So i've been running the Folding@Home GPU Client (currently version 6.23) on my Vista machine for a while w/ no problems...
I installed Windows 7 last week and i've noticed that Folding@Home will crash every-now-and-then bringing the whole computer down w/ a good old BSOD.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this issue? Just not use the client until an update?


My computer is:
AMD: Athlon 64 X2 5200+ 2991 MHz
Mobo: Gigabyte M57SLI-S4 v.2
RAM: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 PC2-6400
OS: Vista 64bit SP2
VC: EVGA 8800 GTS 320MB

I just began running the GPU version on my Win7 machine..I will let you know if I see the same issues. I know this is no help to you now..but perhaps we can find an answer together?

I'm using 191.07 on a 9500GT with W7 and have not had a single crash, but I did find that the 195.39's caused Rivertuner to crash. I'm wondering [:grahamlv:3] if it may be that the older G80 GPU and W7's newer drivers may not be playing well together, have you tried any pre W7 drivers?
