Windows 7: GPU observer not saving settings after swapping video cards around.

GPU observer not saving settings after swapping video cards around.

ok i just swapped my OC 6850 into slot 1 and put my old 6850 into slot 2 and also updated to CCC 11.11 with CAP 1 and now gpu observer is only displaying the temp and it will not save the settings i want. i have tried redownloading and installing the gadget but still getting the same problem. does anyone have any suggestions on what i could do?

edit: computer detects both cards and the reason for the swap is because i had my OC card in slot 2 and i have been too lazy to get around to moving it into slot 1.

could it possibly be AMD's new drivers?

Hi people I know that saving those settings is impossible and that it's meant to be that way ( to keep the noobs from messing the things up ) and up until WMP 12 that didn't bothered me much . In XP I was using KMPlayer/VLC for the films and ITunes for the music . Now that WMP 12 fits so well in...
