Please upgrade your Lunatics app. The V12 app you are running is not compatible with your GTX 550Ti. It is giving nothing but -9 results.

Sorry to post this but I don't have any other way to get ahold of him. Hopefully he is visiting this forum and will see this. Probably not but it's worth a try.

I think it would be a great idea to have every user to be using a non anonymous account. seems its so much trouble to contact fools think that there is a conspiracy about and hiding their ID is better than actually having someone contact them when they are grossly wasting their time and ours

Even better would be a working quota system, or why is his GPU still getting 100 tasks per day, with over 130 invalid tasks in the list and 0 valid?

Indeed so. Only yesterday, I noticed some very low credit results....didn't even get double figures for 2 hours crunching on an E8400! Thats how bad it was. There were pages full of inconclusives for their machine and those that were OK, were very low in credit awarded. Once again, an anonymous user, so I just went through my WU's in cache and aborted all the WUs 'tied' to that same machine. It may not make my 'consecutive valid tasks' stats look good, but its better than wasting my time and electricity.

PC with almost only -9 result errors. No idea what's wrong, heat?

have you tried a restart of your computer? that is the usual first step for nVidias with the -9 error

It's not mine, it belongs to Klesh. Hope he reads this and tries a reboot then :)

What's more disturbing than the problems of this particular host is the fact, that here once again the quota system seems not to work, at least for the GPU, as can be seen on the application page of this host. The "Max tasks per day" value is somehow locked to 100. Should be somwhere near 1 after all those invalid results. Have observed same thing at Milkyway, many hosts producing nothing else than errors had 10000 tasks a day all the time... so that leads to the question: is it a bug in BOINC?

I'm not sure that has ever worked correctly. When I see "Max tasks per day: 400" & "Number of tasks today: 3600" on one of my hosts it does seem to show something isn't lined up right. Then again I have also seen a lot of cases where "Number of tasks completed" is less than "Consecutive valid tasks". If it were just a few off or maybe the number of tasks done that day I could understand maybe something isn't synced up. If that is the case on several machines the count is about a week behind.
