GPU missing since I upgraded nvidia drivers to 335.23 release date 3/10/2014

I suppose when MW@Home updates they will re-appear?

MilkyWay does NOT like the latest and greatest drivers from either Nvidia or AMD, they like what they like, usually 1 or 2 versions behind, and it works well for them. I am NOT saying the newest won't work, but sometimes they don't due to some major changes in the drivers. It can take time for all the projects to make changes in their system to account for how the newest drivers affect the units.

Also unless you are also gaming, updating to the latest and greatest drivers is not always helpful for crunchers as we are NOT their primary market. In fact sometimes the newest drivers slow crunching down by 10% or more.

First of all, it's NOT milkyways fault(despite the utter nonsense mikey posted). It's boinc that's not detecting your GPU in the first place, so milkyway doesn't know about it at all.

So either upgrade you boinc client to some buggy alpha version or downgrade the driver to the one that worked preiviously.

Ah gotcha, I may downgrade then, no worries, I figured as much, but just wanted to hear it from you guys before I rolled it back.

Thanks!
