Re: System Hangs... unsure why? Old and New client

It may be a bit too soon to really tell, but I think updating to latest BIOS solved my issue.

Re: System Hangs... unsure why? Old and New client

Alright guys, so the machine froze earlier today exactly as it does when running F@H, except that it wasnt running F@H when it did it. In fact, it wasnt doing anything at all. Pretty sure I clicked to open Firefox and it bit dirt. So clearly, it's not the F@H client. Back to square one. I updated th...

Re: System Hangs... unsure why? Old and New client

Which version of the drivers are you using? There were reports of some recent versions having problems if F@h was running and some other software would also be using the GPU. That bug is supposed to be fixed in the most recent release(s). 20.2.2 Maybe disable the hardware acceleration of the browse...

No. Stock.
In fact, when I'm folding, I set "Power limit" slider in Radeon Software to the minimum, or -50. This way the card can fold all day happily at 64°.

System Hangs... unsure why? Old and New client

So.. sometimes when I'm folding (CPU and GPU), I could be opening Firefox, or Thunderbird, or maybe LibreOffice, anything really, and the system will hang completely, requiring a hard reset. I'm not sure if its because of the Folding@Home software, but it ONLY happens when Folding@Home is running GP...

Folding@Home mentioned by SRF in Switzerland

Just wanted to mention that Folding@Home was mentioned on Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (https://www.srf.ch/) on the news yesterday. They ran the thing all day, explaining what F@H is and what protein folding does, and how it's helping to find a cure for various diseases including COVID-19.

Re: folding broken?

I, too, have two WU's ready to upload, and my machine is waiting also for two more WU's to download. I'll leave it running through the night, maybe I'll get something.

Also, a big FU to the Wuhan Virus.

Re: Wuhan Corona Virus

Would it be possible to get a section on the website dedicated to showing the amount of WU completed for covid-19 research?

Also, good news from Alberta:

I wonder if these guys are aware of our willingness to help in the research?

This is still beta, but I guess it won't last very long.
Any chance that there will be CPU WU available for this as well?

Re: Wuhan Corona Virus

As I understand it, it will mainly use GPU for WU, correct? By default, it will try to use both your CPU and GPU. You can then delete one type of "slot" if you don't want it. I usually just do GPU, but if they have CPU Coronavirus work, I have a Ryzen 3700x that works very well on the CPU...
