I have a 6950 2G reference card and for some reason when I am mining and try to watch a movie etc, my system freezes and I have to restart. Does anyone know what maybe causing this? On my 6850 1G I can mine and watch video without any issues.


Thanks

Lower the aggression and ask these questions on the mining board

Lowering aggression won't help.


The 6xxx series have a known problem where they freeze when anything else tries to use the GPU.

"-f60" and above can help.
in general, try keep you GPU saturation under ~92%.
p.s.
about 69x0 specific. similary behaviour 58x0's. its more depend on driver verions, than HW. some was hang, somw was not[usually, drivers w/o kernel-space thing. "atimdagxxx.sys" or something like].

I've never had flash or anything GPU accelerated work, regardless of -f setting (which I believe should be -f 60, the space is important).

And though I've had the problems with my 6990, I never saw anything similar with my 5870 nor 5970

If you are using flash to watch video, right click on it and disable hardware acc. If you are using video players with GPU acc. then I suggest using VLC as long as your CPU can handle your playback needs. GL
