The frequency-power-time graph of the seti@home graphic (via screensaver and task commands -> show graphics) is blank. This is the same problem as in Message 1221746. My own screenshot is below,



To answer the same questions asked there: I am using an Intel i5-3570K w/ HD 4000 IGP in use, no discrete GPU; drivers are all up-to-date; this happens with every WU; my previous WU validated.

Your driver may be up-to-date, but does it support OpenGL as required by the graphics?

According to Intel, yes it does, unless I am missing something? Either way, I see all other animation (the panes rotating in space, etc. I assume that is also OpenGL?)

I had been updating drivers via ASUS' website, but this time downloaded the latest graphics drivers direct from Intel and re-installed them. Problem still remains.

EDIT: Incidentally, I also have rosetta and weather@home projects going and see no graphical oddities with either.

Same thing here. It seems that the issue is withe the latest intel HD drivers.

I updated and have the same problem as you. I´ll see if i can downgrade the drivers

I also have this problem with my new HP laptop, and Intel HD Graphics 4000 GPU. I've installed the latest OpenGL also with no effect.

Sam, with your computers hidden it is very difficult to see what your computer is actually returning to the servers.
Unhidding will help trying to resolve this problem

Has there been any resolution to this problem? I have the same issue. The screen saver (or starting graphics for a task) shows the upper graph and data but the Frequency-Power-Time graph is blank and shows nothing. I even tried canging to 2D mode, but still nothing. I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Inspirion 620 with an i3-2120 3.30 GHz processor and what is apparently a Dell Generic GPU. I believe I have the latest OpenGL, but as folks have pointed out, I'm not sure why part of the display would work and part would not. Thanks for the suggestions/help.

Mitch M.

Still not sure why you continue saying this, as it isn't true. It's only true that AMD stopped OpenCL support for Windows XP, not for Vista and above.

There's normal OpenCL support in 12.10 and 12.11

And even then, the thread is about missing graphics, which require OpenGL support. G as in Graphics, not C as in Computing. Whole different kettle of fish.

Mitch - S@H uses OpenCL - Charlie Lema, or Compute Library. Which is a very different beast to OpenGL, which is a graphics library. Make sure you've got the correct one installed.

One thing to note is that, certainly with Nvidia GPU it is not possible to run the S@H screen saver at the same time as you are using the GPU to calculate.

sorry about that opengl library's are also installed with amd streaming sdk it also includes a streaming, shading analyzer for toughs programming things like the seti clients.

Bob - well, I checked my system and it does have OpenCL.dll and OpenCL Profile 1.1 installed in the system32 and the WoW directories. I downloaded Geeks3D GPU Caps Viewer and it lists the following info:

OpenGL 3.1 (Intel(R) HD Graphics 2000 with 130 ext.)
OpenCL 1.1, CPU compute units:4@3300MHz

I don't seem to have a GPU, it looks like I am running from the Intel Core i3,

The OpenCL demos in GPU Caps View run under OpenCL/CPU, but OpenCL/GPU is "not supported on my platform".

So, any hope to get the graphics running correctly?

Thanks or the help,

Mitch M

I have this problem too after building a desktop with:

Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-M PRO
BIOS Version: 1805
CPU: Intel i7 3770K
OS: Windows 7 x64 Home Premium

Windows 7 updates are installed.

Is there a solution to the graphics missing in the Frequency vs Power vs Time graph?
Bernie

Similar. Lower part of display now blank. Started okay when I installed SETI on new computer. Then it disappeared. I don't believe I did anything.
