Hi.

I've just got a new pc and while I can download work for seti, it just sits there doing nothing and saying it's ready to start. Milkyway@home is working fine. Help please.

the servers are putting out shorties right now. This eats up all the bandwidth because the GPU users return them so quickly. They only have a 100Mb pipe so its pretty much been flooded for the last couple days to a week

You can't have more running tasks than your system allows.
If you see all CPU cores at 100% and your GPU at high load then Milkyway@home is using all the resources at the moment.

How many tasks show "Running" in BOINC Manager?
Check also the list of processes in Windows Task Manager (sort by CPU %)

I have 4 tasks running at the moment, all milkyway. I have about 30 seti waiting to run but no doing so. I have suspended all but two milkyways but still seti is sat about waiting. Bit like real life :-)
