Default AMD Overdrive Will Not Start. - 09-14-2011, 11:04 | posts: 23,958 | Location: NZ

Hey all, I can't open AOD after installation, all that happens is a dialogue pops up and says AOD failed to start...no kidding lol

Btw I'm referring to AOD CPU overlocker - not the one in CCC.

Anyway Event Viewer has this to say:
Quote:
The AODDriver4.0 service failed to start. The system cannot find the path specified.
Does anyone have a fix for this? I have a feeling it's related to Catalyst but not certain...

Thanks!

Aye? I'm not - what gave you that idea?

I do use AB for the GPU, but AOD is for overclocking the CPU and isn't related to Catalyst Overdrive...

IIRC the new catalyst drivers come with it integrated, also CCC is needed for power control.

If that doesn't help maybe try posting this in the AMD processors section.

Guys, I'm not talking about Catalyst ATI Overdrive...

Here - a picture will explain it better.


This is AMD OVERDRIVE...

Maybe it not look the same on different systems but i don't know..

Mine looks like this on both Crosshair III and Crosshair 5, and im using 11.9 RC too and it works fine.

Maybe you have some old installation of AOD messing up?

edit: ok, i realize now it was not your SS but an example

^yeah just an exampl, but still what version of AOD is that you have?

is that enabled through Catalyst?

I do have the AMD Overdrive button in my CCC, but it only opens up ATI Overdrive (for the GPU).

What drivers are you using?
