Also, where did you find the Unian Catalyst drivers, and how much of a difference did they make over the stock setup? I've read that the vid card in my laptop (Travelmate 8104) has its memory underclocked, probably for heat/energy issues, and was wondering if the catalyst drivers would fix that automatically or if i'd have to "overclock" back up to ATI's stock memory speed frequency.
Edit: RE: Ver 3c11 BIOS - The very kind and informative DarthAcer sent me them. His system came with 3c11 stock, and when he tried the 3c17 upgrade, WinPhlash backed up his 3c11 bios and he sent me that file which worked fine for me. I haven't really had any issues with 3c11, but 3c19 was causing random crashes in WoW which have since stopped, as well as my fan not running so erratically.
