OK, so about 10 minutes after I pause the miner. my main 4k 27 inch monitor freaks out and looses picture. I have to unplug the HDMI and replug it to get pic back. Does the same thing if I use a displayport connection. I have had this trouble for a week plus now. I can have my computer run normally or play video games and it does not do anything. It only does it after I pause the miner. my cpu is a I5 2550K and my video card is a GTX 1070 reference card from Nvidia. If anyone has any ideas please feel free to help me.

    This is quite strange. The pause function on the miner works by quitting the miner entirely, and having the script launch it again after waiting for the user to press a button, so all the resources are freed when it's paused.

    It's also a strange symptom- the miner doesn't really interact with the monitor. Maybe something in the graphics card is resetting when the monitor is disconnected and reconnected?

    I don't have much insight here, but you could try overriding the miner to use a different mining mode by creating a file named "hardware-detect-override.txt" which contains just:

    Code:
    -G


    And seeing if that shakes things up enough to make it work.

    Okay, so I deleted all the files in the folder. downloaded the software again and reinstalled. Five hours after I closed the miner I have not had one screen blink.

    Hopefully this is the last problem I have with it.

    Probably a dumb question, but I mined some gems and they are worth no points. Is something up, or does it have more to do with me wanting april fool gems and holding spins till today?

    Spins from the previous month can still produce gems but the gems produced do not contribute points to the monthly contest. Only gems from spins produced during the current month contribute points.

    Also, this should probably be in its own thread... as it has no relationship with Thaddius1000's problem.

    I read this as a general post for troubles, I am so sorry.

    I was not intending any disrespect or distraction. Please accept my apologies Thaddius1000, I hope your issue remains fixed.

    I don't think anyone really felt disrespected. I was just thinking in terms of people finding similar problems to their own easier so the same questions don't get asked repeatedly. No worries. :-)
