I learned, that Catalyst 12.1 ist the latest version coming with OpenCL-drivers, that work with WINDOWS XP. So I went back, the GPU is now detected by BOINC (CAL: ATI GPU 0: ATI Radeon...; OpenCL: AMD/ATI GPU 0: ATI Radeon...), and jobs like "ap_21ap11ae_B6_P1_00272_20130515_20093.wu_1 (opencl_ati_100)" are frequently sent, but all these jobs terminate after a few seconds, leaving "Berechnungsfehler" (calculation error) in the status-row of BOINC-Manager. Is there anything I can do, or should I forget to use my GPU with BOINC?

I don't think you GPU is capable of running the app. You'd need to run the hybrid app from Lunatics.

IIRC it has something to do with your memory bandwidth.

The problem is:
max WG size: 128
Max work group size: 128

(You can't fix this - it is in hardware)

SETI OpenCL apps need WG size: 256

(The thread title is not correct, e.g. Radeon HD 48xx can run these apps)

Uncheck 'Use ATI GPU' here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/prefs.php?subset=project

You can try to use this GPU for other projects (but I don't know on which project it will work)

milkyway wont work either... most projects will reject the card if it isn't able to do double precision.

Thanks to BilBg´s and all the other comments. I stopped to try using this GPU.
