My computer will not get new tasks. Does anyone have an idea as to what I can do to get my computer working tasks again?

The quickest way will be if you can post the first 50 or so lines from the Boinc event log after a restart

In case you don't know the event log is here in "Advanced View"



Once it displays just click the "Copy all" button"



And paste the result here.

The client is trying to report tasks with errors.

Try setting NNT (No New Tasks) first, and not push to hard either, meaning only once, and next press upload or report.

Remember to turn the feature back on when finished.

You have 200 tasks in your cache, but likely you have trashed all 100 of your gpu tasks because your host shows no graphics co-processor which the i5-2500 has. You tried to run with an Intel OpenCL driver but I suspect it is way too old. Or you let Microsoft update your video driver and it installed a non-compatible version which it almost always tries to do. Try updating your video driver to the latest one with a direct from Intel download. Don't use the graphics driver supplied by Microsoft. You won't ask for any more work until you have validated some work to clear out all the errors. You have 3 cpu tasks pending validation. When one of them validates, it should let your client ask for more work. But you really need to fix the graphics driver problem first.
