    For the past several betas and the final release of ATITool .26 I get a blank screen, or it will have colored stripes across it. I have to reboot every time I've tried running it. It installs with out any problems at all but when I run it it will always make my screen go weird. I have looked over these forums for some time now and have not been able to find a solution to my problem. Here is the log file if that will help at all:

    Rather strange this has been happening to me 5 times out of 10 when using the tool just to set a small overclock manually, the screen will go really corrupted looking like I can barely see anything on the desktop, and like 100's of distorted squares, rebooting it goes away. I'm not sure but I think the cause "for me" may be a "not so good" winflash. This only really has been happening since my last bios flash, the card and clocks I use it at are very stable. This is with .24 atitool and catalyst 6.9. I think maybe I should reflash with newest winflash version or reinstall the tool.

    Hi,
    I've got the same Problem! I've a fresh install of WindowsXP Sp2 updated until October..
    My CFG is:
    Intel Core2duo E6300 - Asrock Conroe945g-Dvi - Sapphire X1800XT 512MB - 512Mb DDr2 533Mhz
    After installed windows, i've installed 945Inf driver, and all other drivers needed, then Net Framework togheter with Catalyst 6.12
    Then i installed AtiTool (lastest version) installation completed without any problems..but when i start it here's what happens (of course when i'm lucky, as all times monitor freezes and need to force reboot it):

    And if it runs after waiting 30secs or more..It gave a lot of arctifact in ATITOOL Window only:

    [​IMG]


    The card hasn't any problem..i run 10x3dmark 03-05-06 without any problem-arctifact..
    I play every day 3-4hours to Fps Games such as Farcry, Enemy territory and Oblivion!
    No problem at all also with DirectX9 App and OpenGl! I guess that the problem is in Atitool...
    Please help us out! ;)
