My GTX 550 Ti not folding at all
1 Attachment(s)
I received yesterday my 550 Ti and is not folding at all. While it will show activity when stressing it with Furmark, Fah says sleeping since last night. I have the latest certified driver from Nvidia, I think is 275.33 taken directly from nVidia website. I am using the 6.41 client GPU V3. Using the v7 client will show the card as 590GTX Fermi 110 and will not engage the process, stays at ready all the time. FAH gpu tracker says the client at gpu 0 is running but 0 PPD sinca last midnight. Any ideas?

Thats very odd as I was getting 10k PPD during the CC off of that card specifically. I know tis a stupid question but do you have the power plugged into the card?

yes, works fine if i start furmark, msi afterburner shows full load. I also have an internet connection issue right now, could it be because of that? not receiving WU?

stopped again after a single unit.

Sounds like its having a hard time connecting to the sever to get work units. If you are having unreliable internet right now it could be the cause

seems like that, I will give some time to my ISP, apparently the issue started last night. My hopes came back after seeing it folding, took only 77 minutes to complete one WU. PPD wise it showed almost a 2.5 times increase over the 5770.

Its not your ISP, looks like quite a few of us are having issues connecting and downloading/uploading work units from the servers

yes, but unfortunately today it happens my ISP has an outage. Whoever is with Colbanet in Montreal today, there is an outage. I am seriously thinking about goinf back to Acanac. Higher speed of Colbanet is their only advantage over other ISPs that also offer unlimited traffic.

folding again with gpu3. Project 10948, says 16825 PPD, took 10 mins to process 12%. i don't know what to believe anymore. Was it a server issue? was it a card issue? I updated the vga bios yesterday from 1.04 to 1.06 with Live Update. what can I say, kinda a rocky start for the folding. Maybe the card is too new and the client is not that well optimized for it. V7 client however definetely does not work with it yet. Waiting for the next release.
