There must have been something off in that 8th Tequila slammer last night, or was it the moonshine after that!

Congrats to all of you, I'm sorry I couldn't join in, but I was in the land of Nod at the time. Thoroughly enjoyed catching up though.

CAR MAINTENANCE


The daughter asks her Dad, "Dad there is something that my boyfriend said to me, that I didn't understand."

"He said that I have a beautiful chassis, lovely airbags and a fantastic bumper."

Her Dad answered, "You tell your boyfriend that if he opens your bonnet and tries to check your oil with his dipstick I will tighten his nuts so hard that his headlights will pop out and he will start leaking out of his exhaust pipe."

Hmmm, both my PCs are very happy on 347.88, so I'll stay there for the moment.


It looks like TMMV bid time! A lovely one for someone to try to fault-find, either in Nvidia,or somewhere eelse. I'll help if I can, but I'm not that experienced with Modern Languages, Give me BASIC or Fortran any day!

Yes, 347.88 seems to be stable on both my PCs for now. Staying with that one for the moment.

Hi All,

This latest NV driver released 2015/05/18.

I installed it to try on my resurrected system(ID: 7578105 )

It repeatedly restarts itself under high load - both with3 and 2 WU per GPU. I successfully ran with 3 before the system died.

The PC doesn't reboot or anything, just the drivers restart, but that looses the fan settings, so the GPUs get hot very quickly!

I would suggest that these new ones are not suitable for crunching...

I'm hoping that 350.12 is still good to go & if so I'll install that one.

Posted 10 days ago by Profile Graham Middleton
Hiya, Thanks

It took a bit of spotting, I had set max disk usage to 10Gb, leave at least 10% free, and leave at least 100GB free in the BOINC website defaults. This is fine on my old system as BOINC is installed on a 1Tb disk.

The system I've just resurrcted has a 80Gb SSD C drive with everything on it (it'll only run BOINC/ S@H). The leave 100Gb free was the killer :-).

D'OH.

Hi Guys,

I've started BOINC on another system I've managed to rebuild, and Boinc ran one GPU and one CPU task for a bit. The GPU one seemed to complete OK, and the CPU one got to a bit over 20%, and now I get the following in the messages file:

The disk that has BOINC installed on it has over 38 Gb free, & I don't understand.

Any help or hints gratefully received.
