All above is a wu run on linux with the version 180 recommended driver

I am running linux mint 7 64bit and win xp pro on dual boot with amd athlon2 dual core 5600 with a GTX 260
All wus come up with the same error

I get the same error on win xp pro with the 182.06 driver ( when i run that side of the comp )

I hope that someone can help me out here !!
Thanks in advance for your time and comments

Have you checked the temperature on the card ? I recommend staying under 85 c. Also, try CPU-Z and switch on the error checking mode. If you get any error, your GPU is ready for an RMA. I have had this happen to me (under XP64) and all my problems went away after I swapped the card.

Thanks Hydropower

The temp is normally around 72c I have now got CPU-z but cannot find any "error checking mode" in the program ?? but i will keep looking, My GPU is only a week old and works fine for graphics but i have not yet been able to "crunch" a single WU with it yet.
My XP is 32 bit and I also run linux mint 64 bit on the same comp and get the same error on both sides.

I will keep trying "things"

Thanks Again

Hi flatron, Your temperature looks very good. I was mistaken about GPU-z, I meant OCCT, a performance measuring tool. Regards, H.

I'm also having problems with a new GPU card (GTX 260 (Core 216)). New today. I've had 3 wu error out already. (639130, 638991, & 638617) One of those errored out on someone else's computer. Using 186.16 driver. XP (32-bit), Q6600 CPU. New power supply (650 Watt). No overclocking. In an air conditioned room.

Hi,
for the Linux machine it seems a driver issue, try the 182.xx driver (although 180 should work). Are you sure that you have installed it correctly?

For the Windows machine, do you have XP 64? If not then you should also install the 182 driver.

Let us know if it works.

Hi Thanx for the replies
On the linux side i now have installed the 185.18.14-pkg.run driver and will be trying it out in the near future, I have a few other issues to sort out on this OS first.

My win is 32 bit and i have just installed the 182 driver and will wind it up soon after the occt tests.

will report back shortly

Thanks for the help guys

I even crunched about 60 seti wu´s a few of them failed but only about 5.
temps are good average 76c.
Any Ideas any one i want to crunch this project and not seti

Hi, I am sorry to hear that it is not working and sympathize with your frustration. Many of us 'have been there'. Did you run the occt test (an hour or so will usually do with the error checking option on), if so what was the result ?

Hi Hydropower

Yes i ran the occt tests and got 134 errors!!!
but i did not save the csv files (silly me)
but the test are underway again now
I have no idea if 134 errors is a lot and if they
are going to stop me crunching here, As i said befor i can crunch Seti with no problem so something works
Will post results of occt when they are done.

WOW ! ONE error is enough to RMA your card... Because it means that a certain calculation, whose results are predefined, has failed to meet the predefined result. Like 100/10 = 8. Lethal for CUDA. That Seti hasn't failed is because it analyzes noise, with your card it probably detects signals where there aren't any (or worse, detects nothing where there was a signal). I'd RMA that card with the OCCT results to the dealer.

It looks like i will have to write a nasty letter to the dealer
and get another card,
thanks for the support

Steve,

an error after 11h means that generally your setup is fine but at some point something goes wrong. Is your cpu / RAM OC'ed? What are your GPU temps during GPU-Grid? Did you try OCCT or other stress test tools? You can also try the 190 WHQL driver, but it likely won't help if 182.50 didn't work.

As you said before, seti worked except for 5 out of ~60 WUs. Seti WUs are much shorter and less stressful, so chances are that you can finish some of them despite the occasional error ;)

Hi ET Apes,
This whole mess started with driver rev 190.xx
I haven't tried any stress tests yet. The computer is in an air conditioned room; GPU temps are ~52C, well under any limit. Stock card, stock clock. (PNY)

My HP running a GTX250 & VISTA 64-bit works fine.

I've upgraded BOINC to 6.6.37 for this last test. Same result after 11 hours 44 minutes - Compute error - file blah blah blah is absent (times 3).

NNT until this is sorted out.

Steve, seems like you're seeing the same problems many (all?) GT200 card owners are seeing after installation of the 190 series drivers. Something is changed and just installing an older driver doesn't help.

Apart from that the message "output file absent" just means that no proper result file was written since there was an error which interrupted the calculation. It's not the cause, just a symptom.

So far mine are running okay, knock on wood. Then again, I am upgrading from a 178 version driver. Maybe there is a registry setting in the 18x series that conflicts with the 190 series ?
