Hi everyone,
I'm looking for this small utility there was with Tiger where you can set the rapidity of your graphic cards. I have 3 cards with same power on each (I configured it with Tiger), now that I have problems with real time preview under DVDSP on my screens, I think it could be something like coming from my cards but I can't find this soft anywhere to change thoses ettings… is it working differently on Leopard?

Macpro 2.66 + MacBookPro 2,16+ G4 dual oldschool, Mac OS X (10.5)

    Hi Samuel,

    I admit I haven't looked at it in Leopard, but the Configuration Expansion Slot Utility should be located on your Mac Pro at: /System/Library/CoreServices/.

    Regards

    HI!
    thanks for your quick answer! It's there also on Leopard! I was looking in the wrong Library. What strange is that spotlight is not finding anything, I typed all different kind of word "expansion" "slot" "utility", nothing, prefernces in spotlight are all checked… strange (Address book is kind of blind too…) doesn't matter my problem is solved, thanks!

    best from Marseilles!

    Something is wrong with ESU, though. I changed cards and it degraded one card seriously so I fully expected it to launch. Did not!

    Booted Tiger, launches automatically just fine. Which was actually odd, as I had set the changes (in Leopard) and it acted like it had the same old configuration.

    Do both systems store information differently? I'd think it went into NVRAM.
    So I thought I'd test this further.

    I made changes in Leopard, but when I booted into Tiger it asks again.
    I manually had to launch the utility in Leopard both times.

    Hi!
    I didn't had this experience but I do had problem witj ESU not recording the settings I made. That was because I made a copy of the utility in my application folder that wasn't a good idea: it's not working elsewere when you copy it and you can't make an alias from it.
