Hi. Is this a problem with BOINC client, server or both?

My version is 6.4.5 with 8400GS Mobile and past 256 MB video RAM.

Its not a problem with BOINC but rather the project needs more "grunty" hardware. Unfortunately your chipset isn't on the recommended list (its there but not hilighted in greeen). You can find the recommended list here.

Being a mobile chipset it doesn't have many shaders and probably couldn't finish in time. Work units have a 7 day deadline on here.

My chipset is listed there, even though it's not a recommended one.
I cannot pinpoint the problem but the quantity of RAM required is simply extraneous. It must be a typo or a miscalculation on the server.
Let this topic remain as a postsign for somebody who runs into the same problem.
