The most recent drivers from NVidia are causing problems with our CUDA application. So for the time being we don't ship any such tasks to machines with drivers version newer than 290.53.

[Update Windows NVIDIA drivers to 301.34!] Not shipping Windows

For the records, the latest beta drivers for NVIVIA fixed the problem:

http://einsteinathome.org/node/196188&nowrap=true#116733, so work is distributed now also to 301.00 and newer driver hosts. Note that the Windows hosts with divers newer than 290.53 and older than 301.00 will still be blocked from getting CUDA tasks, as the problem is in the driver itself.

Update: New Windows WHQL

Update:

New Windows WHQL (certified) drivers are now available for all NVIDIA graphics card models:

We strongly recommend all NVIDIA GPU users who use their GPUs to support Einstein@Home to update to the latest version 301.42. This version fixes the bug mentioned above and will ensure that your GPU will keep getting task from Einstein@Home.
