Hello Support,

i have to try it in English... soooo

Since i've bought my ATi Readon HD3870 i have one big problem.

If i Unlock the Ati Overdrive in the AMD VISION Engine Control Center my Card crashes (in games or benchmark tests). I have the problem without overclocking the card, it's enough if i only unlock the menu of OverDrive...

So i dont know what to to because the Card is a bit old and i dont want to buy a new one i have very nice cooler and want to overclock my card but it doesn't work..

Other programs like atitool also dont work on my PC i CANT overclock the card..

 

(sorry if my english is bad)

 

Rest of System

AMD Athlon X2 5200+ (overclocked to 3010Mhz)

OCZ DDR2 - 800 2x 1GB 

ASUS M3A AM2+ socket

ATi Readon HD3870 512MB

Samsung HDD 260 GB

Hitachi HDD 260 GB

Windows Vista Home Premium 32Bit (i know... its bad... )

 

Edit : I have installed the latest drivers for all my hardware.

The thing with older gpu's and cpu's, you need to give them more volts than they usually used to ask. You would need to overvolt and overclock it using msi afterburner.

Yeah but it also crashes if i dont overclock, it is enough to crash if i only unlock the "overdrive" menu in the graphic driver without any clock changings.
