Is it supposed to rebuild the registry database each time I copy over the config file?

btw, it still doesn't work, I guess this thing just can't be overclocked or something. Thank you for your help, I really do appreciate it.

I used the GPU-Z log file while running L4D2. In the attached file you can see that during the majority of the time in the loading screen the settings changed to 3d low power to 2d starting from 10:41:50am, gradually decreasing and then shooting up to 3d full power once the game began at 10:42:04am.

Is there a way to stop it from defaulting to the 2d settings during the loading screen I wonder?

EDIT: I managed to get the settings to stick this time, probably because I had restarted the computer since. Unfortunately the crashing still happened when I played L4D2 right after to test :(

What are your full system specs and driver version?

Your graphics card might not be supported since it is a mobile card.

You shouldn't, I use it with my GTX 470.

Although at this point I find MSi Afterburner and eVGA Precision to be better for the newer GTX400 cards. Rivatuner has gone so long without an update that it doesn't offer some of the nice features, like voltage control, and the others offer.

815/1000(Core/Memory) are my final 24/7 overclocks. The memory might have more in it, but I didn't bother to push futher.

MSI Afterburner is the better program, IMO.

Why do choose to revive a thread that is over a year old? Rivatuner has become dated since this thread was dated and you would be much better off simply searching for a guide on how to overclock with MSI Afterburner.
Thanks for rep:toast:
I using RivaTuner-GPUMonitor for PC.
What I set This???

Rivatuner doesn't support the HD6000 series. It is best to use MSI Afterburner.
