So I got an new Pc for chritsmas and now I have a problem with the Boinc client. The problem is that for some reason my GPU processes always fail when they start. But only the Collatz GPU processes fail. The milyway GPU processes work just fine and normal.

The setup i build:
60gb SSD from Kingston with win 10 on it (using always this one to boot)
1Tb HDD with win 7 on it (from my old pc, only using the
files on it but not win 7)
250gb HDD with win 10 and a Partition with 125gb just free NTFS
formated space (from my old pc)
and another 250gb HDD wich I am actually not really using right now

The mainboard is an X99 Extreme 4 with an LG 2011-v3 socket
The Cpu is an i7-5820k six cores 3.30Ghz
My GPU is an GTX 950 (2gb) wich is from my old pc and i will upgrade it soon
to a GTX 980 (in the old pc the collatz GPU processes just
worked fine with the 950)
Right now i have 2x8 so 16gb of randome access memory installed (DDR4)


So the only thing that really surprises me is that the collatz GPU prozesses are not working while the milkyway ones work just fine??

If you need any informations from log files the thing is that i couldn't find any so pls just tell me where they are xD

I already tried unistalling the drivers and installing them again, but it looks like its more a problem of win 10 or my mainboard. Acutally I would still use windows 7 but win7 is not using any usb ports or is not doing anything with them. When i am trying to boot with win7 everything works normal but i can't make any input. The same thing when i am trying to install win7 completly new. I just can't make any inputs.

So if i made any grammer mistakes or other language mistakes in the text i am very sorry ;( I hope you can help me with my problem and i want to apologize for all help you can give me.

We don't need anything, but the Collatz Conjecture project will probably love to hear from you. It's their science application that doesn't run, so you have to report that to them, not us at BOINC. Not unless your BOINC is crashing and burning as well.

Logs can be found under the Event Log, CTRL+SHIFT+E.
Written logs can be found in the BOINC Data directory in the stdoutdae.txt and stdoutdae.old files.

Collatz its forums are here. You may want to do a search before you post, to check if your GPU is supported, or if it needs specific drivers.
