I gots a problem, 1 of my GPU's is failing WU's. It downloads a WU, starts it, then before it has done .01% it failes, after so many files it stops.
I have rebooted, reinstalled driver/client no go, any ideas?
Mu 5 other GPU's are running fine.

Which GPU driver? This has been my main frustration lately in [email protected] I understand from some readings that the ***.49 driver has hiccups, the ***.48 worked for me as does the 373.06.

I use 368.81 on all of my GPU's, the 1 that failed is using 368.81. I think I have it going now, I removed the slot the made a new slot, and I went in and deleted the FAH_core_21 folders just to clear out any corrupted core programs.

If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the driver, or jumping up to 378.49. That worked for me.

Yea but what I want to know is why a driver that has been working fine for months, up and stops working?

Given the timing, I think it was either a windows update, or the recent mini-core update from Stanford to fix the slowdown with the hotfix. But that is just a guess.
