    Installed new Nvidia Beta 295.51 earlier today. Was folding Ok. Came home and GPU WU failed.

    V7.1.43: was using beta 290.53

    Is it the driver and can someone help me diagnose the problem?

    I can post or pm the log file.

    Thanks.

    ^^^ You should almost never use a beta driver for Folding. This does not mean that the driver is the fault though. You have to see if a pattern develops.

    Thanks for speedy reply. This error was on my everyday user.

    Letting SMP Finish then will shut down and retry. The 290 was working well.

    Wanted to post to see if others were experiencing same/similar issue with 295.

    You'll find that people here are very slow to upgrade drivers unless someone says that the new driver gains anything over 0.001% PPD :D. Also, the best place to check about a new driver is http://foldingforum.org/ (I didn't find anything)

    My take is that 295 Beta does not work. 3 failed attemps. Tried removing 3D driver package.

    Going back to 290.

    Thanks for the help.


    Update: Back to 290. Everything OK.

    I did keep the new PysX and HDMI packages from 295.

    Actually the V7 client is only folding on one of the X2's gpu's...I couldn't get it to use the second GPU on the card. I have removed one of the 4870x2 to help simplify the issue but again I am unable to get it to fold on both GPU's on one 4870x2.

    Thank you for testing it :). I'm still on 266.58. No need to experiment with something that works.

    didnt realise this ,im on cat 12.2 preview but i do watch and monitor my clients, i can safely say alls well at least for now,

    :Dgot an ek full cover wb coming for my 5850 im hopein itll get to 1000 so i can equally spank them both :) 24/7

    tried a little experiment last few days i set 5850 at 800 1000 and 5870 at 930 1200 , then folded 24hrs in xfire then not crossfired both get 89-9600ppd on x16s(xfired) ,if i un crossfire them i get 9650ppd for the 5870 and 5650ppd for the 5850 obv back xfired perm even at odd clocks they are doin more ppd on average then when i have(as normal) synced their clocks to 850-888 wherein they both avg about 8600ppd

    ATI folders you can get a nice increase in PPD by doing the CCC 2D profile edit! I changed my 2d clocks and voltages to my 3D clocks and voltages now folding at 750/900 instead of 507/500 .

    http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117633

    Now if only I could get the other GPU on the card to fold too.

    Is anyone using the -advmethods flag with GPU3? Is it netting any better PPD for the GPU/CPU combo?

    Has anyone been able to get both GPU3 and GPU2 to work together on the V7 Client? GTX460 and 8800GT.

    I just read over at the folding forum that the 12.2 preview drivers for ATI are able to fold...I have not tested and don't even have a download link yet for the 12.2 drivers but I will investigate when I get home from work!

    hi , ive been using them drivers a few weeks with V7.1.43 and alls well , not any better per say then earlier drivers, but they do work and i dont think ive had any issues,(hard to tell ive been tweeking a lot and have seen Bsod's but they were my fault) :toast:

    im now getting a nice 9300ppd out of both my 5800s now thanks to the new Ek waterblock on the 5850 ,and my clocks are both 1Ghz folding:D , i did think it would improve my ppd a bit more, but ah well ill quell my mind with thoughts of longevity, games run well now tho too;), though i dont use it for that much:eek:

    I know if I don't put "advanced" into the GPU's extra slot settings for both cards one will get Core_16 WU's and the other will get core_11 WU's but that's for 2 x HD5770's but I don't see why it shouldn't do the same thing for you

    NEW BETA V7.1.48 released today February 16.


    Stopping process mid stream and updating caused WU failure. (not so with past beta updates)

    Did a complete uninstall and reinstall. (deleted all data)

    Seems to be working OK now.

    Appears to be wrong. Sometimes these things self adjust. Have you updated anything recently, ie graphics drivers or Folding program?

    Try to restart it. Do you have a passkey? If not you will only get the 106.6 base points. 8 treads @ 4 GHz should do a 8011 in the less then 1 min per frame.

    New Nvidia WHQL Driver Package 295.73 has caused 2 machine failures, GPU.

    I am removing 3D Driver packages and going to try again.

    Will report back and edit post.

    EDIT

    Removing 3D package did not work.

    I am going to try and go back to previous Folding Beta and try new driver.

    EDIT

    Trying new combination of Folding Beta 7.1.43 and 295.73(complete package)

    EDIT

    Worked briefly then failed.

    Now trying 7.1.43 and 290.53

    GTX460 running hotter with new WUs; 60-65c was normal, now running 75c.

    EDIT

    Now working with 7.1.48 and 290.53.

    Increased heat with new WUs per F@H Forum.

    Had to increase GPU fan speed dramatically to keep up.
