I keep having 'computational errors', seti seems to crash or something, always at the very end of the WU, and also it claims that it has done 60% or a WU in like 30 seconds, but then takes the normal 2 hrs to do it, whats with this.

Yeah, but We don't get any credit for it, and also it won't start another WU until i click OK on the error msg. Something about memory can not be written.

Computational errors aren't normal. Is this happening on your laptop or your AMD? Are you overclocking heavily on that computer or is it doing it on both your computers?
