Did you use the same acct number and have you connected to the project?

Yes, I was just going to start an other account, but that did't word as it told me I allready had an accout. I can't remember how I did the other computers. I have been trying to download work units for 2 days now, but it tells me I'm to soon, it updates my totals, but that it, and my computer does'nt show up at all in my profile area.

Have you attached the new computer to the project? From the Projects tab, button that says Attach to New Project. You'll need your account key and the project URL, both of which are in the email that you got when you started (you did save that, didn't you?) Make sure there are no leading or trailing spaces in the key when you paste it in.

another way to attach is to copy the account_*.xml file(s) from a working BOINC installation to a new one. Restart BOINC.
