Ok so i have both folding and crunching running on my laptop and it works fine.

My desktop however, im trying to get two (eventually 3) folding clients running: two geforce 8800gs and one 8800gts plus wcg. I have wcg and one 8800gts folding/crunching both at 100%. It works fine, but I get a bluescreen if I try to bring up the viewer (i know the viewer doesnt do anything good, but before i had installed F@Hmon I had just wanted to make sure it was working, and now its bothering me)

Also, when i try to run 2 gpu clients, they seem to fold just fine but when i try to do anything else with the computer it bogs down, sits stuck for a couple minutes, then sometimes works and sometimes blue screens. Also every once in awhile when i try to start the second client it tells me its already running, then gets stuck. I followed the tutorial for how to set up 2 clients here on the site to the letter.

The only thing I can think is there's something wrong with the drivers. (as blue-screen normally means driver problems). I had the latest drivers installed. Maybe do i need to do the driver cleaner and reinstall? Also I assume I dont need two different drivers for 8800gts and 8800gs? They're both recognized fine by windows. The only thing I can think is to uninstall/clean/reinstall the drivers. Anyone see anything I'm missing?

You are running the system tray client, right? You need to uninstall and switch to the console client. No viewer or fancy renderings, just flat-out folding production. I always had crashes using the viewer. Let me know if you have trouble switching and I can walk you through it.

This is the same exact thing I was experiencing and since you're folding on my old 96shader cards, try not to crunch past 70% and see if it changes anything.

NOOO! 100%! NO LESS! lol, yea i think that may have something to do with it, since im running wcg too, and ive read some people have problems running both at 100%. I'm installing vista64 tomorrow though, so that will get rid of the driver variable, plus i'll install the console client instead and see if that works it out. Less than 100% is last ditch effort, but I guess if that's what has to be done then its better than nothing. :mad:
Thanks everyone!
