The issue has been solved I think. Sandy would not work on other projects either, but an error message got me headed in the right direction. I rebooted in safe mode and used DDU to remove the old Nvidia drivers, and then reinstalled the latest driver. So now my card is doing work again. I can only surmise that the installed driver got corrupted and simply reinstalling wasn't the answer. I know DDU also cleans the registry so it could have been a registry entry that was the culprit. In any event the issue has been solved.

I have tested Sandy's components and they appear fine, including the PSU, ram, grapics cards. Now it could be the motherboard I guess but I am undecided on that.

I will put Sandy to work elsewhere rather than continue butting my head against this wall. The other rigs will continue on Collatz for a while longer, at least with my GPUs. At several days per CPU work unit, I have decided to point the CPUs toward other projects.

Crunch on.

I followed the procedure outlined and no joy. I have now done on the order of 4-500 work units and all have failed. And now they are all showing as abandoned..............
Not sure how I managed to do that but I did.

I tried to put it back on seti and the gpu "failed to initialize".

This rabbit hole has gotten a lot deeper that I ever thought possible.

I am going to proceed now on the assumption that it is hardware related and try to check all the components before trying again.

If I do get the problem identified, I will post back here.
Thanks for the help.

No OC here, I run everything stock.
I will give your suggestion a try tomorrow, and get back with the results.

Thanks.

I have a rig that is throwing "computation errors", and defying my efforts to correct.
Rig is Sandy ID: 821495 : (https://boinc.thesonntags.com/collatz/hosts_user.php)
I7-2600K, with two Nvidia GTX 970 cards, Win 10 and Boinc ver 7.6.33
I have Visual C++ 2012 both x64 and x86 installed.
I have tried:
different Nvidia drivers.
removed Colatz and reattached to project.
rebooted, reset, updated, etc., etc......................
Also, this computer works fine with other projects, like seti, GPUGrid, so on.

And the failure occurs in seconds.

Latest Stderr output:
<core_client_version>7.6.33</core_client_version>
