My computer is working on SETI and AstroPulse projects.

Approximately two weeks ago, my total number of credits stopped accumulating at 299,344 although work is continuing to be done and new projects are being downloaded.

What needs to be done?

first try upgrading your ATI drivers to 13.5

You may also need to free up at least 1 CPU core to run the WU's properly

First off: You're using the cal_ati apps for your GPU, and these have been deprecated by the project due to problems (like your 9 errors). See this post and note that a fix might not be coming anytime soon.

The CPU units should continue to run normally.

driver: 1.4.635 is very old (Catalyst 10.4 - 2010.04.28):
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=6295175

You need at least Catalyst 11.12 (Catalyst 11.12 have an advantage (for OpenCL) over the newer versions as it does not use a full CPU core during GPU OpenCL calculations)

Look this table for info and links:
http://www.hal6000.com/seti/boinc_ati_gpu_cheat_sheet.htm


You can see 'Error while computing' (Run time: 0.00) for all your 'AstroPulse v6 v6.06 (cal_ati)' tasks
so in fact 'work is NOT continuing to be done' on your ATI GPU:
