Hi.

I have a problem getting my stickminer to work. The same thing happens all the time. The miner blinks two times with a white light (The green light is always on). Then I get the attached
message. Any ide what I can try to do?

I dont know how to add a picture here. But it says: "Failed to open Device Parameters registry key in lowl-vcom.c _vcom_devinfo_scan_windows_hubport():556:System can not find the file

I haven't seen that particular error, but if you read and follow along the first post's run instructions, there's a decent chance you won't end up at this specific error.

Did you run the instructions per the first post for your particular setup? My understanding is that covers pretty much everything minus sticks going zombie and possible HW failures. Looks like you might have skipped a step...

I'm running 2 2Pacs at a frequency of 200. One of the miners always goes into Zombie mode. I've turned on the voltage on the one that goes into zombie mode and that seemed to have worked. Both miners were running fine for a few days, but just recently that same miner just went into zombie mode again. I think I've turned the voltage up the max on that particular miner, I'm not really sure what I can do to fix this problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just as a side note, I'm using a good powered hub that supplied 2.1 AMPs to each port, in case this information is helpful...

Do you get any HW errors on the zombie going stick? At 200 MHz the voltage pot is at a good position when it´s set to 3 or 4 o`clock.
Did you measure the voltage on the stick?
Did you try this stick alone, without another stick on the hub? I also thought I had a hub with enough power. My power supply is 30 W and I run two sticks on 250 MHz on it. So it should bring 6 A (3 A per stick). But when I turn up my voltage a little higher, there is not enough power.
Maybe turning down the voltage is the answer.

I got the kernel panic again. Here is the output that was dumped to the terminal if anyone is curious.

Is there a solution for that issue? I get it from time to time, too.

I'm just going to give up and ask ya, sorry Sidehack, I know your busy. What is a good upper threshold temp you like to see on the front board and heat-sink of these gekkos. I'm trying to both avoid damage, and at the same time like all of us I'm guessing trying to provide peak performance with optimal cooling.

I'd say probably no hotter than 60C would be good.

Hello, my name is Himmbler, I bought two USB recently, today an error appeared and now they do not work. CGminer says failed usb_init (1:40) failed to initialise.  I have tested them individually in diferent OS and HUBS  and they do not work at all. Any recommendation?
Thank you very much.

What frequency are you working with?
How is your voltage setting?
Is one stick working if you connect it alone?

My 2Pac has been running well for several months. However, lately it has started to mis-behave.
It will run for 1-2 minutes, and then disappear. It requires me to unplug the USB port and re-plug it back into a different port in order for it to get recognized again.
Plugging into the same port does not cause the 2Pac to be seen, it must be into a different port.

If one port is unusable, how do you make it usable again? I assume it´s a hub? Do you power it off? Or restart the system?

Im running on a RPI3, so it has 4 USB ports.
All I do is stop cgminer with a ^C, unplug and replug into a different port and restart cgminer.
No reboot or power cycle needed.

Well there's your problem. You're trying to pull a full amp through the port and the Pi doesn't like it. That's why basically everyone uses a powered hub.

It's odd that it has worked for a month, but is getting flakey now.
I down-speed to 100 and it's working much better.
Thanks
