I have the prog running and each time in the past if i clicked on the visual part it would show the atoms binding. This time it shows nothing moving and the same atom model, no matter how long the prog is running. Can someone please help me out. i have an intel 920 and a nvidia gtx 285. Thanks

if you are trying to run the viewer from the GPU client this applies.
7) The Viewer that is present in the Systray Version is known to be buggy/resource hog. You don't have to run the viewer for the Client to fold and it isn't used to monitor the Client. To monitor the Client, please visit the tools list and download an appropriate application.


otherwise, i'm not sure. have you done any upgrades lately? drivers/hardware/client?

Core is not running can be a number of things.

If you in the same install did see the core engaged ( being buggy does not mean it doesn't work at all ), you might have a client which isn't running due to not being able to get work, or a client which had to many EUE's and is now in a 24h pause.

You can see this by opening the log file and reading the last few lines of it. If it's running it will show something like:

[07:54:37] Completed 48%

If the last few lines do not have anything resembling the above, it will most likely have something like this >

thanks for the replay, yeah it shows me progress but i dont see visuals like in the past or like ps3 people get (i did notice that the model adjusts every 2 secs or so). I also just discovered that i can change the model and see it in stick form and ati version (even though i have nvidia) I have a i7 920 and a gtx 285 sli (though had to remove the sli lately cuz of heat). The MOBO manufacturers are retards they stack these 2 huge GPUs next to one another then as far a apart as possible and it makes my GPUs overheat (not OC at all). i have an asus p6t. the prob is that the farthest slot is slower , i forgot 10x not 16x and only the 2 side by side are 16x.

Lastly, I noticed that for 2 times in a row it had me doing an altzhimers(prob misspelled) dont get why when it takes so much time to do each and now the last process is the generic "test protein A". is there any way to actually set the settings so u are actually doing useful work?

Thanks again for the help.

Welcome to the foldingforum, sebastian869

Recently there has been a lot of development work going on to provide support for Fermi hardware an work leading toward the availability of a FahCore that uses OpenCL. When new software is being developed, test proteins ARE useful work. Anyway, I'm seeing new projects announced regularly though I don't pay much attention to whether they're for G80 or for Fermi so I don't know which ones will be distributed to your hardware. See the later posts in this topic: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=14714

You may want to upgrade your client to the latest version and/or add the -advmethods flag. Either one might change the WUs that you're getting but it might not. Those choices may also increase the chances of getting unstable assignments.

The choices of which projects are available depends on what the scientists feel is important at the time and you really don't get to choose.
