Folding pwned my rig

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, so first after installing FAH, my computer loses stability, so I have to decrease my OC by 10%. NOW it has completely f'd up my computer so bad that I an't even get games to load. For example:

I'll try to open BF2142, screen goes black like it normally would, then drops me off back on my desktop. It's like I'm Crashing to Desktop before the game has even started...

So I completely uninstall both FAH and BF2142 and then reinstall BF2142 and observe no changes whatsoever.

If anyone has a fix for this let me know, if not I am reinstalling my windows within the next hour and never even thinking about Folding on this rig again. Just on my Sempron 3400+ if that ever gets going...

are you sure its the folding program that does this because ive never had this problem and installed and ran countless folding programs

did you run a stability proram to check your oc, i would suspect there is a problem somewhere else beside the folding program

F@H seems so passive (in my experience, w/ only minor sending glitches), it's hard to imagine that it would be such a brute. Sorry to hear that it screwed your system so thoroughly....

Yes, and it's over the 8-line limit Please reduce it to fit.

Are you still having memtest problems?

Also, clean out your heatsink...that always gets me after a month or two and I'm like "why ain't I stable?" It's usually because dust in my heatsink raised my temps by 6 or 7 degrees lol

Nope. Ran memtest yesterday and was fine. I'm down to 2.8Ghz from 3.0Ghz and I was stable there on Orthos for 11+ hours before I tried folding, which made me unstable. So I downclocked to 2.8Ghz so I could fold there. Had no crashing problems etc.

I don't think that's why I'm not stable... I'm idling at 28C tonight. 47C on Load...

Are you running the console version or the graphical client? If you are using the graphical client there are some known issues with games. How did you set it up if you ran it as console? A few things to check did you assign it to run idle? How about assigning two seperate machine id's for your differant cores? Those could cause issues also. If you are not sure stop the program, erase the client file, then restart the program. When it asks what priority choose idle, then make sure you choose change advanced options and choose cpu id 1 for the first core and then when you setup the second core choose 2 for it. Hope this fixes your problem. Also make sure you are not trying to run 2 instances of F@H from the same folder.
