This thread might help: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=81274#1871790

I know it says "Boinc not running" but what it is discussing is the screen saver not loading.

HTH,

You should really never leave your email address in your posts or in your signature unless you like being added to spam lists.

I KNOW this MUST b a MS interdiction. Have the Creator's Update BUT resolved all THOSE "issues".

Tonite - Fri 6/16 - it suddenly dashed into my brain/mind my SS isnt working - the intended way. It worked all day, up to my revelation.

I had changed NOTHING, i.e., under LOCKSCREEN SETTINGS ==> SS Settings. Of course by now, any relation to previous values is offset by my incompetence.

In a nutshell, after the appropriate time - 1 min - the SS, well, the screen goes to black, the BOINC logo dances ALL over the monitor, underneath saying "BOINC Screensaver Loading" and that's ALL it EVER says. No elegant, full-color, 3D graph; just "loading".

Can ANYONE puzzle this one out?????????????

And PSE, sum1, what in the wide-wide-world-of-sports is the DIFFERENCE between the BOINC SS and the PROJECT SS?????????????????????

I thank-u in advance, I weep in solitude, I hope in perpetuity,

SCREENSAVER PART DEUX

Forgive the xtra post, but I have an update abt my BOINC or SETI@HOME SS, to wit:

NOW I get the "Running Tasks" part/page/portion of the SS; HOWEVER, it displays ONLY 1 task running. I have ALWAYS had 4 tasks running at the same time. Indeed, BOINC Manager, under TASKS, has but a single task running but a full-load of tasks "Ready to Start". My system has 1 Intel GPU plus i7 CPU.

I fiddled with changing my preferences for the SS but nothing changed. I then reapplied my "standard" prefs.

It wd seem, now, the question is why do I not get the graph? Why only 1 task running?

As always if u or any of ur xpert genuises crack this enigma, I will grant u 3 wishes within MY VERY meager powers UNRELATED to computing.

TNX in advance,

Hey Ozz,

But pse, for my edification, who on the SETI@HOME Q&A WIN forum wd WANT to spam me??? We r all on the same quest, no?

Hey Tom,

Forgive me but MY choice of verbiage is "FOREVER LOADING". No where does "it" say NOT RUNNING.

My intent was purvey the SS as not loading but pse see Part Deux.

TNX for ur interest,

Not anyone here, but all of SETI@Home except the team rooms is publicly accessible for reading without a logon, and Q&A also allows posts without any SETI@Home credit (so that people can ask for assistance), so it is a magnet for both spambots that harvest e-mail addresses and spam posts for external sites.

K,

THANK-U for that info!

I assumed the whole site was "just us", however I can easily see public access is the "scientific" thing to communicate.
