Help! Windows update messed up my miner

Help! Windows update messed up my miner

Unfortunly it sometimes happends that microsoft forces a Update trough the system even while we disabled all windows update.

It happend that after these updates are downloaded or installed your miner will not mine anymore, saying it cannot find any gpus. (You can see this by checking the device manager and seeing all gpus have a yellow exclemation mark). If windows hangs trying to recover and it won’t boot check option 3

 

Option 1 :

  • Reboot the system and make sure all the windows updates are cancelled or installed.
  • Download the ati patcher by clicking here.
  • Run the patcher and click on Yes after its patched
  • Reboot the system
  • Download and install the newest version of afterburner
  • Put the core clock on 1050
