Pathetic.

Open (or create) the perftune.ini file in Notepad, and add the following switch:

[Options]
MGA=1

I've been using the older version of Powerstrip GX for a week and my BIOS seems to be fine! What kind of prob's are there with it, aside from overclocking??

Earlier versions of PS and GX caused some pretty major problems a while back. They would eat bioses for lunch. Many got away unscathed, many (myself included) ended up with a trashed bios. This was reproduced by Matrox tech support.

As a result, most people have been staying away from PS/GX for overclocking, although I have heard the latest PS has addressed the earlier problems...
