I seem to have a lot of computation errors especially the shortest units, they go on after the deadline until I terminate.
It seems to be waste of CPU/GPU horsepower.
I have the latest BOINC Apps, have quit and reattached but to no avail??

I'm not a programmer yet its seems my system is just spinning its wheels.
If you have any suggestions please advise
Thank You

I still have too many hung up tasks. The reported computation time is in less than 2 minutes but the actual clock time is 10 or 15 minutes before it times out. This seems to be a waste of cpu cycles.

Are you running 2 or more tasks at once? Are you leaving a cpu core free just to feed the gpu? You are running a 280X gu, did you load the Crimson Red drivers yet? If not go here and pick yours off the list:

During the download and installation process it is VERY likely your pc will seem to freeze for upto 20 minutes or so as AMD scans your pc for stuff it can optimize, games, programs etc. It is in fact still going just wait it out, mine took forever even on a brand new Win7 install on a 120gb SSD drive!!
