Hi, I run mini-collatz on my GF8600GT in a dual GPU setup and I get a lot of computation errors. I got those even without my GTX-550OC added to the system. I can't even suspend a collatz task as it will result in a displaydriver crash and a computation error. I also use my GF8600GT as my main display output to my TV. Display on the GTX550OC is totally disabled as I want that card fully dedicated for crunching other non collatz tasks as collatz is the only project that seems to run on my GF8600GT 256MB card. I use the latest nvidia driver 280.26.

And that's the problem ;) I also had a lot of errors on my (different) cards since 280.26. Feel free to use an older driver version or wait until the next nvidia release.

If you take a look here in the forum, maybe it helps to deinstall physx from the 280.26 driver release.

The GF8600GT doesn't support PhysX, or doesn't that matter. And I don't know if my other projects that run on the GTX-550 make use of it.

Try latest Nvidia 285.62 (released yesterday), this works at my machines.

I installed those last night. Didn't have a driver crash yet. I now also know it wasn't caused by running collatz, after I suspended it yesterday evening I had another driver crash. So hopefully no more driver crashes, and I hope that that also solves my computation errors.

Well, suspending or stopping collatz definitly crashes my videodriver, and I'm using the latest driver version Nvidia 285.62. I'm only running mini-collatz.

I'm not surprised, collatz hasn't got apps with the thread safe api yet.
