    Screwed up my video card

    I set the AGP to 1 vs. 2 (where it was). Now I can't get back through PowerStrip (the Utility I used) to put it back to 2. The display locks up completely (the mouse even freezes). How can I correct this???
    There are only 3 rules to successful overclocking. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

    Get a program to find out what speed your AGP is at without PS running. (Sandra is good)

    If it's at 1.0, oh dear. If it's at 2.0, just uninstall and reinstall PS.

    It shouldn't be at 1.0 w/out PS, but if it is I don't know.

    Hope I helped,
    Chris

    Thanks Chris,
    Found file called "pstrip.ini" that had the powerstrip value of AGP transfers. Reset it to 1 and all is OK.
