    The Environmental Variables used are for the GPU, not the CPU. Try 'em, you'll like 'em.

    Quick question, is there any way to disable the second monitor when folding on 2 GPUs? Occasionally I loose my mouse in the second screen and I can't snap to the right corner in Win7. Nothing major, just wanted to see if anything could be done.

    The second monitor is actually the second input on my main LCD.

    i wondered that myself and never found anything.maybe someone else found something.but at my time of using 2gpus to fold no..
    Well there is a way that works sometime. Enable SLI if you can and they *should* fold like that. But that was kinda iffy for me.(it worked sometimes and other times not)

    I tried enabling SLI and doing it that way. No go, although that might just be my cards not playing nice together :laugh: With 2 GTX 275s and the 8800GTS all in the rid folding works fine in SLI mode, with just the 2 275s not to much :roll:

    Both of my GTX 400 cards were doing this for most of the afternoon but they finally found something to do. I'd say this is a sign the scientists are off playing golf and not keeping up with making enough WUs to keep us happy.

    Hm, now I'm getting it on my 8800GTS. My 9600GSO is 60% into the work unit it's currently on, I'll check that one when it finishes. Maybe we've crunched every work unit, heh

    Ever wonder if those who run F@H went to the same project management school as Phil Jones?

    I'm betting he's referring to Phil Jones, the scientist at the center of the Climategate scandal.

    My personal best on SMP2-A3 was 74 times, trying to get a WU. That was after the reinstall of the client. It's good when it works, but on the other hand WTF.(Way To Fold:laugh:)

    Dammit, still no work. How do you uninstall F@H, I don't see it as a program??? Want to make sure I completely uninstall it and then install it again.

    That's odd, my system picked up shortly after I said it was stuck. The GPU client doesn't show up in the add/remove programs list cause it doesn't actually get installed... it's just extracted from a zip file.

    You shouldn't have to reinstall anything actually, just to to your FAH GPU folder and delete everything but the FAH exe and the .dll files.
