It is better to test 1 hour with power consumption instead of current (which depends on hard drives and other sporadic current increase).

Try to buy a powermeter for AC primary power, plug only computer and check one hour with and without BOINC to get an idea of differences.

drivers ATI 10.7 does not have OpenCl support, either you install OpenCL or more simple you install drivers 10.10 big files version with Opencl inside (take care the last ones 10.11 seem not to have emmbedded OPENCL drivers)

Here is what I have done so far to make it run on Seven 64bits

Stop Boinc

install ATI drivers 10.9 (but try the 10.10 with OpenCl SDK drivers).

install SDK 2.2 (not needed if 10.10 with opencl drivers)

reboot to get all set properly

download the PPSieve-OpenCL file at the begining of his thread.
inside you have files tu unzip in primegrid subdirectory

tpsieve-cl-boinc-x86-windows.exe (futur part of project i think).

Then you have to create a file app_info.xml (see message 26255 on this thread.
Use notepad to copy and paste and save in same directory

By the way, I have not deleted any other files and I was crunching PPS on cpu before with last application (a big file TRP_20100604.sieveinput is still present.

I have selected only PPS work on my Primegrid account preferences.

Then start again Boinc and check if it runs
