    Default GSvr.exe crash

    I installed Gigabyte Dymanic Energy Saver and Easy Tune on my two new systems, an EP54-DS3R and a EG45-DS2H.

    I am running Vista Ultimate x64 SP1 on both systems.

    On both systems I frequently get a crash reported by Windows in GSvr.exe.
    This seems to be associated with the GEST Service installed by Energy Saver.

    gsvr.exe has no version information, and gest.exe still has the default version infromation added by the Visual Studio MFC dialog wizard.
    This already tells me alot about the type of developer that would not pay attention to detail...

    Anyway, I downloaded the installers from the motherboard utilities section, are there any newer versions elsewhere?

    I believe this is a fairly common experience and certainly has been my experience with DES. Eventually, I just uninstalled it.

    Yeap, waste of programming I think. It will only save you $2-3 per year anyway.

    Overclocking boards should not have ever been even made with this or any similar software, defeats the purpose of a strong overclocking board and confuses newer system builders

    Ok thanks, I'll just uninstall it.

    How about Easy Tune, any use for that, or are there other tools that show similar info and allow similar control that are better?

    Well for control, you want to make ANY changes in the system BIOS, not with a software.

    As for information, yes Everest Ultimate shows Much more info. Here is a trial, with some limits such as partial info blocked out >>>
    Lavalys - Comprehensive IT Security and Management

    Here is a free application called PCWizard, which is VERY Similar to everest but is fully functioning as it is not a trial. >>>
    CPUID ~ PCWizard

    That same company also makes HWmonitor which is a utility to watch temps/voltages/fan speeds only. But you only need this or PCWizard as it includes this info as well. >>>>
    CPUID ~ HWMonitor

    And here is CPU-z which is very similar to page one of EasyTune, which has your CPU FSB Freq, and CPU info
    CPUID ~ CPU-z

    GPU-z for your Graphic cards >>>
    GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility

    Thanks.

    Are there any utilities that display the BIOS settings in Windows?

    Well, some of them. Memory ones can be shown with Memset (They can also be changed but be careful, and do not use Save feature to apply at boot time) >>>
    Tweakers.fr

    If you meant any other settings let me know and I will think a bit, but off the top of my head that would be it

    Now, some of the above apps will show you settings you have set in different areas of the programs, but no none will show you a "BIOS Settings" type of thing

    I purchased a copy of Everest, very nice app, no more need for either of the Gigabyte apps.

    I still think EasyTune 6 is nice for monitoring things. It gives the correct DRAM voltage, for instance, I can see what I commanded MCH to, etc. I do use and like Everest, but it doesn't seem to entirely replace EasyTune for monitoring purposes. It would be nice to see all the things that these various tools show us in one, tidy application!
