cpu e8500
mb ep45 ds4p
ram 2 gig corsair dominator
psu 650w coolermaster extreme
vista 32bit
latest ati drivers installed and bios stable

if anyone can help that would be sweet :)

Your not touching the autotune are should only check off the enable overdrive and then confirm it can change your fan speed to around 40 percent or more then hit apply.......if you can't do these things reinstall the latest may have other problems if you can't get it to work

So wait.... are you OCing your GPU? And are you using the auto OCer or manually?

I used the auto one then reset it and set it to about 5MHz lower and haven't had a problem. Then again I have a HD2900Pro 1GB so might not work the same.

Sounds like you certainly have a faulty card have never listed your card what kind is it and is it a 512 or 1g card?....You might try reflashing the bios on the card.....
