Never change a running system.  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I felt tempted to upgrade AMD Catalyst from 11.5 to 11.6 (link at AMD). Afterwards GUI miner did not work so I removed and reinstalled the new version.

This is one windows 7 / 64 bit.

Since then my system is unstable.  Roll Eyes

This means: I get a frozen system in 10 - 20 % of the restarts and the system stops mining and freezes after some 8 - 15 hours of mining.

No error logs or events pointing out the reason.

I am not overclocking or otherwise provoking things and before that on 11.5 and the May (?) version of GUI miner everything was rock solid and stable.

Any similar experiences ? Any ideas ?

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

Have you tried using a complete uninstalling program, like Revo, to remove Catalyst?

Thank you very much for the hint !  Smiley

I checked the temperatur and it looks to me that for some reason the temperature with the new Catalyst is higher (maybe they use the GPU more efficiently). I had had some freezes earlier when the temperature went over 90 celsius - so I reduced the frequency to stay around 83 at most and checked during the night. Rock stable until now. So currently I suspect it was a different reason...
