"Stoanee" was a good lil workhorse until he was decommissioned. Primarily all GPU power. Never gave me any problems at all, not like his namesake.

GPU folding has never been that reliable. The most trouble-free clients have always been the uniprocessor and SMP clients.

This, except it's actually low-power 3D clocks, not 2D clocks.

Uninstall old drivers and GPU Folding
Boot into Safe Mode and run Driver Cleaner
Install New Drivers
Install EVGA Precision Tool and make custom profiles as necessary
Install Folding

Try that.

What's your temps and clock speeds? Is your GPU getting enough power? And you might consider going Windows Vista or Windows 7 as there's no lag while folding. Plus Windows 7 > Windows XP imo.

Did better than that, complete reformat. Upped the PCIE volts. Like I said, everything ran fine for two months then.........pfft.

Seems like an unstable OC, mine used to do this. Downclock + restart = 2x the PPD.

isn't that what it defaults to after a crash (say, due to too much OC?)

What about games? Does the GPU run properly when playing games?

I don't think the PCI-E volts do much...

He is running stock and has reformatted. I'm feeling frustrated from here for him. I'm wondering if he had the unfortunate luck of both cards crapping out, or possibly something up with the vga bioses.

How about underclocking your cards? Just as a test.
