As I said neither of your computers has a GPU that Boinc can detect.

This may well mean you do not have the correct drivers installed.

Do you know the make and mode of the GPU's you have installed?

And is it both machines or just one?

Your GTX960 is not showing up against your computer. This may be because the wrong drivers have been installed by MS - the solution is to prevent Window 10 updating graphics drivers, then get the drivers from the Nvidia site, then perform a "clean" installation, which is normally an option from the "advanced" options.

Please exit BOINC completely, then restart it.
Open BOINC Manager, press CTRL+SHIFT+E simultaneously.
From the event log that you opened, copy the first 30 or so lines and post them here.

I believe that line shows you have installed Boinc as a service;

That disables the GPU. it's a Microsoft thing not Boinc

Borrowing this from an older thread:

So you'll have to uninstall BOINC and reinstall it, then in the third installer screen click Advanced and uncheck the Protected Application Execution option before continuing the installation.


Once you have done that if you have the correct GPU drivers installed (from Nvidia not Microsoft) it should work.
