Where did you get the "starting points" from? Is it "Average result per Calendar day"?

Also, I keep having "Computation error" whenever a GPU-based task is downloaded and starts running and I'd like to fix that problem. My BOINC version is the latest .44 beta and my catalyst drivers are 13.2beta3, although I have tried 12.11beta11 and 13.1 in the past month (still had this error). I set up the WU configuration with the automatic tool provided on this website and made sure it matched the values of the example given there (to be sure i didnt make something wrong). Finally, what actually happens is that when the task is downloaded, its status goes to "running on 1CPU+0.25GPU" (initially I had 1CPU+0.125GPU) and half a second later I get "computation error". This even happens when I already have 8 tasks running on CPU. Any ideas?
I suggest you to completely uninstall Boinc, delete the hidden folder of Boinc in C:\ProgramData\. Then uninstall completely your graphic drivers using AMD Catalyst Un-install Utility and finally reinstall the latest BETA drivers and reinstall Boinc latest BETA.

BTW, I assume that your system specs are up to date and that you're using Windows 7 and not 8, since 8 needs 13.2 BETA 4. Do not use the Un-install Utility if you're using Windows 8 since it's not compatible.

EDIT 2:
My badge plz..:p
Sorry about that. I've added you to my list now :toast :eek:

Results are pulled from https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.org/stat/viewMemberInfo.do?userName=, except appending each member's username to the end of the URL. For example, my starting points were pulled from here.

Try going to the Event Log (Ctrl+Shift+E when BOINC is the active window) to see the messages it records. The multi-GPU think is still a bit flaky--you may need to delete the BOINC folder under C:\ProgramData and try again.

I setup 1 WU and it's getting valid results now. I think the multi WU thing doesn't play well with W8 and HD6000 series GPUs. :ohwell:

I setup 2 WUs and left the PC on while I was at work, came back and saw several failed results on the WCG stats page. I don't know if my card, drivers or Windows 8 are the culprit but it's doing fine now, got 16K overnight. HTPC clocking 61K ATM and going.

Sorry if this is answered somewhere else that I have not read yet but....

When I go here (https://secure.worldcommunitygrid.or...o.do?userName=xxxxx) it does not show any runtime or points or anything? I only started last night, but is this normal, does it take a long while to start showing runtime and points here?
Thanks

It does take a while to update on the website. From my experience, it does take while if this is the first time because your computer has to start returning some results first.

Well, I had it running for about 8 hours and got about 25K points from the HCC project. I think I'm running 4WU's on my 7850 and 2WU's on my CPU. I'll keep it running when I'm not using the computer.

Yes, it will take a little while. Work units take anywhere from a few minutes to a few days to validate, depending on how long it takes the other person to return them :)

I have a question about the type of tasks BOINC fetches.

I'm not getting anymore "Help Conquer Cancer" jobs.

Is this normal?

They probably just ran out of work units because we're all crunching

If you go to the Event Log (in BOINC, hit Ctrl+Shift+E) what does it tell you? It should give a reason for why no more work is sent. I'm still getting HCC work on my systems, so I'm not sure what's happening for you.

Do you think that one task is blocking the rest?

If I reset the project, will it be just that one task or all tasks running?

If you reset the project, it throws away all of the work that you have downloaded and fetches everything again. Not ideal, but you may wish to do so anyways.

Ah I get it now. I had some tasks suspended (too many). I resumed them and now I got new WUs...

Another newb question. What happens if I choose to abort a number of tasks?
The WCG techs don't like it, and it will count it as your computer reporting errors, thus lowering your quota.

Are some WUs more desirable than others?

My question being, are all WUs of equal value?

I'd like to figure out how to best redistribute the work load. :D

Your focus should (if at all possible) be on the GPU work. Even a relatively slow GPU is faster than all but the fastest of CPUs. Otherwise, all CPU projects have relatively the same point weight. The CEP2 WUs take an extraordinarily long time (some close to 12 hours) but they're worth more points, so it all evens out in the end.

OK so I'll have 2 cpus working with gpus and 2 cpus working alone and see what that produces.
