    OpenCL fails on restart after installing drivers

    ganunbrar

      I've got this problem that my OpenCL doesn't work properly. I've done some investigating and I've noticed that whenever I install the drivers for my graphicscard OpenCL is activated untill I restart my pc.

       

      Here are my specs:

      OS:                Windows 7 ultimate

      Processor:      AMD Phenom II 3.4ghz

      Graphicscard:  Sapphire HD7950 with Boost

      Motherboard:   Asus M5A97 R2.0

      RAM:              16GB DDR3

      Disk:               Corsair SSD 256GB

       

      I've tried numerous drivers for the graphicscard but they all come out with the same result: No more OpenCL after restart. Before installing the drivers I used the AMD tool and the DisplayDriverUninstaller to remove the previous drivers.

       

      GPU-Z says OpenCL isn't working and running clinfo in commandline doesn't show the GPU at all.

       

      I'm running out of idea's and I hope you guys can help me!

          Sorry, I don't have any solution at this point. But, I've few questions as given below:

          1.

          @"tried numerous drivers for the graphicscard".

                    So, can I assume that you've tried with latest driver? If not please try with it and share your observation.

           

          2. If problem exists with latest driver, can you post output of clinfo once latest driver is installed successfully (before restart/reboot)?


          3.

          @"Before installing the drivers I used the AMD tool and the DisplayDriverUninstaller to remove the previous drivers."

                    Please can you provide details (package link / version information) of the tools and uninstaller package you've used?

           

          If your problem doesn't solve, I'll definitely forward your issue to the concerned team.

           

          Regards,
