Cannot get GeForce 9600 GT to fold

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Here are additional instructions if you need them

Step 1: Start up a command prompt (start -> run -> cmd OR Win key+R -> type cmd OR Windows 7 users can browse to the directory and Shift+Right Click -> "Open command window here")

Step 2: Change to the directory where the memtest executable is located

Step 3: Type this:
memtestG80 128 1000

Step 4: The first value is the value of GPU RAM to be used while the second value is the number of times the test will run.

NOTE - If errors occurs and the value is 4 Billion (Exact number is: 4,294,967,284), then it is a time out so ensure that you are running the latest version. If this occurs even with the latest version, please contact ihaque who is a Member of Pande Group and the developer of this application.

Ok, Got it to run 1000 steps but it did not upload the result but that is OK because it allowed me to see that no errors appeared.
I will be asking for advice about a new GPU if and when I need to have this computer repaired or updated.

Thanks very much for your time and efforts but it appears that my GPU is not going to fold.

I was sure I replied yesterday but for some reason two attempts did not get yesterday's reply to show. Sorry about that.

Why did it not upload? Please post the log showing the failure.

7im - I think rfharbin means the result of MemtestG80 (with 1000 loops) - see the post of PantherX before

The results of memtestg80 cannot be uploaded because memtestg80 was once part of a scientific F@h paper that was surveying the error rates in various GPUs on the F@h network. The paper was completed and published, and the author moved on, but his program is still used.

Bottom line, there's no need to try to upload memtestg80's results.
