    I have a MSI FX5600 VTD256 with the nvidia 53.03 drivers installed my card documentation says that it has thermal monitoring. i an using nvharpage to enable this option in the nvidia drivers. however when i try to enable it in nvhardpage this option is grayed out. why? does this mean my card doesnt supportthis option? thank you...

    Because many FX5600 's are without thermal sensor, I disabled this options for all FX5600 's.

    You can try enable this page in windows registry editor (regedit.exe) - find key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - "SOFTWARE\NVIDIA Corporation\Global\NVTweak" and create or change DWORD value "NvCplThermalSettings" to 34. Please reply if it works.

    Mr.Guru :D

    Mr.Guru i tried this i modify this key as a hexadecimal value and i enter the value 34. but nothing happened my msi brought a program to read the temperature but it was with macromedia flash or shockwave player and once the version was updated it no longer works. but if the new drivers bring this temperature settings page then it would be great to have it enable. unfortunally when i install the new drivers i dont have this option enable and i need it to check the temperatures on my video card.

    Sorry, I mean value 34, but in a decimal format, not a hexadecimal. In hexadecimal is it 22.

    I go my FX5600 U to show the temp in driver...also I include the setting file for you guys....
    to Mr Guru how can I enable that temperature option in nVHardPage software.... I think you should enable it for FX5600 and up card.... Change that line alone wont work because there is also a FAN CONTROL and FORCE FAN (I saw the button once in the COOLBITS page in nividia driver) I am using 52.16xQ driver and I can see allitle more options than regular driver does.... And when I open that registry I see a lot more than just that one line.... Any idea why everytiem I enable the send CORE TEMP to TRAY optiont hen my winXP wont boot to windows no more, it post just fine but it turn off when it get to the WINXP page not even the log-in screen yet

    my FX5600U using Starstorm 52.16xQ driver in 2D mode before I fixed it ..with FAN CONTROL
