Hi, I'm new to this...when I try to run the gui for pool mining...
my GPU quickly goes from 40 degrees C to 65, my screen goes to standby, and then the computer restarts itself, I assume to protect my hardware from damage. Just wondering how I can fix this and start generating bitcoins with my GPU.
Am willing to pay someone some bitcoins to help me ???this working.
I've tried setting fan speed to 100% but that doesn't stop it.
See link below for a pic my GPU specifications and stuff.http://oi55.tinypic.com/ermo8x.jpg
I would first guess a power supply issue. Can you tell us how many Amps the power supply has on the 12v rails?
If you know the PSU model, you can look it up, or there should be a sticker on the PSU itself. It should say something like 12v1 @20A 12v2 @20A etc. Some powersupplies have multiple 12v rails, others have one with a lot of amps on it.
If its a power supply issue, one thing you could try as a test is do underclock the graphics card. Run it at like 50% its rated memory and core clock, then see if it reboots. This will significantly decrease the wattage.
Also, when it restarts... is it flashing a blue screen at all? Keep us posted!
