Can someone pls explain me, why my lenovo ideapad 500-15acz 80k4 cannot use AMD OverDrive utility. Have tried everything from reinstalling my display driver to my system OS. But I cant get the bloody program to work. Could it be my outdated CPU driver version 10.0.16299.15 from 21-04-2009 or my that AOD doesn't support my hardware?
