Using 3 cards with Win7, there are times that the cards stop mining and everything on the desktop disappear except the background. Tried disabling the OC of the cards but the problem remained.

Went back to 2.3.6 and been running 3 days now without hiccups, except for a slight increase in stales.

so It is then false alarm then?
Didn't see anything about Win32/Coinminer but this I found in readme:

"Q: Is this a virus?
A: Cgminer is being packaged with other trojan scripts and some antivirus
software is falsely accusing cgminer.exe as being the actual virus, rather
than whatever it is being packaged with. If you installed cgminer yourself,
then you do not have a virus on your computer. Complain to your antivirus
software company."

Try reducing the hash rate of the main card (the card connected to the display, usually the one closest to the CPU).

Yes as long as you downloaded it from the link in the first post of this thread, you are safe. You should be able to make an exception for it in your AV software.

Is there a notification list we can subscribe to that will send e-mail notifications when new releases of cgminer are made available?

Already tried that. With 2.4.1, the problem persist even if I run the primary card at default core clock. With 2.3.6, all 3 6870s at 960 core work for days without problems.

Another this I've noticed:
When you change the priority of a pool to the top (via the API) and you save the config file, the order of the pools in the config file remains unchanged from is original. Maybe this should change to match the current priority order?

I've implemented this and put in a pull request for it.
A quick look at the code suggests that if the primary pool goes down and the next back up comes on, the priority doesn't change. Just the index is incremented.

I have a strange issue with cgminer... After a day or two of work hash rate starts to slowly drop from usual 440 Mhash/s and reaches 340 Mhash/s within 30-40 minutes where it stops. Restarting cgminer brings hashrate back to usual values. Any ideas why this happens?
Does the utility drop too?
Sam
The script restarts cgminer right away, so it don't have chance to drop, but p2pool also sees the drop in hash rate, so I guess - yes.
At a guess ... 12.4 is your problem ... since I heard it would often just pack up and die for no reason with cgminer.
Had same issue with 12.3. Sad

I had similar issue with DiabloMiner, but in that case hash rate was dropping below 150. I also think it's a driver issue. I'll try older versions to see if that helps.

I'm not impressed with 12.4.  After I installed it, on top of 12.2, all my 7970 cards got "locked" to 500/150  (not the usual 300/150).  AB, cgminer, Trixx, GPUTweak could not reset clocks to defaults.  I even switched to second BIOS.  No luck. cgminer could only mine at 500/150. I also noticed cgminer handles jumped to over 20,000 from the usual 9000.  Maybe it was trying to reset clocks and was failing but something was not closing handles.

I uninstalled all the AMD crap, all the third party tools. Rebooted, uninstalled video drivers.  Rebooted to VGA mode.
Installed 12.1, no SDK, just the cat.  AB 2.2.1 did reset the clocks and lowered the voltage.

Now I'm happily mining at 925/34085/0.88V. Yes that is right, 340 85 MHz for the memory.

Could somebody help me with an issue I'm having using any miner (cgminer included)?

My cards are only using 50% of their power constantly, as shown on the screenies below:





Any idea why this is happening?
My system:

- 2x 5970
- Ubuntu 11.04
- AMD SDK 2.4

Are you purposely running your intensity that low?

Are all of your GPU's running displays?

Do you use your system while mining or is this dedicated?

I would suggest only using one display and setting the intensity for that GPU to dynamic if being used or 7 if it is dedicated.  Then the GPU's that aren't driving displays set the intensities to 8 or 9 and then tinker around a bit for best performance.

But that's me,
Sam

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
A: Top-posting.

No, I'm not doing this purposely, that's why I'm asking Smiley. I don't run anything on this rig, it's a pure miner. Only one display is connected.

How do I set intensity of mining though?

Ok, I was being stupid. I figured it out, setting intensity to 14 solved the problem Smiley.

Setting it to 14 will cause a different problem; I recommend turning it down to about 9.

I would recommend reviewing the executive summary in the first post of this thread.  It has some good suggested starting points along with the most common command line switch's.

Another case of one of my BFL's dropping off when throttling.
CGminer sees it as still alive, but the temp and 5s hash rate remains static and the overall hash and util drops.
Disabling/re-enabling does nothing.

Poopy. Wish I had the time to decipher the BFL code.

This morning I had another case of cgminer freezing on me.  The screen displayed that pool wasn't responding fast enough and was switching to pool 1 (local).  The time stamps on the screen was 6 hours prior to the current time.  The screen had stopped updating, as well, as the GPU temperature was wrong, as closing cgminer and re-opening it proved.

I mine at Kano's Pool because it pays the best and is completely transparent!  Come join me!
