Gentlemen, I know your time is valuable; I just wanted to ask a quick question with respect to my main rig, 2 Geforce GTX 980.

I was previously running, two GTX 770, however, I upgraded to the 980 in December 2014. At the moment I still can not get any work off the server, it keeps saying no work available to process?

Thoughts?

First things first. Did you do a clean install of the drivers? When replacing one card type with another, and even more so when replacing two cards at once, a clean uninstall of the old drivers is necessary (even if you re-install the same driver type). I would suggest Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU), which will reboot your machine into Safe Mode and do a thorough uninstall. Then reinstall the new drivers; I am doing fine with 352.86 on several GTX 750 Tis, though any recent one should do.

Then, if you don't get more work, I would suggest a total uninstall of BOINC, and re-install the latest version (7.6.2). Of course, you should NOT install in "service" mode, in order to get GPU work.

If you posted the BOINC log (BOINC\stdoutdae.txt) it would also help. The part where BOINC starts up will suffice.

Hi Tony,

I see your host downloaded two tasks, but their status says they are "abandoned".
Are you using an account manager for BOINC?
If not:
I suggest you to detach your host from GPUGrid, reinstall BOINC (NOT in protected application execution mode), then attach your host again to GPUGrid.
This is just an addition to the previous advice by Jim. (However I don't suggest to upgrade to 7.6.2 as this version is still under testing)
