zeek and Horribleron are actively addressing their
results issues. Neither was really aware their
machines were having error/invalid problems. Both thanked
me for pointing out there was an issue.

Thanks to both of them for addressing the problem
and doing it promptly.

Vyper (1635) is taking action to fix the machine generating
bad results and he sent me a PM. Thank you Vyper!

Another user is generating more Error than Valid:

Sorry but as before this thread turns into a witch hunt. The above PC hasn't contacted the servers in nearly 2 months, either a problem or the owner has given up. He has NO tasks in progress. There is NO computing error here. The task simply timed out!

I will now hide my PC so I can't be picked on if I have a machine crash as I have had happened before.

Please only use this tread for ongoing high number failures.

Definitely looks like a prob with NVIDIA.


I'm having frequent Problems with NVIDIA on My Desktop PC, which is Running VISTA Home Premium; mainly with The BOINC Graphics (Project/Task Screensavers), which will Run/display for quite a while, but will then Stop Working. However, this one (HP Notebook) is Running WINDOWS7 but does not have any Problems with NVIDIA. So i'm wondering if it may be a Problem with VISTA: Maybe the certain NVIDIA Drivers are Conflicting with VISTA, or Vica-Versa . . .
. . Just A Theory.

Much more likely it's a problem with the GPU (any GPU) trying to do two things at once - some high-power computations, and display eye-candy in the form of screensavers or project graphics.

There are a few - a very few - times when running graphics at the same time as running science can be useful. For example, a computer in a shop or school where passers-by can see it could prompt questions about what the computer is doing, and the follow-up conversation could introduce a new volunteer to the concepts of distributed computing and doing scientific research at home. But apart from that...

Try disabling the screensaver and not displaying graphics. See if it runs more stably then - your productivity should go up as well.

Since 1 Jan 2013 through 23 February 2013

Folks with bad results, pointed to by my Inconclusive list.
I sent PMs to all but 2 (the 2 anonymous).

20 different hosts:
2 responded to PM and are doing ok now.
6 are now producing good results, without responding to PM.
5 no longer responding to seti.
7 are still doing badly: error and invalid.

Well I've sent off 67 pm's this month (10 replies) and come across 17 bad anonymous rigs.

26 being GTX560Ti's, 10 being 6xx cards, 4 still using "sleepy" drivers and 3 still using the old V12 app.

Cheers.

Sent 40-50 PM's about misbehaving machines, but

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/results.php?hostid=5295453

is particularly egregious, it was producing horrible results
in December 2012 and is still doing so. PMs
to Bill Martin (user 9216028) get ignored AFAICT.

I've given up sending PM's out for the time being but you can see latest list of bad wing-rigs here, http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=71767&postid=1372932.

I think this project have become to complicated to be seen as a set and forget project. Even for stock installations. There's too many things that can go wrong, even if you install just as stock.

There needs to be some kind of total shutoff (or max one task/day) for host that misbehaves consistently, stock or anonymous. If, and when they can prove that they have corrected their issues, they could get, let's say 1 more tasks each day, until they've reached the maximum allowed tasks.

As of Aug 14, since Dec 2013 I have PM'd all of the 103
hosts I noticed (via Inconclusive results vs my
results) are producing
bad results.
Many days I don't have time to look, of course.

A small percentage of all Seti hosts, but makes me wonder
how many there are that behave badly. Hopefully the science
will not suffer.
