The simplest of questions - there are Milkyway WUs currently available but they are not downloading - true for 3/4 BOINC applications. Have I done something wrong settings-wise? Can anyone help, please? Rogerp

Your pc's are hidden and you gave no details so it's very hard to know where to even start. I run Windows pc's and my Nvidia 760 gpu gets units whenever I allow them.


Thanks Mikey - sent you a PM - computers should be visible now. Roger


I got it and after looking at your pc's Boinc is not recognizing either one of your gpu's at all, if you have installed the drivers from AMD or Nvidia then maybe just a reboot can help Boinc find them again.

For example when I look at my pc here I see this under the gpu column:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (2048MB) driver: 362.00 OpenCL: 1.2

But yours is totally blank.


Thanks, Mikey - most of this is over my head - so please bear with me.

The decline in MW@home WUs started on 21/22nd June. That applies to my old Win 7 pc and my newer Win 10 machine. I am not aware of any fault or change of setting that would account for non-recognition of drivers.

Why is MilkyWay having problems when SETI and LHC are working just fine?

Before I "reboot" can I check what you mean by that? Is is sufficient to shut down and restart the pc, or do you want me to remove and re-install BOINC, or reinstall drivers?
Routine pc restarts this week have not changed the situation - so I guess you mean something more radical?

Thanks for your help.

Roger

One of my rigs has consistently not been getting any work for the past 10 hours (after I had to reboot it). The other is getting work, but also gets frequent messages saying "got 0 new tasks". Are the servers not capable of keeping up with the load?


It is some time since I received any MW WUs on either of my 2 pcs. Other applications are working as usual. Any advice? Thanks. Roger
