... while my middle performance machine will not restart, it is giving Incorrect (invalid?) licence as an error. Not being a Linux guru I am unable to restore from that...

That sounds very strange... There are no 'Linux' licenses to stop you booting...

Is that machine an ex-Windows machine and you are inadvertently trying to boot into a Windows bootup?


.. Yes but with fiddling I could get the Linux boot menu and select the correct version to boot but still got that message.

Or is there some BIOS/EFI silliness and confusion?


. . That is a possibility but I cannot check that now ...

Or is there some proprietary RAID being used that is dongled by some license?


. . Nope no RAID in use.

Or is the motherboard battery flat and you have a totally scrambled set of BIOS/EFI settings?


. . As before ... cannot confirm nor deny that.

Or... Any further clues as to when you get the message and the exact wording?...


. . No longer possible.

Clean out the dust??


. . This was something I considered so I opened the case and removed the GPU to see if there was any build up of dust since I last cleaned the fans. They were still clean so I decided the case fans (harder to get to) must be clean too. I put it back together and now I get no display at all, the LEDs indicate it is booting off the other drive but with no display I cannot confirm success or even get into BIOS setup (well I can't tell if it is or isn't). It is a low profile SFF case and I have no other low profile GPUs to try it with :(. A steep and slippery slope ...

Had simllar issues years ago with a couple of Windows machines. It was a devil to diagnose so went back to basics.
Stripped it down, thoroughly cleaned it, popped in a new CMOS battery & blew the dust of the pci slot. Then got a pencil with an eraser on the end & cleaned the gpu contacts. Still no joy but I was fortunate in that I had a small gpu with a full case bracket in another rig. Having kept everything with building rigs, I replaced it with a small bracket & up & running. With the second one, even that failed so felt the M/B gpu slot failed (had that happen many times on Asus boards).
Kept the M/B & on getting another small sized gpu retested. Gpu slot had failed & with no onboard graphics, ended up building a new rig...eventually.

I too have had failed or burnt out PCIE slots on ASUS boards. MSI also. Twice on ASUS and once on MSI. Move the card to a different slot if one is available and try again. Basic troubleshooting, reduce to minimal components and then build back up testing on each iteration.

Announced that SCC has an estimated backlog of 2-3 days worth of tasks & once done, will pause. So no Emerald on 3rd Dec, approx. 64 days run time short. :-(
Oh well, will just have to wait for a new batch. Will go for Sapphire on Open Pandemics.

. . Sadly this SFF machine has only the one PCIe slot :( If that is gone then it is a boat anchor because the GPU is the only reason I keep this machine running {it is old Core2Duo rig}. I might try the 1050ti in another machine to see if it is still good, at least it would be a step up from the 950 in that machine ...

I had a Gigabyte motherboard with a GTX 670 on it, c. 2012. A month after the warranty expired, the card failed - there's a small visible scorch patch on the solder side of the card's circuit board. After that happened, I could never get that PCIe slot to work again - the machine limped on with a single full-length working slot until earlier this year, when I ripped the guts out and replaced it with a Linux build.

. . Nothing lives forever but the worst enemy of electronics is heat, and I think we {in Oz} are in for a stinker of a summer, already hitting mid 40s (C) in here and it's only spring. So I am shutting down all but the coolest running card that seems to just plod along even on the stinking hot days, before I lose any more. Maybe if/when SETI needs volunteers again I will still have some hardware to throw back into the search ...

Apologies to team members, haven't stopped crunching, just reduced to the dual core. Had a HD failure (C drive on the 8 core). With a replacement received, waited for all tasks to complete before upgrading.
Experienced issues with image & then cloning yesterday but "hopefully" will be back fully crunching later this evening.

I normally upgrade C drives every 5 years or so. Must have forgot on the one upgraded (Feb 09)
Finally replaced my D-link nas box & surprised to see that one of the drives was 25/9/00.
20 years & still in use. :-)

Back, a little earlier than advertised. :-)
Just one little hiccup. Macrium rescue disk couldn't see usb external drives, but easily resolved.

Riccardo Muti conducted the New Year Concert in Vienna with the Wiener Philarmoniker to an empty hall. Nobody was there to clap their hands during the Radetzky March by Johan Strauss Senior as it was a customary play by the audience

World Community Grid says that the security review of GPU tasks in the OpenPandemics project has been completed. Now that GPUGRID is lacking work, my GTX 1060 on this PC is waiting for them.

Thanks for the heads-up. Just joined, waiting for the action to start.

One small addition to the instructions for GPUs:

There is a change to the website to allow work on each GPU vendor. For this, volunteers will need to go to Settings->Device Manager->Device Profiles. From there, select each device profile you wish to run GPU work on and scroll down to the Graphics Card Usage section. In that section you can select which type of cards you want to allow to run between ATI/NVIDIA/Intel.
I couldn't find that at first. The GPU settings are only visible after you have selected that the device profile is a "Custom Profile". After that, carry on as before...

I've submitted a note to the Beta test forum, but (probably because I'm a new user), they've held it back for moderator scrutiny.
