    Hi Chaps,

    This should be super quick I'm guessing.

    I've decided to get into folding. I used to do a heap of BOINC but have been out for a long time.

    I've installed the client and my CPU is cranking. The client lists 0 GPUs however, and if I try to add a GPU slot then I receive the error "On client "local" 127.0.0.1:36330: No available GPUs".

    Specs Info:
    Windows 10
    5960x
    2x 980ti's in non-default PCI-e slots if that matters
    Latest Nvidia drivers

    I tried a fresh install and deactivating SLI. Do I need to do a driver roll-back?

    I found a couple of references to this on the guru3d forum, but the solution wasn't clear.

    Thanks!

    Hmmm ... don't worry - sorted.

    Apparently I had to go to https://fah-web.stanford.edu/file-releases/public/ to grab the content from GPUs.txt and update my local GPUs.txt file at C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\FAHClient\

    I re-started the FAH client and my GPUs are now detected.

    Odd, but there you go ...

    Glad you got it working.

    Appears to be a common problem with windows 10.
