Unresponsive screen

Postby momus_98 » Thu Jan 23, 2014 9:45 pm

I'm having an issue that only seems to manifest itself when I'm running F@H: when my display goes into low power mode after a period of inactivity, it will not come back on when I try to resume it. I do not use a screensaver and I have the power management set to keep the machine running at all times ("Put the computer to sleep: never").

If F@H is not running:

And the display is set to go to sleep after x minutes, I have no issues.
And the display is set to never go to sleep (meaning I have to physically turn the monitor off), I have no issues.

If F@H is running:

And the display is set to never go to sleep (meaning I have to physically turn the monitor off), I have no issues.

However, if the display is set to go to sleep after x minutes, when I walk away long enough for the display to power down it will not come back on when I return. The computer is still running as best as I can tell, but nothing will get the display to respond: moving or clicking the mouse, hitting keys on the keyboard, Ctrl+Alt+Del, etc. I am forced to press the reset button and start over.

I have the latest patches & versions of everything: Windows, browser, Flash, video drivers, etc. I am clear of any malware or viruses. I have left the machine running idle for days with the display set to sleep after x minutes and do not have any issues. None of my hardware is overclocked and I do not game.

I have attached my logs and my system config is as follows:

AMD FX-4100
Radeon HD 7950 (with graphics version 13.12 installed)
Windows 8.1 Pro
8 GB RAM

Did you face this issue with 13.9 Driver version? Was this issue present from the first time you started GPU folding or not? If not, could you please tell us what changed?

BTW, from your configuration, it seems that you aren't using a passkey. I would recommend that you get it if you want to get bonus points and for additional security reasons (http://folding.stanford.edu/home/faq/faq-passkey/).

This problem has been occurring relatively recently, now that you mention it; probably in the last few months or so. The weird thing is I just got a blue screen (BSOD) about 10 minutes ago, which has never happened. I'm going to throttle the processing slider down from full to the recommended setting of medium and monitor it over the next few days.

It could possibly be a FahCore_17 issue since it was released to the public few months ago (in November http://folding.stanford.edu/home/change ... -full-fah/) and before that, you were getting FahCore_16 WUs which didn't generate this error. Is your GPU operating within normal temperature range while folding?

Last night, I took the machine down and gave it a good dusting out. I also gave the board and other components a quick visual inspection and made sure the cable connections were tight.

I've been running F@H now for over a day at the "medium" setting and when I check the video card with Speccy, it's reporting about 56°C at load. It of course goes down when there's video activity, as the GPU slot goes into idle while I'm using the machine.

As suggested, I also added a passkey to the client. I will continue to monitor the client and may throttle it back to full after a few days to see if the problem happens again.

56°C at load is a pretty good temperature.

So far, a test was done with a Windows 7 system with an AMD GPU and there wasn't any issue to resume the monitor. I have tested this on my Nvidia system and no issues. It seems that it could be a (rare?) Windows 8.1 and/or AMD Driver issue.

You could try a previous WHQL release from AMD if there isn't any need to use the latest WHQL one.

Well, I had high hopes because the medium setting seemed to alleviate the problem, but I encountered the same screen freeze as before. I will chalk this up as an isolated incident for now and just physically power the monitor off as my workaround. This problem could have numerous causes (hardware, software, drivers, etc.) and since you couldn't replicate it, I will let it be for now. Thanks for helping.

My computer has the same problem only I have an Intel based motherboard and NVidia GPUs also it exhibits the same behavior often waking it from sleep mode it just doesn't wake up, and this isn't the case all the time. Many times it seems to fold and wake up as long as I don't leave it over 6 hours alone estimating. There is no sign of display driver failure is one strange point about it. In fact one time I just left it hours to see if it would recover. Over 4 hours unresponsive, I observed the mouse and keyboard lights turn off when a key on them is pressed and there is slightly high HDD activity. The computer became responsive but it looked like it rebooted and there was no power loss event or display driver failure.
I am definitely having a difficult time diagnosing what's wrong, there are many application failures in the event viewer during the time the computer was unresponsive, only different applications are failing each time, they seem unrelated and random. I don't see a definite pattern, no one error on the event viewer is worth sharing because there's many and they seem unrelated and random.
Something transparent that I don't understand is going on, how common is this?

I have disabled all power savings (in Windows and BIOS) and my windows power profile is high performance. If I need to shutdown/restart, I exit all programs including F@H (the exception is when it is a service installation and I don't stop it, it is handled automatically by the OS). I use the power button on the monitor to turn on/off it. With this usage, I haven't encountered any issues with the OS/Drivers for many years. It might be a slight inconvenience now but once you are used to it, it will be easy and you can avoid a issues when/if OS/Drivers changes in the future.

It's definitely a pain I obviously have no idea if it is the same problem that the OP proposed. Considering in my case the computer exhibits that behavior coming out of sleep mode also.

If you fold with your GPU, there's a good explanation. When the computer enters power-savings mode, data which is being processed by the GPU is discarded when power is removed from the GPU and cannot be recovered. To avoid this from happening, FAH's client disables sleep mode. This has been the subject of several enhancement suggestions so it may change in the future, but at the present time if you want to resume work on an assignment for the GPU you MUST manually stop the FAHClient program (or at least the GPU slot). Either will enable FAH to be restarted later from the last checkpoint.

If you fold ONLY with your CPU, the data for that assignment is properly restored by your operating system after entering sleep/hibernate mode.

I had a similar experience with my HP Envy dv6 (A8-APU AMD Radeon 7640G), laptop. It is set for closing the lid to "do nothing". One day not long ago I opened my laptop and the screen was unresponsive in a similar fashion; clicks and key presses were fruitless and I ended up having to force restart. This has only happened once.

FAH produces heat. Heat dissipation is a major issue for laptops. Laptops may have a fan, but even if they do, a lot of heat goes out through the keyboard. There's a reasonable chance that by running with the lid closed, the computer overheated.

I do fold on my laptop. Technically, the GPU is supported but (A) under the best of conditions, my GPU cannot complete project 8900 within the deadline and (B) the GPU generates a lot more heat and (C) if the battery runs down, any active GPU assignment gets corrupted. I have concluded that GPU folding on my laptop is the WRONG thing to do. I do, however, run a CPU slot using all of the CPU-cores. It meets the deadline and I have it configured to fold on battery because even if the battery does run down, Windows puts it to sleep, preserving all of the progress that has been made on CPU based WUs. I make it a point to get to a source of power quickly to resume and recharge. (I do keep the lid open when folding, though.)
