Re: AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher
Ok cheers will do that tomorrow

Actually screw it I got you the report already. 2 MORE things:

1) Forgot to mention that Windows loads for a few seconds before the BSOD, and it's enough time for me to tell that it's NOT loading in native resolution (not in 16:9 anymore)

2) This time, when I loaded in Safe Mode I got a Windows error report:

Problem signature:
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.768.3
Locale ID: 3081

Additional information about the problem:
BCCode: 1000007e
BCP1: FFFFFFFFC000001D
BCP2: FFFFFA80090AA82E
BCP3: FFFFF8800646C998
BCP4: FFFFF8800646C1F0
OS Version: 6_1_7601
Service Pack: 1_0
Product: 768_1


Anyway, now the actual BlueScreenView report:

Bug Check String: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
Bug Check Code: 0x1000007e
Parameter 1: ffffffff`c000001d
Parameter 2: fffffa80`090aa82e
Parameter 3: fffff880`0646c998
Parameter 4: fffff880`0646c1f0

Cheers!

EDIT: Just noticed that the above reports are practically identical

RE: AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher
What does it say under the "Caused By Driver" and "Caused By Address" columns?

Re: AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher
Um, I'll have to double check when I get home, but I'm pretty sure these columns were empty (I only copy pasted columns that had entries filled in). Odd...

RE: AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher
Ok I'm back home and have double checked. Those fields are definitely both empty...odd

I'm gonna try the last WHQL drivers (CAP12.10) just in case it's related to something in the latest (revision 11) of the CAP12.11 Beta drivers.

By the way, Toasty, when you say the patcher "has been tested to work with Catalyst 11.9 through 12.11 Beta," what revision of 12.11 Beta did you try? All of them? Also, what about the Catalyst Application Profiles? I have these installed too...

Cheers for everything. Will let you know how I go

RE: AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher
I'm using revision 11 right now. It should work with all revisions. The CAP shouldn't matter.

I'm beginning to suspect file corruption. Use WinMD5 and let me know what MD5 checksum values you get for the zip and exe files.

Too late. I rolled back to 12.10 WHQL and it's now working fine (even with the CAP profiles on top). Could of indeed been a corruption problem with me 12.11 installation but at the moment I'm focusing on reaching a 120Hz OC

Just tried going from 96 to 120Hz on automatic timings in one go and was (surprise surprise) greeted with a black screen at startup, lol. Trying 110Hz with manual timings.

Another question (yeah, they're stacking up, right?!): When we get the black screen, is the only way to start over to boot in safe mode and unpatch the drivers, reboot, repatch and reboot? That's what I had to do. It didn't suffice to just choose 60Hz in CRU while in safe mode...Windows would still reboot to a black screen. Just wondering if there are any shortcuts in the event of a black screen.

Cheers, Toasty!

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we've just hit 120Hz, folks! SmileSmileSmile

To be honest, I would like to try with the 12.11 beta drivers again but at the moment I'm just glorifying in the fact that I'm finally experiencing 2560x1440@120Hz!

THANKS ToastyX. Hope you spent my measly donation from earlier this year wisely! You deserve it and much more!

RE: AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher
You shouldn't have to unpatch the driver. Just deleting the higher refresh rate in safe mode should be enough, but who knows.

Ugh, yeah come to think of it that would have been the logical move. Oh well that's all academic now.

Last thing (totally not important): any way remove the Test Mode watermark? I tried a method I found via Google but it literally disabled Test Mode instead of just removing the watermark
