R9 390 - Bad State detected - low speed, crashes

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.

R9 390 - Bad State detected - low speed, crashes

Postby ATGC/U » Thu Apr 21, 2016 7:00 am

Hi! I've tried to make my AMD Radeon R9 390 GPU fold on Lubuntu 64 bit but I get error messages like this all the time whilst running at ~1700 PPD at full settings:

Sometimes the FAHcontrol doesn't display any errors, but the folding speed still remains low. On Windows 7 I've achieved up to 80000 PPD on my GPU with no errors with the drivers that came with the GPU installed. Also:
- I've tried all the available drivers for linux: fglrx, fglrx-updates & xserver-xorg-video-ati
- I've changed gpu to true from configure>expert
- all the depencies supposedly are satisfied
- I've even re-installed my OS and tried also Linux Mint with the same problems repeating

I've got a beast of a machine and I wanna run it 24/7. Thanks in advance.

Did you try to use drivers for Linux from http://support.amd.com/fr-fr/download instead of those provided in the repositories ?

Mod Edit: For those who don't read French, he probably means

Post the first page of the log showing what FAHClient detects in your system and whatever settings you have in FAH's config.

Until you mentioned it I hadn't, but now that I did I got my GPU to finally fold at ~60000 PPD. Thank you very much! Probably I would have never thought of that and just given up. I couldn't however make the files from AMD's website work on Lubuntu (there were some errors during the installation) so I installed Ubuntu (on which the installation went well).

Unfortunately the logs are gone since soon after toTOW's reply I replaced the previous OS I had.
