Hi.

I am very much a lay person when it comes computers so please be patient and dumb down explanations for me please.

My pc was doing fine when I first started seti. It seems that it started having problems when an astropulse was sent.

I did go to AMD website and updated a few days ago. Problem isn't solved. I now have trouble on youtube etc.

thsnks,

If "driver failed and recovered" happened once (or rare, e.g. once a month) - just reboot.

Else (if happens often) - check the GPU temperature, e.g. by SIV:

You may also try to increase the GPU RAM (now is set at 256MB) in the computer BIOS to 512MB


If you don't want SETI tasks for your GPU (AMD E1-1500 APU with Radeon HD Graphics / AMD Radeon HD 6200/6300/7300 series (Wrestler) (256MB))
- go here:

... and set:
Use ATI GPU no
