1) Message boards : Number crunching : again on on computation error (Message 7880)
Posted 29 Dec 2005 by Alessandro Freda
One question, is true that was write (don't remember where) that changing the preference of "processor usage", "Leave applications in memory while preempted" from No to Yes, can help to solve the problem?

At now after this change on my account, cannot say if there is an improvement.

If useful (hope that the developers can investigate all the errored results) these are the name of my last day failed WUs:


all with ( - exit code -1073741819 (0xc0000005),
the first are about 0 CPU time, the last one instead wasted 2 or 3 hours of CPU time.


2) Message boards : Number crunching : Crunching on a Laptop? (Message 7872)
Posted 29 Dec 2005 by Alessandro Freda
I finally gave in and ordered a Laptop to replace my Desktop PC, but I am curious if I can run BOINC on the laptop without damaging it?

I'll still let my desktop crunch, of course, but if it has a huge effect on a Laptop's components I don't think it'd be worth it. The CPU is a 2ghz Intel Centrino Mobile, if that makes a difference.

CPU of my DELL Inspiron 2200 (Celeron M 1,3 GHz) is working at 100% from the first day (1 june).
I've only spaced out it from the desk (about 1cm), and periodically clean the fan window with a vacuum cleaner.
