    Only 413 points today, running 2 i7's and a Q6600. WTF. Power must have went out at home or something. Dammit, and my office is too far away to go home and check on it. :banghead::banghead:

    I feel your pain there, I've come home numerous times and find all my rigs restarted (Windows auto update:banghead:) and/or completely shutdown because the stupid CB tripped again. I really need to upgrade that circuit to a 20A one.

    That's why serious crunchers install as service.Even if it's sitting at the log in screen it's still crunching away.

    Yepper, RAMMIE is correct. I have all of my machines installed as a service. Also, once you've installed as a service set the service to restart after fail. Leave the minutes to restart at 0 to restart as soon as it fails.

    Excellent!
    For those that don't know how.
    navigate to services through Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services
    or from RUN =services.msc

    Go to the properties of the BOINC service and then the Recovery tab.

    OK, I went to Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services, and I can't find Boinc on the list...

    LOL. Brain dead today. I'll reinstall tonight as a service. I think the installer gives you the option at install, correct?

    Remember, to change the service login to a user with administrative rights. By doing this you will prevent the "No work error" to occur.

    Yeah, I forgot about that....I'll reinstall tonight. The boinc manager is not reliable. I'm constantly having to update/reset.

    In Boinc versions 6.0 and above it's called Protected Mode instead of service install.

    How do I know if it's working or not. It says I'm getting less points with my X3 and Semperon running, yet when I was running just my X3 I was getting almost double.

    [​IMG]

    The time in May was just my X3, and the newest one is my X3 and a 2ghz semperon.

    If you just started it will take a week until you start seeing your average.The work you do also has to be done by another person and returned before you get the points.

    thanks, today is crappy, not even 1k points yet. Guess i'm seeing the effects of both rigs going down yesterday. My i7 had restarted over night. found it in the log in screen this morning :(. Dont know why. I just juiced it up slightly as far as QPI, DRAM, IOH, etc. Not CPU, I know it has enough.

    thanks and welcome aboard :toast:

    very good, at 4GHz I used to get about 4400K a day. hit 5k one day, but have no idea why, never did it again.

    If I install as a service, can I still control the percentage of CPU usage? If so, how?
