Yes, deleting the task and getting a new one seems to have worked.
However, the question is STILL unanswered.
John C MacAlister posted this same problem--issue, a couple of years ago... and HE never got a real answer either (not on the boards).

Thanks.

PS I have deleted the WU, and am trying to get another one (:
So, when I get the next WU I guess for now I just have to keep 'my fingers crossed' that the problem does not recur.

BTW, it is not, I don't believe, a matter of WUs interfering with each other.
Milkyway is using OpenCL.
When I suspend all Milkyway WUs, the same error still keeps coming up for GpuGrid
2016-12-20 4:53:19 PM | GPUGRID | task postponed 600.000000 sec: Waiting to acquire lock

In fact, when I suspend the Milkyway project, the same error still keeps coming up for GpuGrid

Other 'tidbits'
There seems to be no way to restart the task before the 10 min (600.0 sec) has lapsed.
This error always happens right at 30 sec into the task running, and
... each time I suspend other gpu tasks, WT_S3F1_C3-SDOERR_BNBS-0-4-RND3170_1 restarts from 0:00 time elapsed.

I keep getting a strange error, despite having been running GPU for a couple of years now.

...I did just recently update the drivers; however, Milkyway gpu WUs are running just fine.

WU e15s19_e14s24p1f286-GERARD_CXCL12_DIMPROTO3-0-1-RND3500_2 has been stuck at '85% "progress" ' for some 12 hours now.
I only have a 640, so WUs take 40-60 hours generally.
This task has already run for 69:58.
is this part of a defective batch?
How many more hours should I sacrifice for this WU?
I am presuming that if I abort it, there will be zero credit for these 70 hours (even if it is a flawed WU?)

I Run Win 7 on my HP-1120, i7-2600. (I am NOT going to 'upgrade' to Win 10 for months, until (I hope) MS gets all the garbage in Win8-10 patched up.)

Please advise.

Meanwhile I have paused it and am putting my GPU to better use.

Thanks.

Hello.
It does not seem that it would be in the least difficult to give a quick update on what research the WUs are addressing... nothing elaborate requested, nothing detailed in the least (at least, in the short term).

Would you please indicate on which general area (cancer... methods) the various WUs (GERARD_FXCXCL12_LIG ..., etc) are working?
This should take < 2 minutes - one quick post!

Thank you.

Hello, gdf .
Thank you for your post of 2015-04-24 8:50:29 AM

My donation HAS been received by the GPU net project.
I have notified my credit card (Discover) to reverse the charge reversal, that the charge amount did go to the intended purpose.

GPU grid may want to check with PAYPAL and the procedures they use to process payments of donations.
I followed up with paypal about the donation I had made (using gpugird.net links). While this charge had been on our credit card account balance for several weeks, Paypal was not able to locate the financial transaction on their end, despite trying to locate it in multiple ways.
So, now I see why my donation is not showing on my account: it seems that Paypal never got the moneys over to Universitat Pompeu Fabra. My credit card company (Discover card) was gracious enough to refund my money, even though they were not sure they would get the money back from Paypal.

Again, GPU grid may want to check about the procedures PAYPAL uses to process payments of donations.

List of Researchers, the identifying part of their recent WU names, and the type of research

Please update this posting. It is nearly a year dated. Many of us are very interested - I for one am - in the science and the research being done ... 'right under our noses' !
Thank you
