    Lost 2 days of crunching on GPU

    Not sure if this is something to watch for these days (like from a sneaky Win10 update or something that got through), but I just realized the rig with my 980GX wasn't crunching on the GPU. Opened BOINC and the Collatz WUs said, "Missing GPU". Clearly the GPU wasn't missing, but not sure what the deal was. The only way to get it working again was to install the latest NVidia driver. Just sharing in case it happens to anyone else...

    this also happens when you do a remote desktop connection.

    I concur.
    That's why I use TeamViewer when I can.

    I would have to reboot the system to get the GPU back in BOINC manager after a remote desktop session to it.

    I've had that happen several tiimes on dual GTX 960's and had to do a safe boot uninstall of Nvidia using an uninstall program from the internet and then do a new install of Nvidia drivers.

    RETIRED. NO JOB. NO MONEY. NO WORRIES!

    Crunched SETI Classic to the end.
