And now this:

6/1/2012 9:10:28 AM | SETI@home | update requested by user
6/1/2012 9:10:29 AM | SETI@home | Sending scheduler request: Requested by user.
6/1/2012 9:10:29 AM | SETI@home | Reporting 1 completed task, requesting new tasks for CPU and NVIDIA
6/1/2012 9:10:37 AM | SETI@home | Scheduler request completed: got 0 new tasks
6/1/2012 9:10:37 AM | SETI@home | Project has no tasks available

/me shakes his head in disappointment

32 CPU cores and 300+ GPU cores on this machine and all I can do now is one GPU workload at a time...sad.

What cache settings are you using? Don't try and use a too big cache setting as the Server's scheduler will fill your fastest resource first,
the other thing to note is that Boinc 7 uses a totally rewritten scheduler, and the Cache settings suitable for it are different to Boinc 6,
for Boinc 7 use something like:

Maintain enough tasks to keep busy for at least 2 days
(max 10 days).

... and up to an additional 0.01 days

This will cache 2.01 days work maximum, once the cache drops down to below 2 days work, Boinc will ask for work again,

Thanks much. Went back to an older driver and everything is working again.

driver: 295.73 have "sleep bug" if your monitor is connected to DVI and you let Windows to sleep the monitor (CUDA will disappear)

(If monitor is connected to VGA - No problem,
If monitor do not auto-sleep (even on DVI) - No problem)

Nothing works so far. I went back to version 6. Still same problem. All I get are cuda_fermi tasks.

Grrr...

Until your cache is filled with enough GPU tasks that's all you'll get. There are various tricks, like turning off GPU processing until you've got enough CPU tasks that work sometimes. Of course non of them work if you are running other (CPU only) projects and they have filled the CPU part of the cache...

I went back to version 6

"version 6" of what?

What do you see now about VRAM available?:
5/28/2012 11:49:53 AM | | NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 8600M GT (driver version 301.42, CUDA version 4.20, compute capability 1.1, 256MB, 176MB available, 91 GFLOPS peak)
5/28/2012 11:49:53 AM | | OpenCL: NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce 8600M GT (driver version 301.42, device version OpenCL 1.0 CUDA, 256MB, 176MB available)


And you have "sleep bug" here:
