Grant, I did as instructed and ran a Fresh download of v44 but there was no (opencl_nvidia_SoG) to be found.
Sooooo, I uninstalled Everything again and just installed stock With Zalsters config that he helped me with. Cause it downloaded a CRAPload of cuda 42s and 50s.
Stock is running nvidia_SoG's OK so far.
What did I Screw-Up? :o\

You got an old Luntics installer. ;-)

You'll find the latest Lunatics installer "0.45 Beta 6" here, http://mikesworld.eu/download.html.

Cheers.

I just got done checking and discovered that...Thanks Wiggo. :)

That My Friend will be the problem...I just don't get it. Also the config file that I run on my other 2 boxes were written by Zalster... I "Think". ;)

Once you've got it installed and running, post back here and people will be able to help you out.

I take it this will go in the Phenom II X4 945 system already running Lunatics?
I'd shut down BOINC completely, and disable it in Windows Startup for now so it doesn't restart when the system does. Download the video driver from Nvidia, shut down the system- pull the old card, stick in the new one & re-boot. After it settles down, uninstall the old video driver, do a clean install of the new driver. Re-boot several times as required.
Re-run the Lunatics installer & make sure to select the SoG application for NVidia this time.
Restart BOINC & if everything is good, all your current GPU work should continue to be crunched by the new video card, and any new work should download & have (opencl_nvidia_SoG) appended to the end of the Application details.
If that's all good, then re-enable BOINC in Windows Startup.

Come back here, and there should be a few configuration settings available to see how things go.


I'm going to run down all of my old tasks first and upgrade BOINC first. I Have already set to no new tasks. Been wanting to upgrade first.

Either side is open to surprise at this point.
Let us hope that one such surprise could come from low percents, being siphoned off by Johnson & Stein. So much that either Johnson or Stein wins or that whichever of Clinton or Trump wins, the percent is so low it cannot possibly be seen as a "mandate".

I was given a "PNY XR8 performance edition 9800GT Pci 2.0 video card" after doing a puter upgrade. Will it be any good for crunching?
