ECS GTS 250 UNSTABLE_MACHINE not overclocked

Postby ndimario » Mon Mar 12, 2012 4:37 am

I've seen a few of these threads suggesting various things that don't apply to my situation. A similar thread, someone had the same issue without solution.

Problem: The client folds one complete WorkUnit and then refuses to complete another. It always succeeds once, then fails the rest.

Testing

Memory: Memtest86 two full passes without errors/warnings

GPU: FurMark stress test ran up to 91c (when folding it doesn't go above 74c) for 16mins, no instability, temperatures dropped back to 89c after a while.
GPU has never been overclocked, running with stock settings. The card is about 3 years old.
Note: I'm aware that some people do not like furmark because it stresses a card unusually hard, but it handled that well without instability

Motherboard: About 2 years old, not heavily used and seems to be fully working.

CPU: Athlon II x3 2.9Ghz. Overclocked for the first two years, stock speeds the last year.

Driver: I did a full uninstall of the default supplied by windows 7. Restarted, then installed newest available driver from nvidia website. Correct driver is selected and installed.

The computer runs perfectly fine. The only time it shows problems is when GPU folding. I have SMP folding currently active and its not encountering problems.
There is a possibility that the GPU has gone bad because its a few years old, but it survived FurMark. I am studying to be a computer specialist, but this has me somewhat puzzled. I don't have any guesses, this is strictly a problem with the GPU and folding, otherwise everything appears to be fine.

System Information:
Athlon II x3 2.9ghz
ECS GTS 250 512mb
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
GPU2 Console client (newest, downloaded today)

There is a break at about 7% because I hit pause. It would have run a full 1-100% uninterrupted otherwise. I can't really make sense of the log after that.

I've noticed that theres a lot of changes in the log itself. I've been changing the settings a lot during midfold at the beginning. Just to make sure, I've deleted the cache and work folder and started over fresh. Though this wouldn't explain why it worked the first time only and failed the rest.

Problem: The client folds one complete WorkUnit and then refuses to complete another. It always succeeds once, then fails the rest.


That sounds like the power-savings-driver-problem. Change your power savings mode from "turn off the monitor" to "always on" and then either use the "black screen" screensaver or simply turn off the monitor with the power switch when you're not using it. (The current theory is that this is a bug in the 64-bit GPU drivers.)

I've just put that theory to the test, it does sound like it could fit. I've had it set to turn the monitors power off after an hour, if there is a bug, that would fold about one unit. Here's hoping ;)

Thank you Bruce, it appears that you are correct. After making it so the screen never turns off (in power management), the GPU units now fold smoothly. As of this post, its completed 2 WU's back to back and is part way through the third. Before this problem was solved, it would never go past 1 WU complete. Thank you again :)
