Here are some of the projects that won't run all of which are supported by my GTX 480 and GTX 285.
SETI@HOME Enhanced 6.10 (cuda_fermi)
Collatz Conjecture 2.03 (cuda 23)
Milkyway@home 0.52 (cuda-opencl
I had trouble storing the use-all-gpus segment of code in a file called cc_config.xml. I was able to create the file in the proper directory but it wouldn't store. I used *all files, ANSI, and labelled it cc_config.xml. I copied and pasted the code from other messages from people who wrote about using all my GPU's. I went to see if it stored correctly and the file was empty. I would be happy if only the Fermi crunched. Any explicit instructions on how to store the file or any other files which need to be created would be greatly appreciated. Both GPU's are detected just fine. Please assist in getting my hardware to run.

Posting your startup messages once is enough, you do know you can edit your posts for the first hour?

I had a look at your host at each of the projects you're attached to, you do have Cuda/OpenCL tasks at Seti, Collatz and MilkyWay, but none completed,
i also see you have Multi-Threaded tasks at Aqua, try suspending the Aqua tasks, i suspect that's what's stopping your Cuda computation,

I DETACHED AQUA. SUSPENDED ALL PROJECTS EXCEPT SETI, THEN ALL PROJECTS EXCEPT MILKYWAY, THEN ALL PROJECTS EXCEPT COLLATZ. NO GPU CRUNCHING STARTED. THEN SUSPENDED ALL CPU TASKS LEAVING ONLY MILYWAY CUDA_OPENCL RUNNING. NO HELP. CAN YOU SUGGEST ANYTHING FURTHER?

Please don't shout, if you do another post like that you won't get any more help.

In Boinc's activity menu, make sure 'Use GPU' isn't set to never.

Message 37649 - Posted: 30 Apr 2011, 17:30:32 UTC - in response to Message 37642.  

It worked... Thanks much. Now I would like to get my second GPU crunching. Here is what I attempted already. I copied and pasted the use-all-gpus code from another post into a notepad document and saved it into a file I named cc_config.xml. It created the file but didn't seem to save the code. I used all files and ANSI. Please give explicit instructions on the proper procedure for creating this file. It was saved to C:\ProgramData\Boinc as I was instructed to do. I can no longer fold proteins with my second GPU. Hence, it is currently idle. As far as shouting that was the furthest thing from my mind. I type with two fingers and need to look at keyboard the whole time I am typing. My caps lock was on and I didn't know it. When I looked at my thread I didn't feel like going back and typing again. I did not know this could be construed as yelling. So, I have learned something useful again.

In my last post I used use_all_gpus code and not use-all-gpus. I just noticed that. I also included the brackets. Was that correct?

Tried it again and it works like a charm.. Thanks Claggy.. You nailed it. The code I was pasting had blanks it. I found a link that said this causes problems. With out the blanks it stored and ran like a charm. Sweet success.
