Hey everyone, thanks for looking. My two other computers are getting GPU work. But my third is not. Logs show the GPUs are found. Drivers are up to date from manufacturer.

Here's a link to the computer: https://setiathome.berkeley.edu/show_host_detail.php?hostid=8452493

Heres' my log. I view this computer via Remote Desktop, but I saw in previous threads that it should pick up GPU tasks once I log out. Anyone have any idea why i'm not seeing any GPU tasks? Been like this for days.

I'm not certain that (windows) RDP doesn't actually "kill" the installed drivers rather than just put them to sleep :-(
Many people have found that using one of the other (free) remote desktops allows the use of the GPUs on remote computers - I use the free version of "VNC Viewer" to look after a mixture of Linux & Windows boxes after suffering much the same problems as you are.

Thanks! I set the computer to auto login and then restarted and did not connect via RDP and it is now using GPU. Guess i'll need to try another one of those RDP applications.
