    It only works if you have the 780G chipset.

    You should be able to use RMClock since yours is an older AMD...else give this a shot and let me know

    Exactly... I tried using overdrive when AMD first released it and when it scanned my notebook it said that the 780G chipset was not detected. Overdrive only works if you have an AMD 700 series chipset (Puma etc).

    Anyway RMclock works for me so no complaints here.

    Yes, this guide is only for people with newer AMD systems not supported by RMClock

    This "guide" hasn't helped much. The first time I tried Overdrive, programs would not start correctly on my next boot. I uninstalled it. Tonight when I tried it again, I changed the voltage (kind of; when on High Performance mode, the voltage kept moving back to 0.800, although that's down from what it was). Upon my next boot, I typed my password to log in and my system locked up. I rebooted, and logged in, and started Overdrive. When I went to "load profile" my system completely locked up again.

    So what the ****?

    Unfortunately, the software doesnt officially support the M780G yet, so there is bound to be some issues when run on such systems.


    P.S - If anyone is unable to boot into Vista at all then just boot into safe mode and disable the AMD overdrive service from starting up automatically. You should be able to find this menu from Start-> in the search box type 'service' and it should be the first Program on the search result. Disable this service and reboot the computer to boot normally.

    Cause in my case, Overdrive didnt recognize the system as an AMD one and moreover fusion allows you to overclock your graphics core speed (I believe some on these forums clocked his HP dv5z HD3450 to 700 instead of 500) and you can create a windows like power profile with fusion to load on every startup
