    Start- run- type "cmd" w/o quotes


    In the command prompt type "ipconfig /flushdns" w/o quotes.

    Reboot- or maybe you don't even have to reboot.



    Also type in there "ipconfig /all" w/o quotes for more info...


    ipconfig /? for more commands.



    Code:
    USAGE:
        ipconfig [/? | /all | /renew [adapter] | /release [adapter] |
                  /flushdns | /displaydns | /registerdns |
                  /showclassid adapter |
                  /setclassid adapter [classid] ]
    
    where
        adapter         Connection name
                       (wildcard characters * and ? allowed, see examples)
    
        Options:
           /?           Display this help message
           /all         Display full configuration information.
           /release     Release the IP address for the specified adapter.
           /renew       Renew the IP address for the specified adapter.
           /flushdns    Purges the DNS Resolver cache.
           /registerdns Refreshes all DHCP leases and re-registers DNS names
           /displaydns  Display the contents of the DNS Resolver Cache.
           /showclassid Displays all the dhcp class IDs allowed for adapter.
           /setclassid  Modifies the dhcp class id.
    
    The default is to display only the IP address, subnet mask and
    default gateway for each adapter bound to TCP/IP.
    
    For Release and Renew, if no adapter name is specified, then the IP address
    leases for all adapters bound to TCP/IP will be released or renewed.
    
    For Setclassid, if no ClassId is specified, then the ClassId is removed.
    
    Examples:
        > ipconfig                   ... Show information.
        > ipconfig /all              ... Show detailed information
        > ipconfig /renew            ... renew all adapters
        > ipconfig /renew EL*        ... renew any connection that has its
                                         name starting with EL
        > ipconfig /release *Con*    ... release all matching connections,
                                         eg. "Local Area Connection 1" or
                                             "Local Area Connection 2"

    Greetings all:
    I've looked high and low to find a solution to my Omega driver issue and have been unable to find any info on my issue.
    Any version of ATI Omega I install causes my system to reboot and run chkdsk (if I try to bypass it it just reboots the system); the results of the chkdsk is no problems were found and then the machine boots normally. This does not occur when I have any other ATI driver (ms winxp, ATI [any version etc.]). As to whether there is any performance gain from ATI Omega drivers is moot as I don't feel that my pc should should always be restarting.
    My specs are as follows: home built p4 ht 3.2gHz, asus p4c800-e deluxe (latest mobo Intel 875p chipset drivers), brand new WD SATA 125mb 7200rpm, ATI 9800xt Pro, 1gb of Kingston ram.
    All of my drivers are up to date. Each time I have installed/reinstalled any drivers I have always followed uninstall instructions from the start menu to a T.
    Any ideas on what I might be missing? Maybe a bios setting? I've had this problem for 2 weeks now and finally decided to post this message.
    Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I just got a Sapphire x850XT and a fresh windows XP install. I installed the Omega 5.2s, but Radlinker doesn't seem to work. I get 0 for clock speeds and have no way of adjusting the AA and AF now. I tried reinstalling with the same result.

    Any ideas? Thanks

    EDIT: Nevermind..Found out it's a PCI-E issue I guess. Sad. :wtf:

    The regular ones are the ones you should be installing, the soft mod drivers are to make lesser cards think that they are better, ie: 9800 thinks it is an XT, 9700 thinks it is a 9800, etc

    Have you tried uninstalling all of the old ATI drivers and running driverheaven driver cleaner before installing the Omega's? that generally works for me whenever I install the omega's, although sometimes I will reinstall my OS and install the omega drivers then. ;)

    No, he is skipping the 5.3's and releasing the 5.4's. I do not know when, but it should not be much longer.

    maybe he is waiting for the 5.5's ? it has been a while since the 5.4's have been available, and usualy he releases some soon after the official cats are released.

    Totally agree with ya!

    Don't see any use in still releasin' the 5.4's now, since the 5.5's are comin at the horizon in two weeks now!

    ChrisW hasn't updated his RadLinker (wich causes problems with the latest Radeons) yet!
    And Omega can put all his optimisations he's planning for the 5.4's into the 5.5's!

    Have you thought (being me one of the best users of omega drivers) that simply omega can´t make those optimizations made in other catalyst in the latest one? I don´t want to harm the omega community but, since Ati released its latest Opengl driver that totally supports 2.0 version, Omega hasn´t had made a release, so it makes me think in something:
    Omega, try to improve Direct3d a lot ( like in NFS: Underground) and forget Opengl now, as I think that it´s your actual problem.

    P.S: I have just arrived to my home drunk, so I probably have said something stupid, if I have said something bad, forgive it.

    If I could say something, I¨d said: "Omega forever"

    Well, RadLinker 2.032 is out so that shouldn't be the issue at the moment for Omega!
