1) Questions and Answers : Windows : Windows will not start - what's the problem? (Message 1957956)

Just for info... ;-)

Here is a picture of a Fury X VGA card: https://gzhls.at/i/28/18/1282818-n19.jpg
The name RADEON (logo) is on, but no LED of the 8 LEDs, normally just one is on if the VGA card is active (after initializing).

Before I switched off the PC the VGA cards were running well.
I don't think just because of they wasn't in usage one of them is now damaged...
Or...?

I still hope it's a software problem... ;-)

No, I don't think it's a VGA card problem.

Maybe there is an easy way to repair Windows, instead of to install the OS new from scratch?

Or maybe there is an other problem - very easy to fix that Windows will start again?

Hello.

After the hot summer I switched on again my PC ("dual Xeon" with "four FuryX" VGA cards).

It's Win8.1 Pro x64.
"ASUS Z9PE-D8 WS" Mobo.

After the normal boot up procedure (HDD activity), I see the Windows logo on the screen, the points in a circle are moving,
no HDD activity, the first VGA cards LEDs are on,
normally then the 2nd, 3rd and 4th VGA cards LEDs will be on, but now, not.
Just the 1st VGA cards LEDs are on.

It looks like Windows can't initialize the 2nd VGA card?

The above mentioned mobo had/have always his own head.
In past, I switched on the PC, sometimes it hang during boot up, reset button and normal start of Windows.
Always the time in windows go wrong. Every week I could synchronize the time with the Windows server that the time go right again. It's so long time ago I can't remember if faster or slower than the correct time was.

OK, yesterday, I switched on the PC, I see the logo, reset button after 5 minutes because nothing happens,
the Windows logo again and something like 'the PC will be checked'. After 20 minutes nothing happens again reset button.
Windows logo and nothing happens.

Today I inserted the Windows DVD in the USB drive, loaded from DVD,
I clicked something like 'test, why Windows will not start correctly'.
Again the Windows logo and 'the PC will be checked'.
How long I should let it like this?
One, two hours, one day?

What I could do, that I don't need to install Windows again from scratch?

Thanks.

I don't know if I could/should still support the US BOINC project SETI@home.


I would like to understand the US citizen.


~ 50.x % of the US citizen elected D. Trump.
They have the same opinion as him?
Or they don't wanted Hillary Clinton as president?

~ 50.x % of the US citizen still have the same opinion as D. Trump?


I don't need to repeat all the things that D. Trump made.
He want to destroy the world?
The last, punitive tariffs for non-US steel and aluminum.
The EU will answer with punitive tariffs to Harley-Davidson, peanut butter, Whiskey...
D. Trump answer with punitive tariffs for german cars...
The EU answer with...

All the US citizen still have the same opinion as D. Trump?


It looks like the US citizen just like each other. No other outside the US borders.

I ask me, why I should still support an US BOINC project like SETI@home with my german money (hardware and electricity bill)?


Thanks.

If you detach/attach SETI in BOINC the PC keep the host ID - no new host ID will created.

Donald Trump - president of the USA?
I'm speechless.
Enough is enough. (May/2018)
Why should I support an american BOINC project with my german money (hardware and electricity bill)?
If the USA have an other president, maybe I'll think about to come back here.
In the meantime I support the german BOINC project Einstein@Home!
It's a pity. I'm sad. After so many years I supported SETI@home...
I wish you all success and good luck here.
Cheerio!

I'm stupid... ;-)
I looked to the online overview and saw that the 1st WU in progress is from 3 Apr 2018, 3:28:40 UTC.
So this is the old WU cache before I switched off the machine.

But, before I switched off the machine, I detached/attached SETI in BOINC.
Normally then the status of all WUs in progress will be changed to (something like) 'given up'.

This time this didn't worked.
BOINC got a new host ID from the SETI server.

How can I 'delete' this 'ghost' WUs, if when I detach/attach the SETI server will give a new host ID, instead of to 'give up' the WU cache/s?

I searched but didn't found anything about this ''normal' .vlar WUs to GPUs'.
Please could someone give me an URL?

- - - - - - - - - -

I have just Windows Defender - nothing specially adjusted, default settings.

This 'dual Xeon + quad FuryX' machine didn't had 'ghost' WUs before the break.

