I've had two folding machines hooked up to One monitor and since I'm a re-seller I just sold that monitor.. I simply disconnected the dvi and vga cables from the back of the monitor but did not disconnect the cables from the Two vid cards (GTX 260 216 SP's and 8800 Gt) and now both PC's are humming away PRESUMABLY folding with no monitor (a monitor is en route thanks to newegg etc etc)....
IS IT STILL FOLDING or has it stopped? (an earlier forum question of mine yielded a response from someone who said the GPU client needs a monitor to remain active)
Have any of you guys had any GPU CLient crashes... I've had a third machine hooked up via a different GTX 260 card on my big screen TV (which has worked with other folding setups via Nvidia) and was using the SECOND GPU client on the folding @ home site : "Windows XP/2003/Vista GPU System tray client with special viewer for NVIDIA GPU's (installer msi) 6.23 " Only to have it complete five or ten percent and stop... I Remove and re-installed the GPU CLIENT TWICE and still had it do the same thing... Oddly enough I pulled the GTX 260 ( 192 SP via Newegg Open Box) and swapped in a much cheaper 8800 GTX 320 MB (again via newegg open box) and it has been folding without crashes ever since. STRANGELY after snapping in the 8800 GTS and re-booting/ re-starting the GPU folding client a message popped up saying directing me to the "manufacturers website" for a driver update....Which I accpeted.... VERY STRANGE INDEED.... Why would the 8800 GTS use a different folding driver than the gtx 260 and why did the gtx 260 keep freezing up?
