To start, my system crashed about 2 weeks ago. It appears that my motherboard took a dump. I replaced and updated the Mobo, CPU, and graphics cards. I updated the drivers for all 3 items. I did an sfc /scannow the system found an OpenCL file corrupted. It repaired this. I've checked and replaced the RAM with known good RAM.

I am getting Random crashes in BOINC and system lockups when I attempt to play modern video games after the update. The Lockups require a hard reset of the system. The event logs show no software failures.

One WU in question is here.

I'm not certain what to make of the WU crash and if its related to the system lockup. I'm thinking that the 2 are related.

Considering that you're getting malfunctions while doing two different activities (games and BOINC), it's likely that something on a system level and not related to either the games or BOINC. Considering everything that you changed -- you have essentially a completely new computer -- it's likely defective hardware or damaged/bad Windows or drivers. Since it's really hard to diagnose what the problem is, my recommendation is to start with a fresh install of Windows on a clean disk, if you haven't already done so. If you still have trouble after that, then the problem may be with the new hardware itself.

That being said, I noticed that you're using app_info and a very old version of Genefer. You should upgrade to the most recent stock app of Genefer.

Since you found a corrupt file on your drive it could have bad sectors on it. Find software that will check (and possibly fix) any bad sectors. I once had software that did just that but I can't remember the name. Do a search for finding bad Hard Drive sectors.

I realize its been a bit from my initial post. I ended up discovering that I had to many things plugged into my surge protector. That was the main cause of my lockups.

2 days ago I discovered that my system was unable to read sectors on the SSD. I replaced that last night and cloned the drive over. I was lucky. The SSD was apparently on its last leg and took a few restarts to even bring it up to running. I've been running Milkyway and attempted to run Einstein on my GPU. My GPU or my PC didn't care for that and would crash my system. I've been crunching Milkyway after aborting the einstein work and havent had a problem.

Now I'd like to get PG going again. My dilemma is that the website does seem to want to send me work. This has been an ongoing problem for me. The only way I was able to get work was when I ran the project with the app_info.xml. I was able to run all the Genefer and any PG sub-project that had ATI/AMD attached to it.

Does anyone have an app_info for an ATI/AMD setup?