The only thing that changed, is that this machine use also both now, DSL + LTE/4G path.
The smaller machine J1900 + GT730 use both paths since months - and no 'ghost' WUs.

To explain...
I live in a small village and have just DSL2000RAM (0.5 MBit/s UL + 1.5-1.9 MBit/s DL).
I'm a Telekom ISP customer and have the Speedport Hybrid router.
If the DSL path is saturated the router send/receive the data also over LTE/4G.
Over LTE/4G additional up to 2.4 MBit/s UL + up to 16 MBit/s DL.
(currently altogether just ~ 1 MBit/s UL + ~ 6 MBit/s DL, bad connection)

Maybe the .xml file of the bigger machine is so much bigger than of the smaller machine that some infos are gone lost on the way to Berkeley?


My machine is the only one which have so much 'ghost' WUs?


EDIT of the title.


[EDIT#2: Currently 793 WUs in progress, this means 393 'ghost' WUs.]

Is there something 'bigger' wrong?

In the online overview are nearly 800 MB WUs in progress...

But in BOINC are just </= 400 MB WUs (limit of tasks in progress)...

Strange - so many 'ghost' WUs?

Hello

My quad FuryX machine get since Monday 05/21. 09:54 UTC 'normal' .vlar WUs for the AMD GPUs... - AFAIK they are only for CPUs...
(not the *guppi* .vlar WUs ;-)

Is there something wrong - or the admins decided to send them now to AMD GPUs also?

Thanks

I sent the admin Kyong over the SETI page a private message about this problem, I don't kow if he get a notification about.

Maybe someone can log in at Asteroids@home (maybe with IE or other browser) and can write a private message to Kyong there. In past I did it and got very fast reaction. I guess there he get a notification.

Post:
Thanks to all.

juan BFP, with your explanation I understood it! :-)

Maybe someone could get in contact with the boinc.mundayweb.com/wiki guys and ask if they could make it 'better' (more understandable for the poor english speaking guys ;-)?

Maybe like this (?):

    * Make sure you have no tasks in your queue (Finish & Upload, abort, report them all)
    * Go to the web site of the project, your list of computers and find your old Host ID number and how often BOINC connected the project server (on the bottom of the computer information overview).
    * Stop and Close BOINC.
    * Edit client_state.xml, find the <hostid> tags and replace the number here with the old ID.
    * A few lines above find the <rpc_seqno> tag and insert here the number how much times the computer connected the project server with added 1.
    * Save client_state.xml
    * Restart BOINC.



This way I would had understood it... ;-)



BTW. If someone would like to have a new host ID - no project tasks in BOINC...


    * Stop and Close BOINC.
    * Edit client_state.xml, find the <hostid> tags and add 1 to this number.
    * Save client_state.xml
    * Project update and the project server create a new host ID.

Post:
I know my english is poor... ;-)
But I thought I did it correct.

I took the old host ID and wrote it in the <hostid> line.
A few lines above is the <rpc_seqno> line, IIRC there was 250, so I added 1, so I wrote there 251.
Save.
Restart of BOINC, 'SETI project update' and the SETI server gave a new host ID - the old one isn't used.

What I make wrong? *confused*

Thanks

Hm, I thought I found the answer on my own, but - it didn't worked...

Here is the trick: How to revert to an older HostID number?

It's because of the newer BOINC Version, or why it don't work anymore?

Hello

I detached, attached a PC here at SETI.
Normally he would get the old host ID.
Today it didn't worked like this.
The PC got a new host ID.

For some time I read a trick that the PC can use again the old host ID.
I searched the web but didn't found it.

Someone could show me the way to the trick?

I'm happy that my PCs can crunch again SETI tasks.

A PC in the top 20 hosts at SETI (which I have) idle every week during tuesday's SETI server maintenance. :-(

For some time Windows Update (Win8.1 x64, Core and Pro versions) offered me:

Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7 for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 for x64 (KB3186539)

I made a web search and they said it shouldn't be installed, because something will be 'destroyed' - so I have hidden it (not installed).


Windows Update offered me now:

2017-09 Security and Quality Rollup for .NET Framework 3.5, 4.5.2, 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2, 4.7 on Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2 for x64 (KB4041085)

What should I do now with the old not installed KB3186539 update,
I should install it now, because the two newer updates will repair the destroyed part,
or I should install the two newest updates and let hidden the KB3186539 update?


Thanks
