The client is supposed to download a file called GPUs.txt on it's first contact with the internet. A bug in FAHClient v7.6.9 causes it to skip this step. It may be downloaded later or you can download it manually. The Windows client often configures a setting GPU=FALSE which must be removed. (The Linux client is different and I'm not sure about OS_X.) After completing those two steps, restarting the client should take care of it.

Windows 10 is probably not the problem, but there is an issue with GPU slots when using version 7.6.9 of the client software. It can usually be solved this way:

PantherX wrote: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 that doesn't help please post your log: viewtopic.php?p=327412&f=24#p327412
