Ah so it looks like I have the correct configuration now! lets see what happens when the PC goes off later!

Luckily I am not seeing any issue like that. I just have the problem of once windows disables the display the GPU clocks down. Since this is in a notebook I'm not leaving the display on 24/7. Once I get all of the GPU tasks out my lappy wont be running it anymore, but good to see it works. Hopefully they will update the release notes with the next installer release.


If somebody could fill me in into what exactly needs to be updated?
I'm not omniscient and I don't run ATI so I don't have first hand knowledge of the traps. If nobody tells me what needs updating and with what, updates don't happen.

I would have guessed that Raistmer would provide the updated info/changes for the read me.
The section of the read me that reads:
The ATI MB application will not work on ATI cards with workgroup size 128
(e.g. HD43xx). To check workgroupsize run CLinfo, downloadable (at present)
from {http://boinc.berkeley.edu/dl/clinfo.zip}
If you have problems running the HD5 flavour (anything from reduced performance
to BSOD), you should run the plain variant.

Would need to be changed. It seems the statement does not apply to HD53xx & HD63xx hardware. Perhaps "The ATI MB application will not work on ATI HD4xxx cards with work group size 128, but will on HD5xxx cards with work group size 128."

Once I started up the PC this morning all worked ok, so the issue I had was originally with the first install whereby once updated automatically it caused a problem with any re-install of the drivers and OpenCL, where it disabled it on any future restart! I cured this by deleting the current driver then running the app Msicuu2 which basically removes any corrupt installations totally from the system. Once this has been done reinstall the required driver and there you go all up and running without any issues!

I hope that helps anyone else having a similar issue! Unfortunately I cannot remember where I downloaded the file from but you can get it here http://www.filecluster.com/downloads/Windows-Installer-CleanUp-Utility.html If I come up against anymore issues like this with this card I will post it here!
