I was wondering if this is a video card issue or a limitation of Bitcoin mining or what. But when I have my miner running - weather my video card is overclocked or not, the second I open YouTube to watch a quick video or something or really do anything video related weather it be YouTube or not, my computer locks up and I have to restart it.
Now, I would like to point out last week I bought 2 Radeon 5830 cards and ran them both on one machine and everything worked fine. Since then I purchased 1 new Radeon 6970 and took 1 of the 5830s out to put in my wife's computer and run mine with a 6970 and 1 5830. Since then I'm having the lock up issue but it was fine with just the 5830s. It would obviously immediately lesson my performance in mining, but I could still watch something if I needed to or wanted to rather.
So should I return this video card as there is a problem with it? Or deal with it and just find another computer to use to play around on?
Oh yeah, and last but not least I did want to point out that during the night I believe my computer locked up while I was sleeping because when I woke up to check on it my screens were black and unresponsive but my tower was still running. So these lock ups could even be in-part unrelated to watching any videos or playing games or anything but I've not confirmed it yet.
Any help is as always, greatly appreciated!
