Here is my trouble. No one WU is finishes normally, there always are errors, each time at different running time.

Windows 7 x64, nVidia driver 186.18, BOINC 6.6.36.

May be someone knows what to do? Just downgrade videodriver to older version or there is more smart solvation? I heard that a lot of crunchers running well on Windows 7...

Hi!

I also had troubles with Windows 7 64bit and Nvidia drivers 185.xx. 186.xx and 190.xx on this host recently. Switching back to 181.71 seems to have solved the errors. Since I installed that driver (on July 19th) I haven't had any more computation errors...

I am running W7 64 with 186.18 and BOINC 6.6.37 on multiple machines without seeming to have problems.

I placed back one GTX295 inside both PCs so are now three inside each one with no computing errors problems,I guess there was a power problem?
I'm waiting for 1500W PSs to fit back the 4th cards.
