If your asking how to overclok, use Riva Tuner or ATI Tools.
Or install Ntune. But lots of people found problems with Ntune.

Personally I use ATI Tools because I only really overclock to play Oblivion. Don't need to for any other game. You can change clock speeds on the fly.

a "NV Classic CP.reg" file extention. Use the quotes when you save or Notepad will add a
.txt extension onto the file which you do not want.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global]

"ContextUIPolicy"=dword:00000001
"TaskbarUIPolicy"=dword:00000001
"CplGroupUIPolicy"=dword:00000001

After saving right click the NV Classic CP.reg file you created to merge it into the registry and
bingo you have the good old Classic (and useable) CP back."

Thx.

I got it working after a clean reinstall of the NV drivers, but I don't see any of the new AA modes. Not to mention I kind of like the newer ones better. Most of the 3D settings can be changed in a single screen, rather than scrolling 5 times in the older 3 line view from classic panel. I'd love to see all options w/ a classic style footprint. Hell, why not give us options to adjust brightness and the like @ bottom of screen all transparent...kinda like a TV.

WHy is Nvidia continuing to make drivers w/ the new panel most of us don't like???
I guess I could ask why they're not very interested with XP drivers anymore...??
