    GPU missing?

    Hi guys,
    Any idea why the rig with the NV GTX 980 says "Missing GPU" now in BOINC? I'm typing on it so the GPU is working...at least the screen part.
    Thanks for any help.

    You've been crunching with also, correct? Then, in the middle of that, it decides it's missing? First try a reboot and see what happens.

    I've had the same problem and I have it everytime Windows updates. You will have to restart the computer in safe mode and un-install all the nvidia drivers using a driver un-installer like DDU fron Wangard. The link is posted somewhere on the forum but I can't find it right now. It works for me. I just keep the latest Nvidia driver on my desktop and re-install it everytime Win updates. It is a pain but I have mentioned it in the Win 10 preview forums.

    Edit....Here is the link to the latest version.

    Yea, what he said. If you are running Win 10, beware. I just had my onboard Sound mysteriously start failing this morning thanks to Winders Updates. Couple of reboots and remove device/Search for updated drivers and I thinks it's stable again, but just gotta love those SBD updates M$ now insists on inflicting upon everyone.

    I don't blame you one bit! Good thinking.

    THANK YOU for the advice, finally got done at the office and was able to give it a try. Worked perfect, she's crunching away again.

    FWIW 99+% of windoze updates are useless for the casual user. Especially so if your windoze machines are dedicated crunchers. I disabled updates long ago and have never had a single problem. IMHO Win10 is nothing but glorified spyware. If you have read or seen an article from ZDNet about not trusting the above link be aware that the author (Ed Bott) is a bought and paid for windows shill. Just sayin.
