Windows 7: Amd overdrive fail?

Amd overdrive fail?

Has anyone managed to successfully use AMD overdrive to overclock their system and then load the same settings every time your system boot!?!?

I've tried several times to check the box which is supposed to allow this to happen but it seems to do nothing, every time my system boots the old overclock settings are lost

If no one can help me with that then does anyone else have a Phenom II X3 720 and an asus m3a? i cant find anyway to change the CPU settings in the bios, hence why i'm trying to use overdrive....

No idea about OverDrive, don't use it.

You try reading the manual for your motherboard? All the info you need is in it starting in section 4.4 )page 4-17 in the PDF) in the bios section.
