Good afternoon.

A few minutes after the start of the calculation, this application hangs, completely without loading the CPU and hard disk. I had to stop the calculation forcibly.

N-Body tasks are large difficult CPU memory demanding tasks. I looked at your computers listed under your account and possibly you may want to go to your account page, click Milkyway@home preferences, click edit preferences, deselect N-Body tasks. You will only get Milkyway@home separation tasks which will work better for you.

Ok, I understand you.

What then are the minimum system and hardware requirements for these tasks?

There is a new thread in Crunching that other people are talking about that seems to be what you are seeing.
