I'll just be glad when you are up and running at full capacity.

Is anybody aware that the transitioner is down and that there are no new tasks available?

Thanks for the advice. I bounced my machine and the work unit that was going to take 32 minutes looks like it is going to take about 8. I thought this 7770 was going to do a better job. I'll just have to save up and get a better card when I can.
Regards,

Well, congratulations! Somebody did something that managed to slow my 7770 to a crawl again. It seems sometimes, that you are actually trying to deploy work units that don't work. I have a 4850 that used to process these work units faster than the 7770 is now! What are you gaining by this approach? How is taking a card that used to process work units in 4 minutes, and slowing it down to 52 minutes beneficial to you?
Just curious,

I have an ATI 7770 running Milkyway. It seems the work units are taking longer and awarding fewer points. Do I have something set wrong?

Posted 31 Aug 2012 by Mark W. Patton
I just installed a new nVidia GT640 in one of my machines and it won't run the opencl projects. It is not an SLI capable card. Running BOINC Client 6.12.34. Also running Win XP 32 all updates. Installed latest drivers from nVidia. The card shows up in Device Manager as operating. I think I am missing something. Hoping it is not because it is not SLI capable.

I'm still returning more errors than successful work units. My ATI 3300 is working fine but the 4850 is erroring out. I swapped 4850's today and still have the same problem. This started to happen with the opencl work units.

BOINC 6.10.58 appears to be for Mac OS X. Is it safe to run in windows?

My ATI 4850 is not processing the new work units. In an attempt to make the suggested upgrade, my 4850 is now not even processing the Collatz projects that it was processing fine. My machine is running an ATI 3300, 4850 and Nvidia 550. I am afraid I am returning more errors now than work.

I have been running Milkyway@home projects on my ATI 4850. Are these cards no longer supported?

Posted 8 May 2011 by Mark W. Patton
I am wondering what kind of points are allotted for the N-body projects. I've noticed that they start grabbing processor threads before they even start running. This shuts down processing on my other projects and reduces productivity on my machines. This type of project grabs all the processing threads of my 12 core system. If the points are high enough or the project important enough then OK. Please advise.
