I tried to install the AMD Overdrive utility on a Windows 7 machine with the following hardware:
Gigabyte ga-ma790gpt-UD3h - 790GX chipset
AMD X3 720 BE
According to the AMD website, that should be supported by the Overdrive utility. However, when I try to start the program, I get the error message "AMD OverDrive failed to start". I removed the Gigabyte Easytune 6 software thinking that that may be conflicting but the error still appears.
I have read the links about overclocking on the site and in the end will use the bios to overclock but want to see what the AMD tool has to offer.
I get that error sometimes, but the next time I try to launch it, it works fine. I've checked, but I don't have any AOD options on my BIOS. It's possible you might have an older BIOS that doesn't support AOD. Otherwise, try reinstalling.
