    Default Overclocking nVidia 9300M GS...problems.

    I was trying to overclock an nvidia 9300M gs in an acer laptop. (in sig)

    I first used NVIDIA system tools to do this. When I apply +10MHz to the shader clock, there aren't any prompts but when I apply even +1MHz in the core clock or memory clock, a prompts comes up and says something like "The settings are invalid and will not be applied".

    Then I tried RivaTuner v2.24 with no luck either. It just throws back the settings into default once I hit the OK button. What could possibly be the culprit?

    I'm using 179.48 drivers from the NVIDIA site, so could that be the problem?

    Thanks.

    I checked out the thread, though there were no relevant discussions to the 9300M gs there.

    You think I should get those DOX drivers or something?

    what drivers are you using? some drivers doesn't allow overclocking.
    Hardy once told Bertrand Russell "If I could prove by logic that you would die in five minutes, I should be sorry you were going to die, but my sorrow would be very much mitigated by pleasure in the proof". Russell agreed with Hardy wholeheartedly about the delights of proofs.

    Stated above. using official NVIDIA mobile 179.48 drivers, uhh yeah, I was thinking that too, so here I downloaded different drivers, thinking of testing them this night or something: DOX 182.46, DOX 185.20 and I think this is LV2G's 179.13 drivers.

    Oh, Mr. Penguins! Heheh.. Been reading your thread about the 9200M GS, and it's a quite hilarious bit at that.

    I've been jealous. I know you guys have DDR3, but my 9300M GS only has DDR2 and a measly 1641 1841 3DMark 06 score, meh.

    Yep, laptop's almost always plugged in. I don't think undervolting my processor is relevant to being able to OC my card, but yeah, I have mine undervolted and (although CPU temps get stuck) I reached a lowest CPU temp of 31C (!!!) in scorching-hot Philippines, while GPU is at mid-40's.

    So, there. PS I also downloaded most recent 185.68 drivers from LV2G, and then I'm gonna try benchmarking unOC'd 3DMark scores first, then try to overclock if (hopefully) possible.

    BTW, on a last note my default clocks are 580/400/1450 Core/Mem/Shader. Hoo.

    UPDATE:

    Okay, so I've tried other drivers..turns out even though I changed drivers I still can't overclock the card..got a highest 3DMark of 1891 though with the 185.20 DOX..

    Could it be that Acer won't specifically make you overclock your cards? If so, would there be any way to overcome this? Flashing the bios or vbios perhaps?

    I've never been able to overclock my acer 6935g. Not that i tried much but all the programs don't seem to have any affect and nTune can't even install without crashing.
