Greetings! I've been working on this for 3 days and could sure use some help!

I had a working GeForce 210, which reported on my Computers page and I had GPU work assigned to the computer. Once my system automatically updated from BOINC version 6.0.... to 7.0.64, my GPU said suspended. So, I have now updated my Nvidia driver to the latest, 320.49 and even updated BOINC to 7.1.1 (Beta) and I STILL have no GPU card. I am at a loss!

Additional information: I am running 30 machines with a variety of NVIDIA cards, I JUST noticed each of the boxes are dropping the GPU's since the installation of 7.0.64. I am seeing this across the board on almost every machine. I am running Windows 7 Pro and all the NVIDIA Drivers are current 320.... Am I the only one experiencing this problem?

Once my system automatically updated from BOINC version 6.0.... to 7.0.64, my GPU said suspended.


It is extremely important to note that BOINC does not automatically update itself. Only the user can apply updates to BOINC. Very likely, you mean once BOINC automatically updated SETI@home from version 6.x to version 7.x (easily confusing because SETI@home is currently at the same version level as BOINC but they are separate programs).


As to the problem you're having, any chance you're using RDP to remote into each machine?

Actually, That is EXACTLY how I am accessing all of the machines through RDP Session. Thank you for the clairification of the software update too! I am interested to hear the fix or what the problem is with the RDP access!

When you RDP into your CUDA machines, Windows switches to a different driver on those machines and therefore your CUDA cards are temporarily disabled.

I am using Remote Desktop to log in on my home-machine, but then BOINC does not detect a GPU. Can't you fix that?

This is not a BOINC problem. When using the Remote Desktop Procedure (RDP), you are using the drivers that come with the RDP. These only allow the RDP, not anything else fancy, so if you want that fixed, you'll have to yell at Microsoft. Good luck. :-)

BOINC 6.10.17 and above will stop work being done on the GPU when BOINC detects someone logging in through RDP. It will then put this work on hold until you log out of the system.



Something like UltraVNC will allow you to view the computers and keep on crunching.

Okay, So I see it is the RDP session that causes the pause while in session. I could work around that, but the SETI@Home web page no longer reflects any GPU's. Additionally, now I no longer have any GPU work scheduled, probably because SETI does not see them.... Any suggestion for restoring their existence within SETI. I know I can not do it from a remote session....

Thank you for your help!

The only 'work around' is to not use RDP (which uses/switches to something like simple VGA drivers by Microsoft)

I didn't used any flavour of VNC, I like TeamViewer:

Everything will be OK if you stop using Microsoft RDP and start using anything different for the same purpose.

Thank you for all the help!! I will certainly be much better off with your support!!

Take care and Happy Crunching!! See you soon!
