Hello everyone, I recently purchased a Clevo M570A w/ a 7800GTX Go 256 card. This thing is wonderful. So far my best 3dMark05 is 6945.

I am having one problem....O/C'ing the card.

I can adjust the sliders and test it, but if I apply and exit the settings it will be back to stock speeds when I reopen the O/C window. Can anyone help me? I am not going to rest until I break into the 7000's, and I think I need to o/c or I'll never see it.

Thanks in advance for you help.

By demand here is the link for the 7800 overclocking guide:

http://www.notebookforums.com/showthread.php?t=117648.

Thanks for the thread....I was very close to reflashing the bios, when I came across the sager forum on that web site. It explained that all the sager/clevo people who can OC the card is because of the drivers!....A simple and total uninstall of current vid drivers and a reinstall of the modified INF laptopvideo2go.com drivers tricks the system into installing the desktop 7800gtx drivers in which OC is available.

I am now OC'd stable at 440core/1200mem, and scored a 7478 easily in 3dmark05...

Thanks!

I followed the instructions on that link for updating my Dell XPS M170 card and for some reason once I make the CD and reboot, I hit F12 to get to the manual boot screen, select me CD/DVD drive and then it continues to load windows normally. In other words, I cant seem to the r drive prompt or to a place where I can issue commands. Is there some trick to putting the file on the cd that I'm missing?

Thanks,

Laz

I had the same problem at first, until I went into BIOS and made the CDROM boot before the HD by changing the boot order sequence. Try that, if you made the cd right, it should boot.
