alternatively, disable UAC.
  3. I have had no problems running the ATITool... works fine on an ASUS GTS 8800 640MB.
  4. ok i just downloaded ati tool, how did u get it to recognize ur 8800?
  5. Didn't need to do anything... just run in administrator (at least for Vista) and away you go.

    :( didnt work for me, it pops up with a message that says no ati video card recognized and wont let me adjust clock speed.. Where did u downdload ur ati toool from?
  7. Using 0.27... that the one you got? Sorry can't recall whether i got it from ATI site or elsewhere.

    Think I might have directed there from an Anandtech post.
