I have installed Vista Home premium on my PC (865GBF, 1GBDDR(400MHz), 80GB SATA, DVD Writer and ASUS MX440 AGP).
Can you suggest any good overclocking utility to OC my MX440 in Vista.
RivaTuner does not work and tried coolbits, not helpful.
Would be happy if you can suggest anything.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Overclock MX440 64MB in Vista
To be honest, the MX440 is rather outdated, especially with only 64mb sdr, to make gaming experience better graphically, the minimum card you will need would be 256mb ddr and no doubt windows vista would look better also.

Did you try to move the small jumper next to the connector on the back of the DVD writer. Then try to choose different places to connect your DVD on the motherboard. Check if you have the right driver or reinstall it.
Hi whistler1410, you need to enter your bios menu. Press the delete key every couple of seconds to load the bios menu.
Once in the bios (See instructions located at the bottom of the menu, to help you move about).
You should see all connected drives at the main menu.
This includes the SATA writer & hard disk drives.
Go to the bios menu, BOOT.
SATA drive even DVD drives are seen by the bios as a master drive. So within the BOOT menu go to "Boot device priority".
The boot priority should read as follows.
First boot device [Floppy disk drive] (If one is connected)
Second boot device [Your SATA DVD writer]
Third boot device [Your primary hard disk drive] (The drive with windows loaded on it).
If you do not have a floppy disk drive than make the first boot device your DVD writer.
Save the bios & exit the bios. You should not receive "boot disk error message anymore".
Run into a problem, post here.
Good luck whistler1410!
i) when you start your system press button(F8 or F10 or DEL) so that you can go into BIOS menu now try explore BIOS menu and see whether
a) SATA 0 - ST325082045 3.ADG b) SATA 1 HL-DT-STDVD +-RW GSA H31
are just visbile(in sense, you can see them in BIOS writen ), this will make sure system is able to detect them, we will be assured that your a)HARD DISK b) DVD writer are working perfectly ......
if so without any hesitation format or reload system with Windows Vista....
ii) if otherwise any one of them or both are not visible in your BIOS Menu like a)HARD DISK b)DVD writer
try to open your computer tower and locate cables that are going to ur DVD writer, HARD DISK and reseat them(just remove the cable and place them again), by this way we are making sure that no loose connections are existing..............you can even try new cables .......
now restart ur system and go in to BIOS menu and repeat the step (i) ....
if you are enable to see any one or both
a) SATA 0 - ST325082045 3.ADG ....................HARD DISK b) SATA 1 HL-DT-STDVD +-RW GSA H31................DVD WRITER
then you are having problem with either HARD DISK OR DVD WRITER and you have to buy them .....
