Downloaded VLC and went through every setting on "simple" and "advanced"-mode unticking anything that would remotely use gfx hardware/memory...

And it works now to watch videos!

It's really lame that you have to do this, but *shrug* I do hope it's only a temporary solution. After all what good (other than mining) is a fancy pants video card with super duper whizbang video acceleration and other such newfangled technology if you CAN'T use it.

Doesn't work with latest 11.4, so pray they fix it in next one :)

Just disable any video hardware acceleration and you are fine, also don't use directx 11( not sure about directx10, directx9 works fine). Those will make system crash when combined with openCL.

Yep I think that's the safe route to take. I plan to just stop mining altogether when gaming. I really don't like crashes and rebooting for me is  such a big pain in the ass because I got like 20+ different applications running at once.

Does 11.4 improve speeds a bit over 11.3? I have doubts, but thought I'd ask.

Bump. 11.5 is out, so is a 11.5a hotfix (for mouse lag problems).

Can someone please test if it still locks up with the new drivers?

11.5 and 11.5a cause problems in all appz. so i rolled back to 11.4.
yes, they improve OpenGL driver considerably, improve CPU saturation for Direct3D appz and boost 2-5 FPS in some games, but at cost of IQ inconsistency and more agressive LoD comression[even with turned off "Catalyst AI" "features"].
if you need new OpenGl, just use signed dll from 11.5 WHQL with 11.4 WHQL driver.

I'm having this problem too (it wasn't happening with the 4870 I just switched out) and I'm wondering if this is unique to poclbm and certain miners or if it plagues all miners. What is the last known 'stable' driver set in regards to this issue?

I am also experiencing this issue on my 6950's. AMD updated the forum post with "Our engineers are currently working on the problem." So hopefully this will be resolved with future drivers.

I got a lot of crashes using the 11-3 driver.  So many that I had to stop mining as soon as I started using my PC.  Last week I upgraded to 11-5 and haven't had a crash since.  It probably isn't fixed completely but 11-5 certainly made it better for me.

I'm having the exact same problem, It freezes even when a flash video comes up ... its very annoying! I just got two new cards and I'm using 11.5 and it freezes. I really hope they fix it soon.

P.S. I can't make a new topic/reply to the AMD forums ... so I hope people keep reporting the issue. =/

Same problem here - 6950 and 11.5 Catalyst.

I sent a support ticket request to AMD in regards to this, I suggest you all do the same.
