You have several choices:

1. eithier downgrade your your drivers to 196.xx, Boinc will then report about 255Mb again, and you are likely to get work again,

2. or do an app_info with the stock apps, this will over-ride the Server's memory requirement, and you will get work,

3. or get the Lunatics 0.36 Installer, and install the optimised apps which are suitable for your CPU, and choise the non-VLARkill Cuda app with Cuda 2.2 dll's,
(the Cuda23 dll's are faster, but you might not have enough GPU memory available to use them)

Claggy

Edit: your computers are hidden, it would be helpfull if you unhide them so we can see if it worked.

What are you trying to say?, because if you don't say anything, we're unlikely to be able to help,

I think he might be trying to say, that despite the driver upgrade, and the reportedly lower RAM the GPU is still happily crunching - just not getting new work. But I'm merely guessing.

Nobody is getting work,Well hardly any way.I was getting one CPU task at a time. Now im getting one cuda task at a time.

While Im here, I want to get rid of my auto kill for Cuda. Do I need to redo lunatics and not select auto kill? I did look at my preferance page but didnt see any magic button to push.

Yeah its not in preferences, uninstall Lunatics and reinstall with the right boxes ticked.

Preferably on an empty cache, so you won't trash WUs if something goes wrong.
