Message 1028 - Posted: 15 Dec 2018, 17:47:10 UTC

I just started on Amicable Numbers last night, with an nVidia gtx 1080 ti and an Intel i9 @ 3.6 gHz, under Boinc. I've been running Boinc for about 18 years. I'm halfway through an Amicable Numbers task and when checking on MSI Afterburner, I don't see any graphics card usage. CPU usage shows as normal (jumps up after the one-minute timeout I have set for Boinc to start).

I've double-checked that all my computing preferences allow gpu use, and both nVidia and Amd checkboxes are checked on my Amicable Numbers computing preferences.

Why don't I see any GPU use, and how can I fix that please?

I should note that I do see my graphics cards fans spinning.
