I don't really understand... You're downloading projects through a website and not through BOINC and able to do the project?


I believe I've read that BOINC uses the same download method normally used for websites, on the same port, but then does something rather different with the files it downloads.

Does GPUGRID need a faster internet connection to make the new server effective?

Hello, I would like to know why since when I downloaded the GPUGrid program with the intention of helping, for more than 3 months I have never received any tasks to analyze on my computer?


You have an AMD card, this card is not supported under this project yet, in the mean time you can help other biological projects such as Folding@home and Malariacontrol.net. If you want to help the astrophysics community you can help SETI@home or Einstein@home.

Folding@home is currently moving to a new site:

https://foldingathome@stanford.edu

Malariacontrol.net appear to have gone inactive - it's been at least days since I could reach their site.

What graphics board do you have available for such tasks? GPUGRID now refuses to download for anything except rather recent Nvidia-based graphics boards, and not the slowest of those.

Have you told BOINC to enable downloaded GPU workunits? If so, CUDA type, OpenCL type, or both?

The server status page says that there is only one task ready to send.

Apparently it is not of a suitable type for my computer, since it wasn't sent here.

A minor point: I've had problems with both 375.86 and 375.95 over on PrimeGrid with their AP27 application using OpenCL. The screen often goes black and will not restart without a reboot. Problem not seen with 373.06.

Not enough evidence yet to tell if if it is a problem with the OpenCL part of the 375.* drivers, or with the AP27 application.

Using a 1.5 GB GT 440 under 64-bit Windows 10, since the motherboard makes it very difficult to find any more recent graphics board that will work during reboot.

Do the last two messages mean that GT 440 is no longer supported? Or does it only mean that GPUGRID considers the GT440 not worth mentioning?
8) Message boards : Wish list : A protein that might help stroke recovery (Message 44275)
Posted 102 days ago by Profile robertmiles
This article names a protein that might help recovery from strokes. Could someone at GPUGRID check if there has been enough work to determine the 3D structure of this protein?

Mouse Study Suggests Stem Cells May Reverse Stroke Damage
https://consumer.healthday.com/cardiovascular-health-information-20/misc-stroke-related-heart-news-360/mouse-study-suggests-stem-cells-may-reverse-stroke-damage-714075.html

This still needs tests to determine if it also works in humans.
Looks unlikely to help recover memories lost in strokes, but may recover the ability to form those memories.

Beyond, the 362.00 folder now appears there; it didn't under safe mode with command prompt.

skgiven, backups to what? My disk server no longer works, and backups to DVDs stopped working for me years ago. Setup Repair apparantly did the fix, but then told me that it had not been able to fix anything.

C:\Windows\System32\drivers contains many files, none of which have names that make them look likely to be Nvidia drivers.

Apparently, the program for creating restore points will create them only on the last drive you list as a place to put them, but the program for using restore points will ignore all those which aren't on the C: drive. So if you list more than one drive as places to put them, don't expect them to work.

Exception: The 368.22 driver does NOT work well under Windows Vista. If you install it there, expect many hours for which the computer won't even boot.
