I use my computer for much more than just Bitcoin mining, but I was just kind of lucky to have picked up a 5850 with wonderful cooling, that can go up to 865 mhz stable, a year ago. So, to make use of it, I have taken up mining in the background.
It works splendidly, barely if at all impeding on my daily use and gaming with the "-f 100" parameter. But when I want to do something that uses the OpenGL libraries, it BSOD's my computer with an error message singling out the OpenGL driver.
I'm wondering one of two things:
1) Is there a workaround that I can do to prevent this BSOD, other than pausing my mining task.
2) Will Phoenix cause this same crash? And if not, what are the recommended flags that I may use to get the most out of my card, and keep it at the lowest priority?
