As for more tweaks you can download the omega drivers!

And uninstall your drivers first reboot then install the omega drivers! There great and add a overclocking utility inside windows

Yes the omega drivers are much better. They are ati drivers just pumped up! They wont hurt your card any. I use them just pick what os your using at the top of the page at the download site and make sure to get the nvidia drivers and uninstall old reboot install omega drivers

HuckerJ oc your cpu all in all overclocks you video card a little as well if you do not have an agp pci lock in your Bios. But 3dmark01 does use a little cpu power. But 3dmark03 test alot of your cpu.

Only do it by like 4 or 5 steps at a time first up the core then the memory. keep going untill you see white specs all over the screen, back it down a little bit and you will have a stable overclocked card

well, I heard the starting gun, and the gates opened, but this horse ain't runnin.

I installed 3dmark2001 se & it's first action was an alert:

3dmark2001 se was not able to detect the required minimum features in your 3d accelerator. Please ensure your Direct X installation is working properly and that you have the proper drivers installed.

I guess that makes my score zero

any tips? :thumbsup:

You can download the lates version of direct x.


http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/default.aspx

and update your video card drivers

back in the stables, I fed the poor horse and talked with raw 'bout the lame start o' mine.

I had direct X installed, confirmed by: start>run>dxdiag (nice new-to-me MS utility)

At last reload of OS, I skipped the install of the VGA drivers, having done only the MSI system drivers. (not to mention my failing to notice the screen resolution wasn't set at 1024 x768 as before)

so, just to let you know, I've run through the demo... very active indeed.

I have only the NVIDIA GeForce4 MX Integrated at present on my mobo.

Results of the test will be forthcoming. :thumbsup:

I've installed the RadClocker and overclocked my card, but my scores are actually a little lower! :thumbsup: Any idea why?

The card is an Radeon A9200SE.

If I use the ATiTool, do I need the "softmod" drivers? A message come up saying that if my card's settings were reset after restarting, I need the softmod driver. I tried installing the driver, but I didn't seem to work. Also, when using radclocker, I went from 200 and 164 to 255 and 255 speeds.

Thanks

nooo you dont want to go that high :thumbsup: ...Set the core from 200 to about 225 and memory from 164 to about 180. I am suprised you didnt blow up your card!!!!Once you do that you have to click SET then at the bottom USE CURRENT.Then Run the test. Just wait on the ati tool. You dont need a soft mod to run it!
