Hi,

I haven't got any nvidia tasks lately. Anyone else experiencing the same?

Your dual core pc is getting workunits just fine, but the i7 is just trashing units everytime it gets one, you may want to check it. Sometimes a simple reboot can fix the problems.

Yes, I've rebooted and upgraded all windows runtime-libraries but it still keeps happening. I was going to address that in another post as soon as the Nvidia problem is resolved. Or are the problems connected?

I have disabled CPU tasks for this project via BAM, is that the reason that the project won't give me GPU tasks?

Haven't had any Nvidia tasks for a few days either.
Keeps saying there are WUs for CPU, AMD cards and Intel GPUs though...

I have no idea

No cpu tasks and gpu tasks are separate and turning one off does not affect getting the other kind.

In your settings which tasks do you have allowed to come thru to you? I have this one allowed: OpenCL for nVidia GPUs (opencl_nvidia_gpu)

along with a check mark in the box: use nvidia gpu

When I look at my pc's I see this under the gpu section:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (2048MB) driver: 372.54 OpenCL: 1.02

But when I look at yours I see this:
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 (4095MB) driver: 372.54

I also see this on mine:
Microsoft Windows 10
Professional x64 Edition, (10.00.14393.00)

And this on yours:
Microsoft Windows 10
Professional x64 Edition, (10.00.14905.00)

Yours does NOT list the OpenCL version, and is a newer version of Win10 too, I wonder if they are related. If so I hope mine don't get updated to the same version as yours as I am cranking out the credits right now.

Guess this might have something to do with it:

17/09/2016 09:43:12 | | CUDA: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GTX 970 (driver version 372.70, CUDA version 8.0, compute capability 5.2, 4096MB, 3390MB available, 4087 GFLOPS peak)
17/09/2016 09:43:12 | | App version needs OpenCL but GPU doesn't support it
17/09/2016 09:43:12 | Collatz Conjecture | Application uses missing NVIDIA GPU

Thing is, I have crunched on this card, so it must be the preview build of Win10 that I run as part of the Insider program.
(I'm now on 14926).

Jut reload the working Nvidia drivers then and you should be okay.

FYI, on some machines, when a Windows 10 Insider Preview is installed, it disables OpenCL in BOINC for some reason, and the Nvidia drivers needs to be reinstalled. You can validate this if you have pending workunits which should say "GPU missing" until you reinstall the drivers. This happens in my laptop which has a GT 750m but I have not found this issue in my desktop with the GTX 1060 3GB card.

I'm not getting CPU or GPU WUs anymore?! I did stop accepting tasks for awhile as my GPU was overheating - took out one fan that wasn't working. I'm running Seti CPU & GPUs fine even on a one fan GTS 450!

I tried the big WUs but after processing for days and missing the deadline and getting no credit I now only want the Mini's but no joy!

Where are the WUs and why am I not receiving any?

It's doesn't say "opencl" on the driver version you are using, when I look at my pc here I see this: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (2048MB) driver: 378.49 OpenCL: 1.02

but when I look at your pc here I see this: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 (1024MB) driver: 342.01

See NO "opencl" and then version after it! Update the driver to a newer one, mine is the newest as of the other day, and try again.

Now your is a different story, your DOES have the opencl driver listed: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 (1024MB) driver: 350.12 OpenCL: 1.01

but maybe it is just one that doesn't work very well, try updating to the latest, 378.49 as of the other day, and see if that helps. If not it's probably a lack of mini units or your other projects are hogging all the gpu time.

Re-install 32 and 64 bit (if your rig is 64 bit) C-Runtime. This is found on the front page on the site.

OK thanks. I have turned on the Collatz Sieve but I have turned off CPU WUs so that I don't get the longer Collatz Sieve or Micro's for CPU. I have now received GPU WUs for the CS but still no Micro's on GPU. At least I am processing units that only take 4hrs and not days that go past the deadline.
