I've heard of one trick that can help if the card is not loaded at 100% and that is to start Firefox while it's running.

Tried the FireFox thing and it showed a little activity but is still not starting up.

What is the standalone client? Have a link? I have the latest drivers installed. (270.61)
Not from my own expeience, but I've heard bad things about the 270.xx drivers and I've heard good things (+5% PPD) with the beta 275.xx drivers. The 68xx's seem to be problematic.

Click on the one that says "Windows XP/2003/Vista/7 GPU3 (required for Fermi) no-nonsense console client. V6.41"

Second one from the top.

As far as drivers, I had to dump v.270.61 yesterday because it was causing my 2 GTX460's to drop to 2D clocks while folding. They are fine now with v.266.58.

I find v2 to be more responsive on my end. Many times v7 takes an inordinate amount of time to settle down and generate some figures for me.

1.)We're old.
2.)We're stuck in our ways.
3.)If it's not broke, don't fix it.
4.)It doesn't work with HFM.net.
5.)Can't pause individual clients with V7.
6.)I actually know how to use DOS. cd\\
:D
But, I think V7 is the way to go for new Folders.

Will it increase my PPD, compared to running Tracker ? Has anyone checked yet ?

If not, I dont see the point in changing to something new.It only takes me 2 min to set-up Tracker on a new rig, and it runs without any trouble on all my machines.

Also the fact that HFM doesn't yet support v7 is a big minus.With HFM running in my dock, I can tell with a quick mouse flick, if all my clients are running and what PPD I am getting.

So really, I am just old and set in my ways too :D

It doesn't do -bigadv yet and I like HFM.net as a tool to see that all the crunchers are operating as they should.

so really your saying your only in it for the points and not the science:shadedshu

eventually you'll have to go to V7 as that's going to be the default app and you wont be able to use the older console clients

as for HFM.net they are working on getting compatibility with V7

also the more people who use V7 now while in beta form help get the bugs/perfomance issues ironed out quicker not that there's many to iron out

V7 does so do bigadv if your CPU has 8 cores or 4C/8T this is what bigadv were supposed to be done on and now F@H are just enforcing that rule with V7 it also has HFM like ability to show you what where and how much you GPU's/CPU's are doing

I think what he was trying to say was will he lose any ppd (speed of computation) vs the other client.

Really....and where the hell did I say I was just " in it for the points " :shadedshu....more PPD would mean that it is more efficient than the older clients and so therefore gets more work done (so more science done ).

It's not like Play Your Cards Right where "points make prizes" :laugh:. I dont think I would have been folding this long if it was just for the points

eventually you'll have to go to V7 as that's going to be the default app and you wont be able to use the older console clients

I am still waiting on HFM to upgrade to v7, and then I will think of changing to the newer client.

And yes I'm 42:p
No proof of folding??:wtf: I'm not folding for TPU atm but was going to.
I actually tried V7 and couldn't get it to run bigadv but I'll have to try again when it supports HFM.:)

I want to switch my SR-2 rigs over to Linux but I've never used it so I need some advice and help.
