Message 1215282 - Posted: 7 Apr 2012, 21:20:06 UTC

I just downloaded my BONIC Manager and SETI@home. Before the download ended i clicked the advanced preferences and i couldn't get back to the main download screen. So I waited until the download finished there. It finished but the Graphic screen of the SETI@home project just disappeared and i don't know how to get it back up and running.
If you know how to solve this please answer as fast as possible. I am really frustrated with it.
What do I have to do to get it back up from the project advanced view.
Please help!

If BOINC Manager Simple View->check the slide show area of a running task, it should say "Graphics available". Click that.

If BOINC Manager Advanced View->Tasks tab, select a running Seti Enhanced 6.03 or Astropulse 6.01 task, then click Show graphics in the left menu.

Graphics do not work at Seti on tasks running on the GPU (Seti Enhanced v6.08, v6.09 and v6.10).

You can get out of the Advanced local preferences by clicking Cancel. When you click OK, these preferences will be used immediately and will override any of the same web-preferences on that computer only. To return to using the web-preferences, go to the advanced local preferences and click the Clear button.

These forums have plenty of questions asked by previous users, and they're full of helpful responses to those questions.

Have a browse around and read the forums, you might find your question has already been asked and answered.

Generally speaking though, BOINC works automatically on its own. You don't need the graphics running to be processing work. If you just installed the program, you may want to give it time to fetch work from the servers.

I personally have answered four people in the last two months on how to open BOINC Manager, select the Tasks tab, select a currently running task and click on the Show Graphics button that becomes available.
