    Hi.... ive just upgraded from version .20 and when i rebooted my dell 1800FP TFT just goes to standby? ( yellow led) If i reboot in VGA mode ( winxp) and remove this new version and revert back to the previous version everything is ok. Does the new version alter refresh timings? as it appears that on reboot it throws my refresh too high for my dell to handle.

    The monitor is using the correct dell driver, but ive tried using generic plug and play as well. Ive had a friend who has the same issue with a different make of tft. I do not have ati-tool set to auto load either.... yet it still throws off the refresh somehow?

    Asus K8V-SE Deluxe
    A64 3200(1mb cache)

    Blank Monitor on Shutup?

    I had .20 version on working great with my X800pro on windows XP SP2, Monitor IIyama E511S. Now with .21 the machine starts to load up ok, but as soon as the reg key kicks in the monitor goes blank and no signal! Reboot in safe mode and remove and all ok again. Any ideas or similar experiences?

    My screen gets all weird and distorted when using ATITool 0.0.21. When i first loaded it up I noticed that my core speed wasn't at default so i set it to default. A few seconds later, my entire screen turned to static and my vpu had to do a recover. I have no idea how it did it because i tried it again and it didn't recover the second time. I had to restart the pc and unistall ATITool.

    Well ive had a good play and no other bugs apparent. Nice work on the fan control.... very useful!

    Moron Alert !!!!

    Hi again, IF I had bothered to look what the hell I was doing, I would have noticed that I had not defined anything in the 'Load on windows startup' just left it blank!!!
    When I'm wrong I say it, Sorry to trouble anyone.
    Thanks for Great Utility
