I started running SETI@Home a couple of weeks ago.
The integrated video card has 256MB dedicated ram and reportedly has 8 CUDA cores.
Whenever BOINC attempts to run a job utilising the GPU it fails. The log for the job reports (partial log only):
too many boinc_temporary_exit()s</message>
aAcc_fft.cu' in line 21 : out of memory.

I have received BOINC messages advising the graphics driver needs to be updated but I have verified the latest is installed.
Is there some additional setting I need to make for these jobs to run or, alternatively, is there a way to prevent these tasks from being run?
Thanks for any words of wisdom.

Pretty sure the card has inadequate RAM. Believe the minimum is 1 GB. Also pre-Fermi is questionable.

Certainly very low on memory, (the limit may be 512MB, but certainly more than 256)
Equally what driver are you using?
