Dear all,

I am running BOINC on some PCs and the last day I am dealing with an issue.
One of the PCs has a GPU but it hasn't got it's own monitor.
When cable of monitor is unplugged, GPU tasks are going on hold. When cable is plugged, tasks are running again.
My question is if there is a way to run GPU tasks without a monitor connected on the PC.

Best
