Hello,
I have re-installed the AMD 13.1 driver and now I get these messages:

When I check the url give it says:
2013-03-19 00:28:38.9680 [PID=28648] [version] ATI device (or driver) doesn't support OpenCL

Has anyone an idea where to look for a solution?
Thank you.

AMD driver 13.1

If that is the newest driver try going back 1. If it's an older driver try update. Have not checked lately on AMD GPU drivers so this is what came to mind without checking.

Thank you.

Are you still using Windows XP by chance, if so you CANNOT upgrade past version 12.1 as OpenCL support was dropped for XP systems after that. Your pc's are hidden so I can't check myself. Here is a link to what I am talking about, the download links are at the bottom of the page:

I am using Win7 x64 with

I am using Win7 x64 with BOINC 7.0.28 on that machine. Eventually after hours and hours of installing and de-installing I have now 13.3 Beta drivers on it and all works fine, Einstein@home, my screens are flicker free and the system is stable.
One minor is that Milkyway@home no longer will crunch via the AMD's.
But I will upgrade to nVidia later this year. This was my one time only adventure with AMD. Thanks for the help though.

FWIW my AMD card is crunching just fine ATM.

Just to ask... Which AMD card is it?

Did you see an increase in crunching-speed? Is it worth to upgrade the driver?

No, no increase of speed, but I had a flickering screen and some blank screens at times. Also a WU which normally took 33 minutes to crunch was running for 6 hours and not even at half. I had to suspend and then restart again to get it normally finished. That why I updated to the latest driver, but Milkyway is no longer working with that driver. So I should advise not to update if all is working fine on your machines.

5870's WILL work at MW, but of course it is your choice.
