i run nothing but windows 8.1, and i don't have a problem with errors. this feels like how AMD stopped offering win8.1 drivers... it's all just a push to win10. once win7 stops being supported, you won't have a choice.

the problem lies elsewhere, i'm sure. power outages, charityengine... :)

Are you sure you aren't blocking functionality with NoScript or something?

i went into the BIOS and disabled some dummy settings that i think crunchers should generally know, but aren't talked about in enough places. So here goes:

turn off c1e
turn off c6 state
turn off turbo
turn off cool n quiet
turn off apm

and there was another timing thing that i turned off, i'll figure it out after a restart and post here.

anyway, i've got everything back to full blast 100% and have had NO errors since.

update: i installed even newer GPU drivers and while doing the settings, i ended up finding out that my monitor was dummy switched to shut off every 15 minutes... i'm thinking that Amicable Numbers wasn't able to start the GPU in such a high kernel mode while sleeping... but still only occured in tandem with CSG tasks. so weird. i will post this to their forums shortly as well.

i also increased the RAM and page/swap file availability to 95%, and turned BOINC to "Run always" instead of "Run based on preferences", even though my preferences are set to 100%.

the RAM usage is also reduced quite a bit on the Norm 0.30 tasks. i am now running 8 work units happily. feels very stable and smooth. :D

no worries. i understand the g-check. :P

it seems to occur randomly-ish after about 10 minutes. might even just be when in tandem with amicable numbers, as they are pretty heavy on the gpu. like a mixture of both, maybe?

indeed, that was my first thought as well. i thought it was amicable numbers, so i reinstalled gpu driver and turned down the kernel mode, but the problem persisted. it's been good since i turned off csg. i could try to turn it on again if you like... full disclosure: i've heard of google before. :P

when i began citizen science grid, i was getting bsod's until i reduced amount of work units to 4 at a time. figured it was just RAM-heavy.

i started getting bsod's yesterday... i narrowed it down to citizen science grid. i think it might be the new work units. the error was: KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

my credits have also had a substantial and exponential decrease.


for the record, i have kept the same settings throughout, and running 99.9% of the time. :)

hope i could help!
