Hi,

For some months, 99% of the tasks for this project are immediately ending with following error.

computation error (0.283 CPUs + 1 NVIDIA GPU)

Is this due to the graphics card?
The project has been removed and re-added to the Boinc Manager with no change.

Running on...

Intel(R) Core(tm)2 Duo CPU P7550 @ 2.26GHz
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400 256 MB
osx 10.11.6
Boinc Mgr v7.14.2

Thanks,
Nancy

Did you install the Nvidia drivers from Nvidia? The normal drivers coming with the OS aren't the right kind to crunch with. I looked at your pc and it doesn't say anything about the version of Nvidia driver you are using. And besides that a 256mg gpu is NOT powerful enough for her, I believe the minimum is 1gb of onboard memory for the gpu to work here.
