I've tried the scrypt guiminer and EasyLTC, and both crash either as soon as I attempt to mine, or as soon as I start the application.

On 13.3 (beta), guiminer crashed when I attempted to mine.
On 12.8, guiminer crashed before it even started.
On 12.8, EasyLTC crashes when I attempt to mine.

Any ideas here?  What's the best combination of drivers and miner for me to use?  Nothing is working, and I have no idea why...

5850, Windows 7 64 bit, I just tried the following for cgminer on 12.8 drivers and it crashed too ("cgminer.exe has stopped working..."):

Code:
cgminer --scrypt -o http://coinotron.com -u SgtSpike.1 -p qwerty --thread-concurrency 5600 -I 18 -g 1 -w 256

Not sure what you mean by miner type.

guiminer-scrypt lets you make reaper miners as well as cgminer miners

Does it even crash with -I 10?

Unrelated issue, what does it mean if poclbm can't subscribe:

ltc.kattare.com:9332 03/04/2013 04:51:25, checking for stratum...               
ltc.kattare.com:9332 03/04/2013 04:51:30, no response to getwork, using as stratum
ltc.kattare.com:9332 03/04/2013 04:51:40, Failed to subscribe                   
ltc.kattare.com:9332 03/04/2013 04:51:42, IO errors - 1, tolerance 2

poclbm is the python opencl bitcoin miner, it doesn't mine litecoins

are you using guiminer-scrypt? see sig

Code:

Yes, crashing with -I 10.  Though for full disclosure, I am currently on 13.3 beta drivers when I tried making that change.

EDIT:  Interestingly, I don't appear to be able to mine Bitcoins with BitMinter on 12.6, 12.8, or 13.1.  Only on 13.3.  I uninstall, restart, and reinstall the drivers, but maybe there is some things from 13.3 that are not fully uninstalling and causing the crash?  What's a good removal tool to be sure everything from a driver uninstall is properly removed?

Something might be wrong with the card.  Try mining bitcoin, as well as checking for RAM errors with OCCT's GPU test.

Bitcoin mining works with 13.3, not with any prior drivers that I've tried though.  I think I was on 11.xx when I recently reformatted and reinstalled Windows 7 though.

I would try downclocking your card too to something like 500 mhz core and 800 mhz memory and seeing if it runs too, like I said it may be a hardware issue.  Barring this and passing the OCCT mem test I would reinstall windows.

Alright, thanks for the help.  I'll keep experimenting as I have time.  Not sure that another reinstall of Windows is worth it at this point, but we'll see.
