I just downloaded Seti@home but I'm not seeing any graphics on my desktop for my screensaver. I'm only seeing the word BOINC appear as my screensaver with No Tasks Running. What do I do next to get it up and running? Please advise. Thanks!

You're running the CUDA app on your GPU, so graphics/screensaver should NOT be used to avoid resource conflicts.

Every Tuesday there is a maintenance outage at SETI@Home. The backlog of work requests, reports, uploads and downloads generally clears in about a day.
