Just wondering if anyone has a cunning solution to the problem below, the obvious one is to go back to running just one processor, which I\'ll do interim, but lets see.

I\'m running CPDN on a dual proc P4 @ 3GHz under Win XP-pro. Runs fine normally with one model on each of the two processors, but when it starts the graphics under the screensaver, one of the models comes up fine, the other crashes in the background, reports back with a \'client error\' and I get no credit for it.

So, does anyone know how to run CPDN on a multiproc system but get the screensaver to choose one (and only one) of the models to display?

Probably best to see if there are any updates to your graphics drivers (usually available free from the manufacturer\'s web site).

The other tip is to turn off the screensaver (set to \'blank\') and use show graphics instead - does this cause the same problem?
