Your Client at least still reports to have 295.73.

According to our scheduler logs:

Until 2012-05-11 06:55:39 your client reported driver version supplied: 296.10
From 2012-05-11 07:41:02 on your client reported driver version supplied: 295.73

Neither of these will get you CUDA tasks on Einstein@Home. Downgrade to 290.53 or upgrade to 301.xx.

Ok I will try it.

While the 680 folks seem to

While the 680 folks seem to have a private release from NVIDIA upgraded enough to work on Einstein, it is not listed as supporting non-600 series GPUs. On the contrary, the autodetect function just now offered to supply my GTX 460 with 296.1 to replace the 285.62 I'm running. Of course I declined.

It appears that we still have to wait, so far as production release drivers for most of the NVIDIA cards in service here. If someone knows I've got this wrong, please correct me.

I got an exemption fault because of BOINC. My Linux-VM4 crashed. Now I have to go through the whole procedure to connect to T4T again, all on the command line. :(

I'm really sick of it! On Linux the einsteinbinary_BRP4 tasks run faster anyway.

All I can do is detach and reattach to the the project again. But first I will finish the 4 WU's. Ever they take longer on Win 7 64bit.

I meanwhile allowed work again from Albert@home and I got 7 CUDA tasks!

You have to go the left side

You have to go the left side of the screen and select beta and legacy drivers.

I see people having trouble.

I see people having trouble. I'M running E@home and S@home. Makes me wonder why my computer is just cranking away with no problems. I never have any problems running other programs. Is mine a plowhorse? HP quad core with 3 meg of ram.
Oh, and I grabbed a gadget that shows my cpu usage. I set my cpu usage at 80% and my fans don't run.
When my vscan runs,(Microsoft Security essentials) it suspends the tasks. As soon as it's finished they go back to running.
Not a geek.

Looks like it is working now, right? I see all of your NVIDIA-equipped hosts get CUDA tasks.
