Unable to load units.

Loading starts and then stops ... a server problem ?

I sure have. It's a consistent problem. Have tried all kinds of DNS servers hoping to alleviate the problem somewhat. To no avail... :-(
It's not on our end. This is another problem that's been going on for years and is still not fixed. There was some chatter a few years ago about having the university IT department look into it but as far as I can see nothing has improved.

I have problems accessing the forums occasionally. Sometimes I can barely post. And I have problems accessing my statistics or setup page.

But the work units upload and download fine whenever I check them. If there are problems, they are hidden from me, which is just as well.

The download problems still persist.
Last night and this morning, the download of tasks took up to almost one hour.

There is a router problem somewhere. It affects you differently than me. But it seems to affect everyone somehow.

I reinitiated coverage of GPUGrid about the end of August with four computers and each with its own GPU: Intel Dual Core, Windows XP and GTX 750ti; I3, Windows 10 and GTX1060; I7, Windows 10 and RTX 2080; And Intel Xeon, Windows Vista and GTX1060.

The problem is: The "XEON" powered machine and its GTX 1060 GPU has not downloaded a single task even though dozens of requests to do so occured and the same answers are always given: Either there are (1) No tasks available to meet my specifications OR (2)as I requested:

9/12/2019 9:39:26 PM | GPUGRID | No tasks are available for Short runs (2-3 hours on fastest card)
9/12/2019 9:39:26 PM | GPUGRID | No tasks are available for Long runs (8-12 hours on fastest card)

In the latter answer posted above there are many tasks available and have been available on and off for the last few days, including concurrently with the writing of this observation. I naturally have checked that all boxes are correctly checked, and all preferences are correctly applied.Also I ran tests on several other Nvidia GPU project sites to verify downloading capability from at least 3-4 and found no problem. Would a technician at Grid check this out please as certainly it appears to be a server problem; at least the server is absolutely reporting the status of tasks incorrectly!

Should someone have an idea, I am ready to receive suggestions.By the way, the other three machines are downloading tasks as they become available: The New ACEMDs for the 2080 and the Long and Short tasks for the others.

a Great Project.
PS: Over 100 Long tasks are currently available.

Some of the Xeon processors include graphics capabilities. You may need to check how many GPUs BOINC thinks you have, and if it sees more than one, tell it to turn off use of the one inside the Xeon processor.

None of my v3 & v4 Xeons have CPU graphics. There's a couple of v2 Xeons with graphics. Which Xeons are you referring to???

I was referring to the one Billy Ewell has.

That computer shows:

GenuineIntel
Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU W3520 @ 2.67GHz [Family 6 Model 26 Stepping 5]

I looked up that CPU, and found nothing on whether it has any CPU graphics capabilities or not. I assume that it doesn't.

Two more things to check:

Make sure that the GTX 1060 driver in use was downloaded from Nvidia, rather than from Microsoft. The version from Microsoft usually has CUDA and OpenCL sections removed.

The most recent such driver that is compatible with Vista is known to has at least one bug in the OpenCL section. It may be necessary to find and install a version of the driver that was released, but not the most recent release.

Thanks to: Auram and Robert Miles.

The only thing I changed on the Xeon/GTX1060 computer is to do a "clean install" on the driver(from EVGA) which honestly is several years old. Of course now, there is no way to check on download progress because no tasks are available. But recall what I reported below before: Namely, my machine sends a request for GPUGrid tasks of the Short Run or Long Run category, just like the ones that have been running on two of my other computers, and the answer from the GG server is(shortened): No Short Run tasks and or No Long Run tasks are available. And as I pointed out previously, in many cases when this exact circumstance occurs there are over a combined 100 or so tasks of those types requested waiting in the server inventory. It makes no sense or logic for the server to report incorrectly to a valid request. And, therefore, I honestly don't see how my equipment would be the problem.Should the limitation be within my system then the reply from the server, typically printed in RED, is paraphrasing: "No Tasks are available that meet your preferences", etc.

Another point concerning graphics: When I bought this refurbished equipment, an EVGA GTX 46X GPU was already installed so I can rationalize that any graphic conflict would not exist.

Again thanks and hopefully GG Admin will reply; if not then I will move on.

What Nvidia driver are you using on that 1060???
As I recall current wisdom is that:
431.30 Good
436.xx Bad
Also Xeon CPUs must have the latest BIOS dated summer 2018 or later.

The Driver is 368.81 which I derived directly from NVIDIA. I will check the BIOS later over the next hours and update accordingly. And thank you bunches!
The driver was a clean install.
But I am not sure that the driver or bios will solve the problem. One of my machines is half as old as Moses and it is processing GPUGrid just perfectly.

Thanks again. I really enjoy the BOINC driven distributed computing activity.
By the way, the numeric value in my ID is my year of birth. Lucky man!

I'm sure this old driver version is the reason for the server to not send work for your host. NVidia dropped Windows Vista support in July 2016.
You should install Windows 10 or Linux on that PC.
