Seems like some 84s and 85s are STILL being sent. Aborting those tasks until problem is permanently solved.

Doing what you suggested doesn't actually fix the problem. It is clearly a problem on the server side, not ours. No matter what I set the timeout to, the problem still happens.

It definitely is a downclocking issue. Work units reset at appx 50%. Aborted 76 work units and sent back. Will wait until issue is resolved before getting anymore.

I wasn't aware that there were any 8-threaded n-body tasks. Now I know.

I have an I7. Don't know what happened. Yesterday everything was working fine. Today, it is all screwed up. Switched back to GPU. Must have been a server glitch.

Just got a bunch of N-body tasks that require 8 CPUs. WTF is that? 8 CPUs?
Aborted them. Sent them back. Changed preferences.

I just had the same thing happen to me a few minutes ago. Someone seriously needs to look at this problem.

I failed to mention that I am running only GPU work units. Sorry for the confusion. Seems like there is a shortage of them. So I started doing CPU work units in addition to the GPU ones. When I did that, My work queue filled up normally. Happy day!

After some investigation, I have concluded that the project's validator is malfunctioning. It has over 100,000 tasks waiting to be validated. Looks like work unit rationing/limiting has gone into effect. Some word from the project head would be greatly appreciated.

I wish the head of the project would post a notice about this problem.

Is the project out of work? Have only been able to get just a few work units in the last 3 or 4 hours.

I had the same thing happen to me about a month ago. I did a manual install of my video card's drivers. I have an EVGA GeForce GTX 980ti. I went to NVIDIA's website and downloaded their newest driver for my card and installed it. Fixed the problem. Just do the same thing for your card.

Awhile back I had a slight problem. BOINC was aborting all GPU work units. Found out I had a bad driver install. Reinstalled driver and the problem was solved, so far.
