Default F@H issue

So guys, next week my ATI 4870 burned out and I get a GTX 275 to replace it. I receive the card today, remove ati driver unplug the computer put the new card in with last Nvidia driver and now. 15 second after opening the folding client it tell me this.

Folding@home has run into a serious error ruuing the core. and will shutdown.

What the hell is happening you have any idea guys?

Need more info from the FAHlog.txt file, at least the error number.

Worst case, check your oc (if any), delete the Work folder and the Queue file and restart the Client.

I prefer to do this when switching new GPUs.

Remove drivers
Restart comp into Safe Mode
Run Driver Cleaner
Turn off comp and swap GPU
Log in and install new drivers

And as 3.0 said, we need the F@Hlog file.

ATI and Nvidia cards don't use the same cores. Go into your folding directory and delete...

- any and all FahCore_**.exe files
- the work folder
- queue.dat
- unitinfo.txt

Once that's done, restart fah and you should be good to go.
Think you can overclock? Then show us what you got!
