This is a bug in the dang Boinc scheduler.
It only wants to send work to the fastest resource on a computer, ignoring requests by the slower resource.

Dang, I have discussed this many times and I wish Dr. Anderson would address it.

Anyway, as a work around, go to your 'preferences for this project' (Seti@Home preferences) and temporarily uncheck 'use GPU'. This will tell the scheduler that you do not want any work for your GPU, and it should then start sending work to only the CPU. Remember to change it back after you have accumulated enough work for the CPU.

Otherwise, you can try to wait it out and see if the GPU cache gets filled to the current limits, and then the CPU work should come.
