So yeah, first time post. I installed the ATITool .0.22 and ran it. Then I decided I'd softmod my 9800SE and wee if I could unlock the pipelines. Well, XP, for some reason unknown to me, won't recognize the drivers. I don't have SP2, simply because MS is stupid and didn't send me the CD (dial-up). I'm not sure what the problem is, but I had torollback the drivers for ATITool to work again. Also, after I installed the 4.12+ drivers, atitool came up with an error saying that no compatible device was found and that hardware acceleration and vertex shader 1.1 were required. I have no idea what went on during the process, but something wasn't right. Now, I have my old drivers and it overclocked a little. So, any suggestions as to how to get the 5.2 drivers to work and check the pipelines would be helpful.
