I've been mining for quite some time, but lately one of my GPUs (an ATI 5850 OC) started locking up after an average of 12 hours. I'm wondering what I could do to avoid these lockups and what the causes are.

The problem started when I switched to the phoenix miner (from Diablo), I think it might be due to a higher usage of the cores (since Diablo in my case was slowed down by CPU, no idea why), so while I now get the advertised hashing speed this single core locks up, making the whole thing not very productive after all.

Any idea?

due to using low end pc parts for mining i had exactly same problems, i don't want to invest in proper mobo and better psu, decided to use what i have until it die so i wrote small script that will restart miner every 2 hours and whole system every 12 hours, so far my down time is under 15 minutes per day
