I'd revert to 11.10 or 11.9 drivers if you have the 11.11 ones ...

I keep getting the same two bad work units 5732 and 5738. I even cleared the whole work folder out including my smp work folder thats been working.

When something like that happens, please report the PRCG of the applicable WUs. The Moderators can report bad WUs so they don't get assigned to other people. That's why we have the forum Problems with a specific WU

Hi, I'm new to the whole FAHClient v7 beta process. I downloaded 7.38 last week. I'm also getting failed WU now as well.

I have just a plain ATI 4870, not a 4870x2, that I just upgraded to the 11.11 drivers to take advantage of Adobe Flash hardware acceleration. I then started getting failed WUs on my gpu. I tried editing, then deleting and recreating the gpu socket. Here is the section of log file I believe is most interesting.

The questions I have are as follows:
1) Do I have to edit some configuration in the gpu slot?
2) Is this a bad WU that I just have to wait for the Stanford to give me a good WU when the servers are reset?
3) Is this a driver issue and does that mean I have to now find a copy 11.10 or 11.9 to get my gpu unit working again?

This is my first time to run the w7 beta so I was afraid to post there. Good news is the 11.10 drivers made it work. Success!

Good news! I also got my gpu slot to start working by uninstalling the 11.11 drivers and installing the 11.10 drivers. In fact, right after I uninstalled the 11.11 drivers and rebooted my computer, the gpu slot kicked in OK with only the Windows generic video card drivers.

I believe this is a driver issue, but I'm not sure what to do next. I do hope that the 11.12 or 12.01 drivers fix this as I would like to take advantage of Adobe Flash hardware acceleration at some point down the line.

So... I was just thinking about this, but who do we report this to? Do we file this contact AMD being as it is a driver issue with the graphics card or Folding@Home as it is a program issue with the beta client?

AMD is aware of the situation already, see this post from mhouston.

Okay, folks on Vista/Win7 try the new drivers. I haven't been able to test on a 4800 series board, but my 6850 is running correctly both CAL and OpenCL cores. XP still appears to be broken from other reports I have.

Hi mhouston,
i have a 4800 series board, windows 7, the same problem as with the 11.11 drivers persists with the 11.12 package :( So i'm going back to 11.10 again
