    mobile ATI cards seem to have an issue with RivaTuner.

    but in your case, I believe that the x1200 is an intergrated graphics card... which are not supported by RivaTuner.

    Whenever I install RivaTuner and start it up for the first time, I get a message that RivaTuner hasn't been tested with your current video drivers. Is that why I'm not getting all the settings you're supposed to get with the customization tab? Also, I would have to downgrade to a driver on the nVidia or manufacture site to get it to work, right?
