Problems getting set up after new graphics card
« on: December 19, 2013, 02:03:27 PM »
Hi all,

I previously had a 6870 installed on my set up. However, have just upgraded to R9 290X. I'm having difficulties getting mining set up with this though. On first installation I was getting memory issues so had to remove one of my sticks of ram. Leaving me with 2GB. Now, When ever I try to start a miner, the computer ends up abruptly restarting itself. Can anyone have any idea what may be causing it? No signs of any errors etc.

When I did get the miner (cgminer) running, it said no active GPU's.

I have installed the latest catalyst and the AMD APK.

What OS are you use? Xubuntu right(casue you can run it with 2G RAM)? But usually we need at least 4G RAM.

Have you done card initialization? Like:
sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f
sudo reboot

Miner restart itself, for me usually it because I push it too hard. Try to start cgminer with no other parameter like this see if it can run stably.
cgminer -I 13

If you can run smoothly, try to increase load a bit by a bit.


Third Graphics Card NOT WORKING 7970 + 7970 + 280x.
