GPU Drivers crash every time I complete a WU; clocks reset to idle - Page 2

Interesting. My current WU is a GPU2 and it grabs me 5.3k (it usually nabs around this much for me). Though, mind you, this is with aero and all enabled (I just cannot work without it, everything gets too laggy!). My GTS-250 is OC'ed nicely though!

EDIT: It seems to be happening again, but luckily my idle clocks don't permanently go down to idle clocks after it happens. This is a GPU overclock that has been thorougly tested and has worked well with Folding before. Has it gone unstable somehow!?
Either that or my WU's are really short


Reverted to 197.45, hoping it works well.

GPU3 was purely for the Nvidia 400 series which is why it will cause issues with other cards, or so I've been told. I'm using 257.15 on my 470 and have had no issues so far.

EFF. It's still doing it on 197.45. GPU clocks/settings have not changed since the Chimp Challenge, so I don't think there should be any instability whatsoever. It happened right after a WU was sent again; in fact it always seems to happen when a WU is sent, and clocks get stuck at idle so I have to restart the system to fix everything. This is on GPU2 clients.
Maybe this is related to doing normal tasks while doing (GPU) folding... hmm

SET NVCP to amx performance instead of adaptive and see if it helps also look again the configs of the client

I will try both and see if it helps... hmm
EDIT: The only thing I've missed in my configs is my new passkey, which I don't think is needed for the GPU client anyway, but I'll put it in and see if it works properly.
EDIT 2: If my GPU drivers have crashed when I was at school today... well, clocks didn't reset to idle

Excuse the double post... but I'm a bit worried it's my GPU and not drivers having problems now. 'm worried something on my GPU may have failed.
My GPU during the Chimp Challenge folded heavily, sometimes for 48 straight hours at a time. Right now it has been about 20 hours of straight GPU folding; then, while I was doing homework, the screen flashed, and artifacts appeared everywhere. It wasn't the monitor; I turned it off and on. I stopped folding on my GPU and then eventually CPU but artifacts were still there. I restarted my computer and this seems to have fixed the problem. I'm running on lower clocks (as I always do when I'm not 'using' my GPU) and not folding on my GPU at the moment in fear that I've wrecked something. Should I run Furmark or ATITool to test? If this video card need be replaced, I do have the money to get a new (more powerful?) GPU.

Bump it down to stock clocks and give it a try. If it is still failing after that then it could be your card biting the dust

Mind you, this happened for the first time after 15 straight hours of GPU folding. This also happened while I was normally using the computer in addition to folding. I'm going to give it another try with OC'ed clocks and if it does this again, I'll drop to stock and see if it happens.
