Weird error, can't get rx480 to fold

Hey y'all,

I got a second hand rx 480 a few days ago, and it was folding great. I swapped it into a different machine, and now it instantly downloads a wu, claims bad wu, sends it back, this happens 5 or 6 times then it comes back failed. It doesnt even get to the point where the card is being put under a load. I swapped card back into machine it was working fine in, as well as a 3rd machine. Same story. The error is Exeption Access violation.

Any thoughts? I'm getting frustrated. Thanks!

If this is in Windows, I've never had that happen before. I did have a similar issue with a 480 in Linux, but that was when the new Linux drivers were pretty immature.

Have the Bios been flashed on the card? If so, I would reset them to factory and then clean and reinstall drivers. Since it is happening in more than one machine, it could be a hardware issue. How does the card handle other loads like Unigine, 3D Mark, etc?

Check the BIOS, DDU , and reinstall gaming drivers (not blockchain or mining ones).

Make sure you have OpenCL for AMD GPUs on your computer as well.

Please post the log. Including the beginning where it shows your computer info. Compare it with the other PC that worked.
