Hi!

There is one big problem on one of my pcs.
Until yesterday he got lots of work for the nvidia card.

But today there is only one message, again and again:

24.08.2013 17:49:27 | SETI@home | Resent lost task ap_20jn12ac_B3_P1_00073_20130821_08276.wu_1
24.08.2013 17:49:27 | SETI@home | [error] Missing coprocessor for task ap_20jn12ac_B3_P1_00073_20130821_08276.wu_1; aborting

OK, that WU is not able to be computed on my pc.
So why is seti always sending me this WU again and again?
I dont want that. I want other WU, that can be computed on this machine, like yesterday. But there is no other work, the machine is empty soon.
Other pcs get work without problems.
Restart of Boinc didnt help.

How can i kill this task, so that it will not be sent any more? I see this task never in Boinc. The moment it is arrived it is aborted by boinc without to be seen in the Workunit-View.

The PC hat WindowsXP, AMD PhenomII X4 and GeForce9600GT.

Astropule is now deactivated in the profile, maybe it was an astropuls WU?

What else can i do to get new work for the geforce?

Turning off AP is a good choice as the 9800 would most likely not do too well on it.

The major reason for the missing co-processor warning is because of a bug in the version of BOINC manager that you are running. It does not detect Open-CL very well or at all.

Yes, openCL is not detected. That was no problem, since only Seti and WCG is running on this machine.

I got redeemed or so:
24.08.2013 18:30:24 | SETI@home | Didn't resend lost task ap_20jn12ac_B3_P1_00073_20130821_08276.wu_1 (expired)

After that a flood of new work arrived. :)
