    I reinstalled it, and it is working ok, but that is what happened last time-- worked a while, then got buggy. Will wait a while before I try the diagnostic thingy. Will get back to you. Thanks.

    3mg, another trick is to not leave the f@h program running, minimized. I have seen references that there is, allegedly, a memory "leak" in it which can make things go wonky if true. Just open it, have a look-see, and close it by exiting, can't hurt. That may have been an older version being discussed there, but again, it can't hurt to close it when not using it. The client will keep running even with the monitor program closed.

    Exactly what I think happened. Let it do its job. Not easy for a newbie.

    I'm not a newbie but I do like to watch progress. What I do is watch the log file using notepad. Non intrusive and minimal memory impact but it is a "static" snapshot when you look at it plus you have to do the math to figure out the TPF (time per frame, 1%).

    A morning check when I first get on the computer is sufficient.

    OK, for the heck of it, I opened web control, and it started flashing at me.
    I did that, and no problems were found.

    I did another download, removed the program, re-installed, and still get the flashing screen. I'll just use it in Chrome, and be happy.

    That's not the purpose of dxdiag. What it does is provide a snapshot of what's in your computer (video, RAM, processor, etc.).

    Were you trying to run the F@H client at max?

    OK. Will get the file to you. Yes, at max.

    There's the problem. I suspect your machine is on the lower end of the spectrum as far as specs go. Running it at full tilt boogie leaves you little room for doing other stuff.

    This is my machine:

    Code:
    System: Host: Bodacious Kernel: 4.10.0-37-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)
    Desktop: Cinnamon 3.4.6 (Gtk 3.18.9-1ubuntu3.3) dm: lightdm Distro: Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya

    Memory:  16GB
    Graphics: Card: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Device 67df bus-ID: 01:00.0 chip-ID: 1002:67df

    Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz
    GLX Renderer: AMD Radeon RX 480 Graphics GLX Version: 4.5.13453 - CPC Direct Rendering: Yes
    
    Even I have issues getting into some things if I run the client at full.

    For yours, I'd set it at medium or even the lowest setting.

    Yeah, it was a rehabbed school computer I got direct from Dell for something like $100. @Uncle Willie found it for me. Major emergency.

    retired1, are you running f@h on the cpu as well as the graphics card? I have the same, maybe different clock speed(?), CPU and don't run f@h on it because it does slow down the PCI handling. My mobo is an Asus ROG though and the OS in Win7/64. I also run Blue Iris surveillance software on that machine which may have some effect when folding with the CPU.

    On this craptop, an i5, the CPU is the only thing folding and it's at max. No real interference with any applications on it as far as I can see. If/when I add a third GPU to the desktop I'll stop folding on the craptop.

    On the Winderz side, yes, I'm allowing both the GPU and CPU to fold with an average point tally of close to 300K per day. That's with just one GPU, too.

    I'll probably get more done (and that not much) if I run it in Chrome. I suspect my computer has blacklisted the program forever. Every little bit helps.

    I guess Blue Iris uses more CPU than I originally thought. If I let the CPU fold, Blue Iris running, my GPU output drops about 50K per day on each GPU and the CPU sure doesn't make up that much difference, only does about 7K per day. I can't shut off Blue Iris for security reasons and running another machine 24/7/365 just isn't practical for me.

    Boy, sure a quiet thread. Where'd everyone go? It sure would be nice to see Irwink, cinetrope, dusty, nach and all the others back folding again.

    I hate to complain, but the updates in my signature have stalled for almost a week now. Anyone else seeing that?

    I still watch this forum Roland. I don't have a F@H signature, so I don't know anything about that. I have been having new problem lately. The last couple of weeks, I've only been getting the base credit for my WUs instead of the estimated credit. I started a thread about it on the F@H support forum. They think it has something to do with a server software update on a new project.
