Hi

I often use RDP and BOINC is always on when i log in with RDP.
but few minutes later i logged in, the all CUDA tasks stops(GPU missing)
I've searched and found that Windows terminates nvidia driver and runs its own driver which customised to RDP. hence, GPU's missing.

I get the point. but is there any way to get it back on?
I've tried some tricks: logging off from RDP terminal and restarting with manager. Didn't work, guessing that CUDA driver revives when logging on with Console.

How can i revive this driver?

BOINC will detect when you leave RDP and restart GPU processing. If you want to do GPU processing while you're using RDP, you need to use an external program such as LogMeIn, or the FreeVNC clients, as these use the driver installed by the user.

You can do your work with RDP, log out of RDP and then use VNC (or possibly LogMeIn - haven't tried that) to restore the CUDA drivers.

Which VNC are you using to log in later?
