A workunit that appears to be missing one of the files required to run on a GTX 560:

Or possibly, the CC detection didn't work properly.

Part of a large cluster of GPU workunits from various BOINC projects that failed about the same time, so at least one of them did not leave BOINC and the driver in a state where another GPU workunit would start properly.

The problem appears to be in the 364.* series of Nvidia drivers, and most often triggered by a POEM@home task. Once the problem is triggered, a few dozen OpenCL tasks (not necessarily all from the same BOINC project) will give a quick Compute Error, or the whole computer can lock up.

The 362.00 driver does not appear to cause this problem.

i also had this Problem.

first i thought it is a hardwareproblem on my side, but after i read this thread here i downgraded the Driver to 362.00.

it seems it is not only a Problem with POEM@home, because it is not installed here.

until now all gpu-tasks running normal without Errors.

thx for the info about that Driver Problem ;) .
Boinc runs here on:
Intel i7-3770K + IntelHD4000
Android-Stick-ARM-Cotex-A17
Sony-Z5C-ARM-Cortex-A53/A57
Nvidia GT-630 / Nvidia GTX-750Ti

The 365.10 driver is now available, but does not fix this problem.

The problem has also been seen on PrimeGrid.

I am guessing that My PC is also suffering from this malady.

http://asteroidsathome.net/boinc/result.php?resultid=114760634

What is going wrong? I am up to date with my BOINC and Nvidia software (well I thought I was, but there is an update to Nvidia, but from what I have read here, it is not a fix.). But from reading these posts, I need to back-grade my driver. That causes other programs to freak as they know what the latest driver for my boards need to be and as such will then not start. SETI@home_BETA_Test was having intermittent errors, but not as consistent as Asteroids.
