AMD Overdrive stopped working

My motherboard is a gigabyte GA-MA78LM-S2H. It has the AMD760G chipset. For about a month, the AMD Overdrive program worked fine under Windows 7 64-bit, but as of this past weekend, it no longer will work where it fails to start up at all.

Looking at the AMD website, I see that my chipset is NOT compatible with AMD Overdrive. Why did it work before? I didn't update my BIOS or anything. I just find it curious that it was working on a board it should have and now, it no longer works? [:isamuelson:8]

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

UPDATE: Well, I figured out why it was working before. I had installed the Gigabyte utility called Easy Tune 6 installed. Apparently, I uninstalled this and that is when AMD Overdrive quit working. I reinstalled Easy Tune 6 because I wanted a way to overclock via software without having to reboot into the BIOS. That's when I decided to reinstall Overdrive and lo-and-behold, it works now!

I suppose I could just use EasyTune because it does give me pretty much the same options as AMD Overdrive.
