    If you go into Global Settings, along the top you will have your card/s listed, with (Global Overdrive), click on those, then Accept.

    Got me that too :p

    Try reinstalling drivers. If they are installed properly, then you should have the option.

    AMD really goofed up the OverDrive options for mobility users.

    There has to be a dword that can force the settings to come on.

    If AB can manage your GPU don't use OverFry.

    Set a temp and clocks profile in AB and apply it.

    Yes. You need to enable the feature in your vBIOS by editing the firmware. I did this for my 5870M, and I released it for public consumption on ASUS ROG site when we updated the vBIOS to fix a memory stability issue.

    You can use RBE to edit the vBIOS, there's an option to enable Overdrive. Just save your existing BIOS to a file, load it up, make edits, save, and flash back.

    I use a USB stick that boots to DOS for my flashing jobs.
