Hi:

I have a number of work units where the number crunching using the GPU has been halted. I was hoping that I could copy/paste the work unit here but no can do. I am sure other people have encountered similar issues like this.

So can you help me out here?

Unhide your computers on the MW preferences page.
Open the Boinc manager and click on the tools tab, then open the event log.
Hold down the Ctrl key while you highlight the appropriate lines, i.e. all the lines that pertain to any given stopped WU.
Then click on "copy selected".
You can then paste those lines into this thread.

Reboot the pc, Windows has no way to restart a stalled gpu once it has 'issues' and quits crunching. If that works then you are good to go, if not it's probably a driver problem and you will need to reload them. BU if you unhide your computers as SwiftMallard said, click on my name and you can see what someone can see about your computers if you do, it would help alot to help you figure out the problem.

Thank you to Mikey and All that took the time and effort to answer my plea for help.

I verified that I had the correct and up to date drivers. I went outside to do something and when I returned to my computer, to my surprise the GPU was working fine!

I have been using PCs for 30 years and I have seen some weird stuff in I.T.
