Lame sauce that I cant even post this in the guiminer thread and I am stuck on the noob forum  Angry

But as the title says, guiminer crashes my machine every time I stop the program.  I have tested this on multiple nvidia cards with the same result.  I have even updated my drivers a few times and no fix.  I was wondering if anyone had a similar problem or knew a fix

Thanks

Have you tried restarting your computer? Also, are you positive that you are using the OpenCL poclbm miner + the CUDA (important that you use CUDA not the usual nVidia drivers) driver?

Restarting? yes.  Lol, I give it a restart every time I stop mining.  I just realized I wasnt very specific about the crashes.  When it crashes, I mean the whole machine is unresponsive.  Not even the cursor will move.  Everything is completely locked up until after a hard reset.  And I am pretty sure about using OpenCL.  I can try to double check though.  I am using the defaults if that makes a difference.  And I do have CUDA installed.  I mean, everything works; my hashrate is normal for the video card I am using UNTIL I try to stop it.

Happens to me aswell, Win7 x64 using poclbm with a gt 330.

No idea then. nVidias aren't considered to be too good with mining anyhow. I'd say try to wait for an update to guiminer/poclbm, or just go all-out and use the phoenix-miner binary.

I do realise that. But why not do it? I don't pay for electricity. it's another ~30mh/s

My computer doesn't crash, but Windows is resetting the graphics driver. This takes some seconds, and then everything is back to normal.
This happens with other OpenCL-Miners as well.
Try the CUDA-miner.
