I used to have the GPU doing work, but notice now that it does no BOINC work.

BOINC Manager in Advanced > Show All Tasks for all Projects I do: SETI, Milkyway@home and Asteroids@Home show the following (Sadly I cannot upload images here)

I cannot copy/paste from the Task list either - Such a nuisance.

So, in short:

GPU suspended - user request (0.149 CPUs + 1 NVIDIA GPU ......................(cuda50)

I had no trouble before with the GPU computing.

Advice would be useful.

As nobody has bothered to advise, I have just aborted all of the 165 (cuda50) waiting tasks
because it looks as if they will never actually process, until some settings are altered.

If someone is kind enough to assist with the problem, it would be appreciated.

The PC runs 24/7, never turned off except for reboot.

I have set the BOINC Manager Software here and on BOINC website to use the GPU.

BOINC Manager v7.46.36 (x64)- with WX Widgets Version 3.0.1 (Latest)

Evidently I am missing something, or that latest BOINC Manager upgrade has upset the
system somewhere.

Meanwhile, the GPU refuses to process any .............(cuda50) files

Kind regards from a far away land

Kerry, I would suggest creating a new posting in the Number Crunching thread over at Seti@home.
SETI has a very active user base - one (or more) users there will help you.
Copy and paste all the relevant info from your two post here in to your post there.

This suggests to me that you have stopped GPU computing yourself (clicked the icon in the taskbar and choosed 'sleep'). You only need to re-enable it....

Copy f

I have been advised of the answer from Tom*

I was advised to Right Click the Task Bar icon and untick "Snooze GPU"

The Task Bar BOINC does not have this facility.

But when I looked at the System Tray (Right hand side clock area of the monitor), and Rioght Clicked on the BOINC icon, there was facility there.

Untick "Snooze" also untick "Snooze GPU".

I had not seen that simple to fix.rom Private Message to me at SETI

Kind regards.
