Interesting problem I discovered this morning...

I upgraded all of my mining rigs from 11.9 - 11.11 this morning

they all took to it fine, except for one rig that has 1 x 5970 and 4 x 5870

the driver crashes as soon as you start mining, even with default clocks and fresh reboot

reverted back to 11.9 - no problems - getting 2500 mhash out of the thing - smooth as can be

anyone else have a similar issue?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

Yep same thing here with a 5850, downgrading didn't work though at first I had to uninstall the microsoft driver too from device manager.

Names do not matter; however, if you insist...id...

one thing I noticed with the new driver that's really strange is it crashes when you go on and off - on a screen

like for instance if you have it on a tv that has multiple inputs and you switch between them, it often crashes the driver

it actually helped kill a PSU that I have to RMA today 11.11 sucks for miners.
