GPU is bouncing all over the place, temperature is down in the 30's (C) and little is getting done.

Any ideas what is going on?

If you are running Windows reboot the pc as there is no way to reset the gpu in Windows

I've never heard of it before so googled it and found this:
"From a discussion with an AMD Radeon driver engineer, it does NOT restart the graphics driver. It does appear to discard the desktop surface buffer and re-create the allocation from DWM (on a healthy system the desktop goes black for a second). "

I've been in the tech realm for decades and have never heard of this.
Very odd, but I'll try it next time things get wonky.
Should I yell, "Hold my beer" first?

Is there a list of these bizarre key combinations.
I've seen dozens of them, but this was never included.

I tried it and got a beep with a momentary blank screen.

It will "...discard the desktop surface buffer and re-create the allocation from DWM"

I rather doubt this will affect Boinc much at all, but I'll be curious to tinker with it.

If you have more details I will attempt to duplicate the issue.
