F@H with GTX 550 TI help!

I'm new to F@H and i could use some help. I'm running the V7 client and have the slot set for GPU. It says the status is running but the ETA is unknown and the progress bar doesn't move. Should i just wait for it to start? does it normaly take a while?

If anyone has any ideas please let me know.

Change your view to Expert in the drop down menu and go into the Log tab to see if the client is running properly.

I'm not sure how to check, to me it looks like everything is running fine. below is a copy of the log file.

It show this:

*********************** Log Started 2012-07-01T01:34:07Z ***********************
01:35:19:WARNING:WU01:FS01:Detected clock skew, adjusting time estimates

could this be a problem?

I'm no expert with Nvidia folding, but one of my folders uses a quadro (Nvidia) FX580. V7 client does not show any WU information (progress, TPF, reward, etc). However I know that it's still folding because I can see the numbers show up periodically on extremeoverclocking.com. Your card should still be folding, even if it is not indicated. Way To Fold

Your log looks fine. I've seen the clock skew warning when I did VMWare folding, and it returned results just fine. When I fold on my 550Ti what I check for to see if the F@H is working is the heat and the GPU usage, which should be higher than playing any game :haha:

Note also there's a few nVidia drivers that F@H doesn't like. I can't find the post, but with my experience anything between the driver first released for the 550Ti and the 285 series of drivers (non-inclusive) did not work, although they failed immediately. The 285 and 295 series of drivers worked for me.

Hi Lucasrivers,

Further down the HWC's forum home page is a Folding section dedicated to all the folders.:thumb:


I found a post that may help you out.


Good luck and have fun

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...lding-all.htmlhere is my thread I started on the same issue some time ago. i was so frustrated with it that I simply gave up on it. too bad : from the screenshots, sometimes it was an amazing folder. this list https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?...Bg&w=100&h=750 has no GTX550ti in it, some GTS450 but no 550s. You think is a coincidence? try messaging Arinoth, I got the card from him by then, maybe he remembers the right driver versions that were working fine

you might want to try either 266.71 or 267.59 set of drivers. These 2 seem to work well for the 550GTX. found it explained here GTX 550 Ti for folding
