please don't assume a start date denotes intelligence anymore than owning a Model T denotes car knowledge.

The seting for 1000 days will only cause BOINC to go into Hi Priority (Expiration Date First) mode, and it won't fetch work while in that mode. So as Arkayn advised, lower the first (min) to 3 days or so and try to build up a cache. By the way, the max is supposed to be 10 days, but I guess there's no error trapping on that field.

Then check to see if BOINC asks for work and if so, is it asking for both cpu and gpu work? May need to clean up the uploads first if you have too big a stack.

I used at the time (~1983) an 1 MHz Apple ][+ , maybe I'm older ;)

And I really laughed for a minute before be able to post :))
Combination of your complain "not getting CPU tasks" and then "set to 1000 days + everything is ok" was really funny ...

Next time you decide to set some value 10^n times more than the default/usual and for some 'unknown' reason the affected program go crazy: do not complain but think "what I changed recently"

The reason of setting to 1000 days it is because i dont get any error when i set it. Only get error when i set "+ 100 additional days"

Try setting to 0.01 days

...and below that 8 days

I'm pretty sure that will work better for you. You may also want/need to clear local preferences to restore web based preferences (advanced menu)

Alex, Zapiao is running 7.0.28, so that won't work - try Arkayn's suggestion of 3 + 3 (or less) to get started. I use a very low value (.01) for the second setting with 7.0.28. Keep that first value low or you won't get cpu work for a long time. You can increase it later when you get enough cpu work.

Are your other computers also set this way? I would think that with 4 computers, you may want to use the local prefs in BOINC to allow indivieual computer settings, but if you want to use the Web settings, clear the local prefs as Alex suggests.
