ProblemI run a 125MH/s ETH GPU mining rig but I was having issues where it would restart intermittently and when it would come back online it would obviously stop mining and i would lose mining time because of it.
- Automatic restart
- Run your miner automatically on startup
This is actually a very simple way to keep your miner in check so you don't encounter much or any down time. As an added bonus, it's very simple to set up.
Search for "task scheduler" in your windows search bar and open it.
Now select "Create Task..." from the right side panel. Give your task a name and check the "run with highest privileges" checkbox
Go to the "Triggers" tab and click the "New..." button. Here you should select "Daily" and select a date and time you would like this task to be run. Once you're done with your selection, click "OK"
Go to the "Actions" tab and click the "New..." button. Type "shutdown" in the program/script field and "/r" in the "Add arguments" field. "/r" as an argument will make your miner restart as opposed to just shutting down, so it's very important you add this. Once you're done, click "OK"
There we go, so now just hit "OK" and your automatic restart is all set. All we need to do now is have your miner start mining automatically when it's turned on.
Run your miner automatically on startup
Create a shortcut of your mining .bat file
Navigate to your windows startup folder which is something like"C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup".
Now just copy over your miner shortcut you just made into the startup folder.
So there we have it, following this example, your miner should restart once a day and on bootup start your miner program automatically. I would recommend doing a manual reboot now just to ensure your program starts up as expected.
