GPU not recognized as a slot

Postby Nicokalo » Tue Apr 21, 2020 9:13 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm new here, and I already now that there is right now some troubles with the GPU work force.
But I'm wondering if my own GPU problem is related to that or not.

In FAH I try to setup my GPU as a slot (it's an nVidia 1070 TI by the way), I set it up to -1 as recommanded, but when I save to close the window, the GPU slots desapears.
It's no longer here, and it keeps doing it everytime I try to put it back.

Do you have any idea what's going on ?
Thanks !
Best regards
Nicolas

Hi Nicolas and welcome to the forum.

Is this Windows, OS X, or Linux? Do you have the latest AMD drivers installed?

Please note that if you're using the latest client 7.6.9, there's a manual workaround to add your GPU assuming that you have the Nvidia drivers installed (not the ones from the Windows Updates but the ones from the Nvidia site https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us#)

Manually download the GPUs.txt file from here: https://apps.foldingathome.org/GPUs.txt (right-click save as GPUs.txt)
Exit the client
Copy the GPUs.txt file from the Downloads folder to %AppData%\FAHClient
Reboot your system
Start up the client and ensure that you can see your GPU in the log file
Add a GPU slot from FAHControl -> Configure -> Slots tab -> Add -> GPU -> OK -> Save

If you need additional help, you can post the log file and the guidance, if required, can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=24&t=26036
