Just a heads up.

If you have a Radeon HD 6950, 6970 or 6990, and you have been suffering from hang-ups when running Bitcoin and watching videos at the same time, this problem has been now fixed with Catalyst 11.7. Mining speeds are not affected negatively with the new driver on my 6950, so it is safe to update if you are concerned about the speeds.

You don't necessarily have to update drivers to get rid of this (though, updating drivers is obviously the better option). If you turn off hardware acceleration, lock-ups will end.

Help Bitcoins by buying clothes, technology, books, etc. through people/stores that accept BTC. This will increase overall value of BTC as well as mitigate unnecessary bank transaction fees.

Just polling the videocard can trigger UVD and cause the crash, so turning off hardware acceleration is a no-go. (opening GPU-Z, PCSX2, or just the video settings panel in CCC all trigger the problem)

I agree.

Happens on my 5830, flash or VLC with drivers tested 10.11 SDK2.1 & 11.4 SDK2.4.

To watch a movie or flash, I don't watch flash since mining but I've gotta drop my core clocks significantly and add -s 0.004 to the flag box of guiminer to watch movies without 10sec freeze driver crash.

I don't know about the 5830, but my old 5850 experienced the hangup issue up until 10.3 which fixed it. Between that and 10.11, I had no hangups (that's when I switched to a 6950).

I have a solution that doesn't require a new catalyst driver. It's called, stop watching movies while mining. Why is this even an issue for anyone? Either your rig is for mining or not. How many people actually do something with their rigs other than mine anyway - really, a rig is not a rig if you do non-mining things with it, then it's just a workstation.

It's an issue because many of use do indeed use our computers, and just leave it mining in the background with the spare power. You don't need a dedicated mining rig to mine.

These 11.7 drivers cause my computer to crash much more often, while merely browsing the internet, not even using embedded video.

I went back to 11.6 and got improved stability relative to the 11.7. That was just my personal experience (win7 with dual 6970s).

I tried 11.7 ati drivers, and they did not work properly.

X works fine, and the ati (amd) utilities also work fine and can see all the video cards, 3 video cards or 7 cores.
However the miners only see 1 core, I am using the latest AMD sdk 2.4, so maybe 11.7 is not fully compatible with SDK 2.4.
So if you only have a single core 11.7 is probably ok, otherwise you still have to use 11.6.

Went  back to 11.6 and the problem goes away, however 11.6 does have the mouse bug.

Does anyone know how to get around this problem with 11.7 ?

Hmm, is a Peterbilt semi not a RIG because it is not hauling a trailer or a loaded trailer? Go trollz somewhere else.
