[HELP] Overclock Problem with AMD Overdrive

I have the AMD A6-5400k APU and i overclocked the Graphics chip using AMD Overdrive, to a stable point

Last week i tried to overclock it even further then it crashed

my problem is that i forgot to change "Load settings at boot" to FALSE.

now everytime AMD Overdrive starts my computer crashes (Computer Freezes)

I tried to Uninstall/Re-install but after every re-install Overdrive somehow manages to keep the old settings(registry or some place other than AMD Overdrive folder) and keeps crashing when i Start Overdrive

Please help, thanks

  1. start windows in safe mode, then remove the overclocks

    The only thing i can do in safe mode is manually delete the overdrive folder in C: drive. If I try to run overdrive in safe mode it says "cannot detect an AMD CPU", so there is no way for me to change the clocks
  3. another good reason to use the bios to OC.

    after the uninstall, did you run anything like ccleaner?

    I didn't run anything else after uninstall. I tried to reinstall a fresh copy but it still keeps the old settings from previous install

    yeah i would uninstall it. then looks to see if any files(overdrive) remain on your system. delete them. run a cleaner, for the registry. restart pc. see if that works.

    settings are stored in an xml file even after overdrive is uninstalled.

    from what I can tell u need to
    1.uninstall overdrive
    2. delete ur install directory manually.
    default for windows 7 was C:\Program Files (x86)\AMD\OverDrive if your going back to default settings u don't need anything in it.
    3. reinstall overdrive

    I just tryied this on my system and it worked. Good luck
