Hello,

in need for some help regarding the issue from the thread title.

It looks as though after reinstalling win on an old machine, because of hdd faliure im geting this error message.

The GPU is an old HD4670, which was running AP tasks with no problem, a bit slower but ok.

Suddenly i get this message, and dont know how to correct it...

here are the messages i recieve upon startup...sorry for the longer post.

it was running normaly here...there is a task remaining still, has not validated for a long time, no other tasks on that comp as it has not been used in a while...but i might be enough to see that it has worked..

and the new/old host..

http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6831975

The previous os was win 7...could that be the issue?

Any other ideas?

Thanks

Which drivers are installed ?

For Win XP 12.1 drivers are the last drivers with OpneCL support.

Make sure OpenCL runtime is included.
Some hosts offering different versions without OpenCL runtime.

Check with GPUz if OpenCL is checked.

Every time I have to restart my machine with a GPU in it, Boinc never finds the GPU and I have to manually exit Boinc Manager and start it again. (For some reason, I have to do this twice because it can never manage to connect to localhost the first time.)
