For your NVS 300 I would use an older driver like this one. I have always had better luck using older drivers on older hardware.

Thank you! I've been running for about a week with the GPU enabled. No more crashes!

I recently installed an NVS 300. Started getting blue screen "can not reset display driver".

Anyone else having problems with this GPU?

I've changed settings to not use the GPU.

Running on 64 bit Windows 7.

Boinc version 7.6.22
341.95 NVS 300 driver

A few years ago I had 11 motherboards running S@H. This was with Pentium 200 processors. I was able to run several boards from one power supply. I doubt that this would work very well with modern MPU's. They take a lot more current. I found that the limiting factor on how many boards I could connect to one ps was the voltage drop in the wiring harness. I needed longer & longer wiring to reach each motherboard as more were added. With the high currents and low voltages involved you will quickly go below the minimum voltage on the 5V supply. You should measure all power supply voltages at the motherboard power connector & make sure they are within tolerance. You will also need to measure the current draw to make sure that you don't exceed the ps rating. A low resistance shunt will be needed to measure current. A standard multimeter has to much voltage drop to be used.
