Hmmm.... I thought I had that.
If you don't, you get those errors. Vista and Win7 have it "built-in", so it's not much of an issue anymore, and has been forgotten.
If you do, then it might be time for an OS re-install. Make sure to update the OS before installing vga drivers.
Let us know if you did or not and if you didn't if downloading it fixed your issues.
wow man lots of os problems 3dmarm 06 and actually most of the lower 3dmarks see little to no gain from oc of the gpu's while games etc see tons of it. the programs like 3dmark scale with your cpu more then your gpu. so tjhe higher you oc your cpu the higher your cpu and gpu scores will be.
Yep, any little overclock on the CPU makes the 3dmark 06 score jump a considerable amount.
I uninstalled everything ATI and popped in the xp cd and repaired my windows installation, then re-updated to sp3. And nothing has changed. My OS must be corrupted in some way caused by that stupid "auto-tune" feature in CCC crashing my computer twice. Ohh well....I somehow knew better than to use "auto-tune" I just didn't listen to my own advice.
EDIT: well, here goes....installing Windows 7 Ultimate 64 with a flash drive.
as for 7, get home premium or pro, and get an OEM version, not an upgrade.
far cheaper, no real loss of features.
Back up and running with Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I think things will go smoother now
Good luck bro, let us know how things go and how you like W7
sorry i missed you bro
imma add you in a few
Hey don if you want you can add to my list the c/f'ed 4870's I had. I had a Sapphire and a Visiontek 4870. Need some pics?
well, I'm not too happy that I cannot install Firefox or Thunderbird in 64-bit, apparently after trying a few times. Now I must figure out how to retrieve my profiles. I think I like it though most definitely, just not sure about the 64-bit.
have you restartet? i cant install ff without restarting after a fresh win7 install
meh, i know you love that old rig of yours so yes, i demand them
but if you could tell me what chipset, size and cpu you used with them it would be great bro
@SNiiPE_DoGG if you could tell me you prev. chipset along with cpu that you used with those cards it would be great bro
My X58 setup bro. The 920 with evga 3x sli x58 board. The cards were 512mb versions.
Here you go:
CF 3850 was Q6600 @4ghz + DFI X38
CF 4870 512mb was Q9650 @ 4.2ghz + DFI X38
Voltmodded 4870x2 on q9650 @ 4.3ghz + DFI P45
(Forgot about this one B4)
CF 4890 on AMD 955be @ 3.8 + MSI 790fx
you certainly can, and you shouldnt need a reboot or anything.
all 32 bit apps work in x64, its only drivers that dont.
I tried installing FF this morning and it worked fine. Thunderbird next.
EDIT: Thunderbird works fine, and I finally got sound, too!
My swiftech H20-220 Ultima XT should be here tomorrow...then I'll see if I can squeeze 3.2GHz out of the old Opty.
Im having a hard time getting over the 2nd time my 4870 died on me, Id play BC2 but it just isnt the same. that 4870 really made a huge difference to BC2
I have some good news and some other good news.....alright!
My CPU is not as much of a bottleneck as I had thought for my 2x4890s........after monitoring the GPU usage during a GTR2 race, I see that the cards are hitting a maximum of ~70%-80% usage. Everything just seems way smoother and better with 7 x64.
And the other good news is the HD audio is awesome when driving an F-1 car
Love your new avvy ny looks awesome
Thanks....I'll get an even better one though.I've always liked your avatar, too.
theses are pics when i use to have my 3870 & 3850 in CF and when i use to have a 3870X2
ATI cards rule , i also had for a brief moment a 4850x2 but it died on me didnt even have time to take apic of it.
You sound like you are enjoying W7
yeah its good for sure, and i totally forgot I post a link to my drunkiness
but thanks I try lol, rez and IC Diamond tim is in but just waiting for the pump
Well my rig crashed on me last night after about an hour of racing Dirt2 when I had the cards recklessly overclocked without testing to 901/1000. I set them back to stock and all was well for 3-4 hours of straight racing. My system thrashes Dirt2 even with the cards @ 850/975. I'll test them out for max OC later on.
