I have a new pc with 2 RTX2070 supers no GPU recognized.
I see the message is a couple of places.
Also, I seem to have no local config file cc_config on my PC.
I have re-installed the drivers and the boinc app many multiple times.
I have both the very latest driver for the GPUs and the latest version of boinc.
Not sure what to do next to resolve this.
What's my next step?

You got the drivers from Nvidia and not from Microsoft? Also told Windows not to update drivers automatically?
And you installed BOINC as a user install, not as a service?

Otherwise just post the first 40 or so lines from the event log (CTRL+SHIFT+E).
cc_config.xml isn't made until you either make one by hand, or add some debug flags via the Event Log options menu, or add some exclusive applications via its menu.

OK,
I had done all of what you had suggested ( manually downloaded and installed NVIDIA drivers ) no windows drivers used
but in an earlier attempt, I had used the service install option -it was retaining that.
Removed and reinstalled BOINC and removed that option... like magic, it sees my GPUs.
Thank you so very much for the suggestions.,
