I've been having a problem with errors when trying to crunch Nvidia work. I've updated the driver and it still wont work. It's on my dell laptop listed as Home on my host list which you can see. I did install Lunitics awhile back, and it ran fine. For months now I'm unable to use the Gpu. Any thoughts?

I think my Lunatics app ak_v8b2 win32.vo.40 is no longer valid. Now what do I do?

Does Lunatics have a newer version?

Not the app fault.

The problem is you don't have enough free GPU memory:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/result.php?resultid=2849412150
Error on call (cu_err = cudaMalloc((void**) &dev_PowerSpectrumSumMax, sizeof(*dev_PowerSpectrumSumMax) * NumDataPoints*2 / 8)), file c:/[Projects]/X_CudaMB/client/cuda/cudaAcceleration.cu, line 458: out of memory
Exiting

(probably newer NVIDIA driver version uses more GPU memory)

You may try to disable Aero (the glass effect) to free video RAM

You may also try some of the newer apps (read the README_x41zc.txt file inside the .7z to choose the proper app)
