I've been experiencing random blue screens due to ATI driver crashes only when computing with Milkyway@home from what I can tell thus far. Still testing Collatz and Primegrid. The card processes many good work units thus this is not a common issue, but at unknown periods it will just crash. The errors very but for the most part it is a time out on recovery attempts.

I was combing through my error work units when I stumbled upon Task 174285468 which is the only one thus far that seems to have been able to run the debugger before my system BSOD:http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/result.php?resultid=173626250

I'm wondering if there is a bug in the code that may be causing my card driver to crash and the system to BSOD. Let me know if I can provide any more data or test runs to verify this.

The title really should read: Errors: Unhanded Exception Task 173626250

Which card and which version of the CCC software?

[4] AMD ATI Radeon HD 5800 series (Cypress) (1024MB) driver: 1.4.1703

My host: http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/show_host_detail.php?hostid=194804

Specifically an ATI 5970 running CCC 12.3

I understand there were some OpenCL bugs in previous drivers back to I think 11.9, but it seems a bit poor planning not to save the task with errors to debug and investigate further... unless that is done, but not publicly visible.

Next time I'll remember to capture the output.

If the driver crashes and you're getting BSOD's, that makes is a driver (except there are a bunch of potential problems that can cause a driver reset from an application, but the fact that it causes a driver reset is an AMD defect but that's not really related) or possibly hardware problem.
