32bit-Vista Home Premium SP2, 32bit-Windows 7 Ultimate RC, also got Mac OS X 10.5.7 (in VMware)
 
 

I had no success with either of the tools. i dont know how to use rivatuner so i cant get to clock settings, and in amd gpu clock tool i click on set new clocks and it flashes and goes back to the previous clock speeds

well in that case i have no idea what to do. Have u tried any games to see how performance differs from previous drivers? If it lower than i suggest rolling back the drivers mate, either through system restore or the rollback feature in device manager..

The drivers that were installed by win7 when it was installed were similar as it also showed the card as HD 3400 series. in vista i have the OEM drivers installed that came on the pc and they are definitely much quicker running games than these HD3400 series drivers. In vista with the original HD3470 drivers i can run gta san andreas on max res and max detail with max draw distance and it runs 25+ fps in win7 its much much lower it is very laggy running the same settings

well the important thing is whether the new drivers u just installed perform the same as the original win7 drivers..

but either way this is a strange problem mate and honestly i dont know what to do.

Ok just to make sure when u go into catalyst control center and go into powerplay, make sure that each tab says maximum performance rather than maximize battery life. I think it is by defualt under maximize battery (well at least for me)

what i just installed compared to the original win7 drivers is a little better but not much better. Is there any way i could find (in my vista partition) and use my vista drivers i have? only problem is i would have to go through my whole vista install directory and find all the .inf files for the card

yeah just go into ur vista partition drive, then ATI, then SUPPORT, followed by the drivers name eg. 9-4_vista32_win7_32_dd_ccc_wdm_enu. Copy this folder into the same location in windows 7 and try modify it. However i must say i personally havent had any luck modifying the drivers in windows 7, worked flawless in vista however.

ps. are u sure its not on maximize battery life?

Just got it working correctly. And yes its set on maximum performance not battery life. I downloaded a program called powerstrip to overclock it because atitool and rivatuner did not work. powerstrip says that the clock settings have change when i change it in there but i open up gpu-z and it still says the stock speeds so i duno if it worked or not. by the way my card still shows as HD3400 series but its running correctly now according to gpu-z. i havent tried it in game yet though...

Thanks for all your help. Also after reading your clock speeds they are quite slow, mine runs at 550mhz stock core clock and 400mhz memory clock. Now according to powerstrip it should be set at 573mhz core and 436mhz memory
