Service is good for say servers that are headless (no graphics). Before Windows Vista, Service would work with video, but MS made some changes that cannot be bypassed and it stayed in the software.

If you machine is home and you are the only user, you can set the machine to just automatically login and no need to worry about Service mode.

Thanks.

But what exactly is the advantage to installing as a service? Is it so that crunching will start even if no one logs onto the computer?

I may have just realized the answer to my question...I installed Boinc as a service. I think that means no GPU crunching?

I'm trying to run Colatz on my GPU, but when I installed Boinc, it didn't see that I had one. It's running on the CPU. I could use some help. Thanks.

The funny thing is that the 8400 was causing the WUs on the GTS 450 to error out. I was thinking of getting another GTS 450, but there's no guarantee that these two would work in harmony?? Maybe if I SLI'd them?

Well, I thought I had it licked. Boinc started running two Collatz WUs simultaneously, but all the WUs came in with errors. I changed the config file to only include the GTS 450, but still got the errors. So, I removed the 8400 GS from the rig and now all WUs finish to 100%. Wuzzup with that?

I'm trying to run Collatz on two GPUs in the same rig, a GTS 450 and an 8400 GS (ok the 8400 is lame). I read the thread about hooking up a second monitor to the second card and adding a config file to the collatz directory, and I did that, but I still only see one WU running. Boinc, however, sees two GPUs.

Although I have been crunching a long time, I am not exactly a computer wiz. I would like to run this new GPU with optimized apps, but am not too sure which files to download. Card will be installed on an Intel Q6700 (OCd to 3.2gHz), 6 gig RAM, Win 7 Professional 64 bit.

So,,,which files to download and how to install them??

280.26...I don't believe that's the problem.

just upgraded from an 8400 gs to the GTS 450. GPU load is only averaging about 70%. Normal? Is there a way to get it to 100%?
