This morning when I turned on my computer I tried to start GUI Miner as usual, and it came up in the system tray and in the task bar when I clicked it with Windows 7 but I couldn't get the app to pop up on my screen. I restarted the computer and same problem. I updated to the latest version of GUI Miner and it still won't work. Any suggestions? Last night after I stopped my miners for the night to shut down the computer the computer BSOD as I tried to quit GUI Miner.

I just downloaded Diablo miner but that app won't even open.

you said gui miner is running but you can't see it? maybe the position is bugged. find the poclbm.ini or poclbm.cfg (its poclbm.something, idk what it is) and change the postition to 0's. had to do it one, it was like 999999999 for some reason once. changing to 0's fixed it

Yes it runs but it stays minimized so I can't do anything with it at all. I'll do what you suggested when I get home.

if you have multiple video cards in your setup jump into display properties and tell it to use a single display... it might just be popping open on a card that you don't have connected to a monitor?

I had the same problem. Go to %appdata%/poclbm and delete poclbm.ini. Problem should be fixed now

Corrupt Open CL/APP SKD....I had the same problem and tried multiple miners before I found the problem.
Uninstall the SDK, re-install and everything should be OK.

To confirm this before doing anything, just open GPU-Z and it should open with an error telling you that there is an Open CL problem.

Hope that helps,
Allan

There is a fix for this it is related to poclbm.ini not being saved properly.

Read the first post in the official Guiminer thread.

or search forums for "guiminer invisible"

here is the fix

Open up a guiminer and click elsewhere to lose focus
In the taskbar, left-click once on the Guiminer icon so it gains focus
Now, press "ALT-Space" (you will see a menu appear were guiminer should be)
Press "M" to choose the Move option (your cursor will now turn into four arrow points).
Press any of the cursor keys once (this will move your guimineron the screen and it will be captured by the mouse)
Move your mouse about and you will see the guiminer moving with it
Left-Click to "drop" guiminer onto your desktop
