AMD Seymour (as 2nd gpu) hangs and not folding

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though AMD has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

AMD Seymour (as 2nd gpu) hangs and not folding

Postby Eddy » Tue Feb 04, 2014 12:10 pm

Hello all,
I started folding some days ago. I loved the idea of helping science and medicine while testing my hardware and warming my office and my room :P .
Anyway, while I'm folding great with my CPU, I can't get my 2nd GPU working.
I've an APU configuration with AMD A10-4600M with AMD Trinity [Radeon HD 7660G] (GPU 0) and AMD Seymour [AMD Radeon HD 6470M] (GPU1).
I configured 2 slot separately for the 2 GPUs as I wanted to set idle=true for GPU 0, because my computer's interface became too slow when folding with this.
Instead I can use GPU1 without seeing any slowdown (or at least I should be able to..).
When folding starts on GPU1 slots, it goes for 4 minutes using the CPU (I assume compiling open-CL kernel), then sometimes I get the message that my video driver has restarted, then GPU load (with GPU-z) goes at 100% for few more minutes, then get back at 0% and folding won't go ahead. The log is stuck at "Checking core state against reference...", while on GPU 0 at least it goes further, but I can't tell how much.
Software: Windows 8.1 (6.3.9600), AMD driver 13.12.
P.S. when it get stuck, I can't pause the WU from FAHControl, I have to kill the FahCore_17.exe process.
