Ati GPU folding causes youtube videos to hang.

Postby ArmoredGuns » Tue Dec 20, 2011 5:02 am

When I fold with my Radeon 5870, sometimes youtube videos become green (and you can only hear the audio). Not even exiting the client fixes this problem, you have to manually restart your PC. Is there any fix to this? I'm using Windows 7 x64 and the client 7.1.38 beta.

I strongly suspect this is an ATI driver issue. Which version of drivers are you running?

11.2? Was that a typo or are you using drivers 10 months old?

Are they? Then I'll update my drivers to see if it fixes the issue. Thanks.

I think this is an old issue with the drivers that has been resolved since then ... an update will probably help.
