    Update: For folks that have installed RivaTuner and DO NOT see the Hardware Monitoring icon, it is very possible that that particular video card might not be fully supported... especially when its a mobile videocard because the manufacturer might have stripped certain sensors and monitoring options. Its unfortunate if you have a videocard that isnt fully supported, but RivaTuner has many more functions than what I have shown here, especially fan control speeds for those that don't own Clevo notebooks (which has a Fn+F2 command to max the fans speeds).

    For good news, here are some snapshots that I have taken while playing Battlefield 2142 Demo. You can see that RivaTuner temp monitor on top left of screen.





    Game On People,

    P.S. I am still working with RivaTuner to figure out more useful things to make guides for.

    Ok took some suggestions, and modified the guide to include Startup options for easy monitoring with ease.

    Please give me feedback if it still needs work.

    Thanks,

    Just to report this doesn't fly for ATI mobility x1800 cards. Simply not recognized in Rivatuner.

    Let me get my hands on a notebook with an X1800 in it and i'll find out. I'm going to ask some friends to borrow theirs.

    Its usually drivers that are too new that sometimes cause RivaTuner to not pick up the hardware.

    Yep, i have the same problem with my X1800. I have tried Rivatuner, but it just doesn't want to pick the temperature out. Its the same as Chaz, with the little icon not being displayed. I have also tried Everest and some others and they didn't piuck anything up either.

    I'm discovering that RivaTuner has more compatiblity with nVidia cards than ATI... especially when we are talking about mobile GPUs.

    Yes, your probably right Gophn. Its probably because now adays Nvidia has more cards on the market than Ati. But has anybody tried Rivatuner with any other cards, except the X700 and the X1800?
