I have a Windows 7 box with a GeForce GT 9800 GPU. I was running BOINC with GPUGRID since May without problems.

Today, I uninstalled and reinstaled BOINC (latest version), and specified to run BOINC as a service. Since then, BOINC cannot find my GPU, and gives me the usual "no usable GPUs found" message in the activity log.

I tried updating my GPU drivers to the latest version (280.26), just in-case, but it didn't help.

What's going on?

You probably did a 'protected application execution' install, uninstall Boinc, and reinstall without that option ticked,

It's not possible to run a GPU when using protected application mode?

Not with windows 7. XP was the last windows version to support GPUs with PAE (service mode).

I'm surprised, because the thread I found mentions delaying starting the service in W7. But the FAQ clears this up pretty well.

Cheers!
