Hi

I've tried looking for an answer to this for quite awhile and haven't been able to.
Any version of gpu tweak I try whenever I start the program it always says " fail to load dlls. Please install vga driver" I have the latest drivers for my graphics card so that shouldn't be the problem, so I would much appreciate any help.

Thank you

Try to run the program in compatibilty mode in Windows 7. And also run in Administrator mode.

Unfortunately neither of those two things works it just comes up with the same error.

Well unistall that and get a better one can work. Too many complained for this GPU Tweak.

1. After Burner
2. Precision X
3. TRIXXX

AB my choice.

I'll give precision x ago but the others don't allow me to change voltage.

Precision x doesn't allow me to change voltage either

By the way what card are you using?

Yeah sorry probably should have said. Sapphire 7850 2gb and I know that these aren't meant to be able to overvolt but through gpu tweak it allows it that's why I want to get this to work.

Why not try to Sapphire TRIXXX or AB? One dont work try another, 7850 pushing to 1.2v should not be an issue.

I've tried both and neither will let me push up the volts even if I tick the boxes that are meant to take away the volt limit.

Look like your 7850 voltage lock.

I don't think that's it because I've read of people who haven't been able to do it on anything other than gpu tweak and i'm just trying to get it to work but haven't seen that error before.

Which model of Sapphire 7850 you own?

PS: Do you have any other 3rd party monitoring or tweak software install load with windows?

Mate, how much oc you want to acheive for this card need to change the voltage. If you are running 1000/1375 at stock should not be a problem without any any voltage increament. Pleas let us know whay your OC range. Thank you.

Well I've got mine to 1050 core and 5600 memory if I go any higher it's not stable I would like to get 1290 on the core and 5800 on the memory.

I maybe abit greedy with what i want but thats not really the point, all i've asked is if anyone knows how to get around that error message.

Mate. cool. Why not you uninstall the GPU Tweak. next uninstall the ATI driver completely. Prior to that get the latest GPU Tweak and your 7850 driver.

Once you done all the uninstall. Go to your windows device manage to check if the Display adapter still appear ATIXXXX. If there is, righ click the card and select properties and clcik on driver. Uninstall the driver and please check the Remove all driver from this computer. Reboot the system.

Now you can start to install the driver.,follow by the lastest GPU Tweak.

Keep us update and Cheers.
