[Solved] Problems folding with Phenom II 840 Windows 7

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Well I'm trying to fold with my Phenom II 840, but the WU won't seem to start. It just sits there doing nothing. But it does start working when I enable the GPU client to run with it.

And when it does start working, it only gets around 2000 - 3000PPD, while the HD 6950 is getting about 8000PPD or more.

Any thoughts?

The GPU folds perfectly, and is bringing in lots of points, it's just the CPU that's wont work.

Just thinking out loud, what if the config file was different between the v7 release and the v7 beta client?

Can you post your config file and perhaps try completely removing all data of the beta client and installing the release?

I think the files normally left behind are in the App Data\ Roaming file of your user directory.

if you set the gpu client to finish, does the CPU keep folding after the gpu stops?

as for the ppd, that does not sound too far off with an AMD GPU folding and taking up cycles. Pause or finish the GPU and see the ppd rise.

What is you chip clocked at? My 830 is at 3.6 and I am getting about 9k ppd without any GPU folding.

Great news. I Installed Linux Mint to a spare hard drive I had lying around, and my Processor started folding again!

It's getting an average of 14,000PPD. Go little Phenom II!
