Ah, so this is a server-side issue why MW@H won't download WUs for my GTX 970? Whew, thought it was me :)

All the NBody 1.10 tasks for my GPU are failing. CPU tasks are still running fine. I'm running a GTX680 w/4GB (Nvidia v320.18, CUDA v5.50, Compute 3.0, OpenCL 1.1). Any ideas?

Alright, here's one that some diagnostic testing ultimately revealed. My GTX560Ti was failing. It finally decided to die today, so I replaced it with another. So far it's processing with no problems! Stupid video card...

Okay, I just detached MW@H, rebooted, restarted BOINC and rejoined the project.


The key is here "Microsoft Windows", in Windows when a gpu fails the ONLY way to reset it is to restart the whole pc, not JUST Boinc! It is a Windows thing.

He rebooted, that's restarting the whole PC.


Exact-a-mundo! For the time being, I'll just disable GPU WUs on MW@H.

Okay, I just detached MW@H, rebooted, restarted BOINC and rejoined the project. After downloading the first batch of jobs, the very first WU was the below WU which failed.

MilkyWay@Home 1.00 runs fine. It's the MilkyWay@Home 1.02 (OpenCL NVidia) that's failing all of a sudden. Thanks for any help![/url]

Me too. That's the same issue I've been having! Here are the last 5 failed WUs.

Any help would be appreciated!

I too had a bunch of failed WUs - all from this job batch, and all dated sent on 30 July 2012 22:42:57 UTC and after. Nothing has changed on my PC, so any further ideas would be swell.

Thanks! I ran into the same issue after "upgrading" to BOINC 7.0.28, then all the OpenCL tasks I downloaded would no longer run. I actually had to uninstall BOINC 7.0.28, delete all the BOINC folders and reinstall BOINC 7.0.25 fresh. At least it's working now.

I guess it got fixed. I haven't had a failed work unit since 6/27. Awesome job guys!

I tried running more tasks with the same results - compute fails.

I just put up the three latest links. Any help in discovering why this is all of a sudden not working properly would be appreciated. Until then, I just suspended work on NVidia OpenCL tasks since the one CPU task I downloaded recently worked fine.

Okay, I detached from the project and reattached to it. Once reattached, BOINC downloaded two work units.

ps_separation_10_2s_sample_2_1340672783_199705_0 - Milky Way 1.02 NVidia OpenCL - Failed in 1 second

ps_separation_10_2s_sample_2_1340672783_199706_0 - Milky Way 1.00 - Still running without an issue.

PC specs as follows
AMD FX6100
16 GB RAM
Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1
BOINC v7.0.25
NVidia GTX560Ti - driver 301.42

This issue only started in the last couple of days, and I've changed nothing on my PC in that time, so I don't know what it is.

I tried rebooting, reinstalling video drivers (301.42,) and nothing is alleviating it. The only program running my GTX 560Ti is BOINC. This only started in the last couple of days, and I haven't made any PC changes.

Oh, and my PC picked up 25 new tasks at 0308 EDT, and then proceeded to have computation errors for each and every one of them within the next three minutes. They were all in this new batch of work units. The units that failed are as follows.

I'm just going to detach from the project and reattach at this point and see if that works at all.

All failed within 20 seconds of starting. If there's anything I can try, please let me know.

Every one of these tasks I've gotten for the last few days has been ending with computational errors after a few seconds. Any ideas how to fix it? PC ID: 338106
