Sounds to me like OCing is being disabled either by the driver or the BIOS. Have you tried other driver versions?

The original drivers tend often to be locked, so no overclocking. And if you install on the top of them, the new drivers may also stay locked - that was the case with my HP/Compaq. Only after driver cleaning the new drivers started to overclock - the latest one I use is 177.40 with the original INF which happens to support my Quadro card and overclocks via nTune or RivaTuner.

remember to restart into safe mode, then run driversweep. otherwise the DLL files wont all be uninstalled
