I didnt know you could over clock video cards. Lol I have an old 32 mb radeon card so I dont think it can even be overclocked.

Although it shortens your cards life. And you can OC anything that isnt inigrated.. Anyways.. Thats unusuall.. Maybe you need to update the drivers. Through task manager..


Control panel > system> hardware > task manager

I think!!

ATI card you cannot overclock the Core Speed or the RAM speed more than 50 mhz, it will not work or the card will just not work.
