Today, 12-03-2008, my laptop shows 54 Client Error/Compute Errors. I have had 1 or 2 sometimes and wonder if there is a problem here or somewhere else or if this might be a normal thing on ocassion. It has been running for over a year with very few problems showing up. Any suggestions?

Thanks, BILL

Hi,

sorry client errors not my area of expertise

You could try detaching and re-attaching.

OK, looking at your tasks, I see lots of exit code -4, "SETI@home error -4 Can't allocate memory" and exit code -529697949 (0xe06d7363).

This latter one seems to crash the Windows debugger most of the times as well, but the very first one that did it gives a clue:

- Unhandled Exception Record -
Reason: Out Of Memory (C++ Exception) (0xe06d7363) at address 0x7C812AEB

So it would seem that something is taking up all your normal and page file memory.
You may want to try to increase the Windows page file, see if that helps. You may also try to run as little else as possible when you crunch BOINC.

Something is eating up massive amounts of memory and it isn't Seti (which takes at maximum 48MB with the graphics on). The problem lies on the laptop somewhere, so do check the page file size, increase it if necessary. Add RAM if possible. Clean up programs that start with Windows startup. Throw out all the 'bling', like animated menus etc. as they only eat up lots of memory. Make sure you don't load thousands of fonts, of which you only ever use 8. Things like that.

Thank you, Jord. That was a part of my problem but the rest will need a fix from an 'expert'. Anyway, I can get back to limited crunching for now. Thanks again.

Bill
