Hi,

I have a problem with the computing time of this project on my computer. It run too much and my computer is heating a lot. I have changed a lot of time my preferences here and directly on my BOINC application, going from 50 to 95 % of processors and processors time, but there no change. I have restarted many time my computer and updated the project on BOINC, still nothing. I have a Dell Latitude 7390 running on Windows 10.

I know that it is this project who is wrong because I run 2 other projects (SETI@home and Asteroids@home) and they don't do that when I run only them.

Someone can help me ? If nothing can be done, I'll quit this project and I don't want to quit.

Ok, I have done others tests and the problem isn't from the MilkyWay project. I have the same problem with other projects. So it seems that my preferences aren't taken in account.

I'm not sure, but is your problem solved? It looks like your crunching times have reduced a good amount, but you don't have many tasks completed for me to feel confident about this.

I noticed on your SETI account that you are processing Intel GPU tasks with your UHD Graphics 620. "Conventional wisdom" has found that these tasks tend to slow down a computer's overall performance than if you didn't utilize this GPU. I would suggest disabling these tasks under your Seti@home preferences and see if your performance improves over the next few days.

Hi,

I tried to uninstall BOINC, but when reinstalled it back, all the settings where the same and the same tasks I got before the uninstall where there again. So and I got the same problem.

I have disabled the Intel GPU on my SETI@home account. Must I disable other GPU options like NVDIA and ATI one ?

No, BOINC will recognize that you do not have either brand GPUs on your computer. Boinc will not download tasks that you cannot run. It looks like all your iGPU tasks have been aborted and no new iGPU tasks were downloaded, so you should be in good shape to see if your processing time improves. Keep in mind, the ETA listed may be artificially high.

With regards to the same tasks being worked on, someone with more knowledge than me could probably help you more. However, I think that if you are not crunching the Intel GPU tasks anymore, the remaining tasks should (hopefully) finish faster. If you don't want to be patient with those task then you can abort them and see how a new task handles.
