The current veesion, 8.17.12.5936 for NVIDIA GeForce GT 420, does work well.

However, the newest version, 8.17.12.9628, can not process any SETI@home task.

for example, AstroPulse v6 6.04 (opened_nvidia_100) shows "schduler wait".

please tell me the solution.

Read Claggy's answer:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=72056&postid=1382815#1382815

Edit:
It may be also the problem with cudart.dll and cufft.dll discussed here:
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=71953

And why do you think 296.28 is "the newest version" I don't know.
Also 296.x is buggy (post say 296.10 and I'm not sure about 296.28):
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=69857

Best for you may be 266.58
http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvista-64bit-266.58-whql-driver.html


266.58 is so 'loved' that some people try hard to use it even on officially unsupported GPU
(we did it with small 'hack' (edit NV_Disp.inf) for GTX 560, if your NVIDIA GeForce GT 420 is not in the list of 'Supported products' (and driver don't want to install) you can do the same)

Message 1383800 - Posted: 23 Jun 2013, 1:09:00 UTC - in response to Message 1383417.  

I found the newest version, 320.18(2013/05/23), at the NVIDIA website and install it.

But, it doesn't process SETI@home works.
For example, AstroPulse V6.04 (opencl_nvidia_100) is in the condition "schduler wait" and is not calculated.

Is any operation required?

Please tell me the solution.

Please tell me the solution.

Read the first 2 links in my previous post.
Ask there (at those threads) as much more knowledgeable people read and post in 'Number crunching' forum.

Why did you go to 320.18 if Claggy say:
"I would downgrade your Nvidia drivers to the 314.22 drivers, I had the same problem when I tried running 320.xx Cuda5.5 drivers on my mixed Nvidia/ATI host."

(Yes, you don't have ATI but the advice to use 314.22 instead of 320.xx may still apply to you.
Never think that the latest driver is the best (proven by numerous bad driver versions in the past for both Nvidia and ATI)
)

Don't ask here again, post your question in 'Number crunching' ...

Why not?
This is the appropriate place for asking for help.
What more appropriate place than Questions and Answers, Windows for someone with a problem with their Windows system?

It makes a nice change someone using the appropriate forum for their question.

Then tell him "the solution" ;)

And yet another user using NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT (1023MB) driver: 320.18
reports "Scheduler wait: CUDA runtime, memory related failure, threadsafe temporary exit"

259.36 drivers predate the Cuda32 SDK the app was originally built with, the minimum driver is the 263.03 development driver, earlier drivers either won't work, or produce invalid work.

Eithier run the 266.58 driver, the 314.22 driver, or the very latest 320.49 driver.
