I run two Thinkpad Laptops with Nvidia Cards
1- Quadro 2000M 2GB
2- NVS 5400 1 GB

Both Laptop have newest Nvidia Driver and Boinc Version
I receive no GPU work on both machines.

-solved-

The checkbox for "receive GPU work" on the website was not set.

Hi everyone,

I haven't been that active with SETI and boinc setup on my pc. I have a moderate pc with a few ok specs:

CPU: core i-7 4770K (clocked at 4Ghz)
GPU: MSI nvidia 960 GTX 4GB OC Edition
Memory: 24 gb ram

When reading up on some info, I see people allow their gpu to be used instead of CPU, or maybe both for that matter.
I updated every piece of software to the latest versions. Never use Windows update to update drivers.

When I check Task Manager (preformance) I see CPU is on full load.
Using Speccy to see usage and temperatures, I see my GPU is idle. How can I fix it that my gpu will be used wit boinc?

Thnx in advance

Just now there is little point in using the GPU for work on the main project as there aren't any tasks available for the Nvidia GPUs- the applications are still being developed and tested.
