I was running just fine until last week. I\'ve been running the climate change model.

I added einstein@home project to my BOINC Manager v5.4.11 WinXP sp1

Now the globe model is black and not moving when the screen saver kicks on. Why is that?

Here are my disk prefs:
Disk and memory usage
Use no more than 5 GB disk space
Leave at least
(Values smaller than 0.001 are ignored) 3 GB disk space free
Use no more than 10% of total disk space
Write to disk at most every 60 seconds
Use no more than 75% of total virtual memory

Using earliest-deadline-first scheduling because computer is overcommitted.

Adding a new project appears to have put BOINC into \'panic mode\'.
Things should settle down again in a few days once BOINC has worked out a new work schedule for itself.
Remember, it\'s only the long term switching and running of projects that matter.

I have exactly the same problem, except I think mine started when I connected to BAM - previously I connected to SETI and Climatprediction.net directly. I did this back about mid January and it hasn\'t sorted itself out. When I do Show Graphics from within Boinc I can turn on the rotation and various other settings, but they don\'t carry across to the screen saver and when I go back to the Show graphics window the rotation and all settings have been turned off. I have the same problem on two different machines - they both run climatenet and other projects, but none of the other projects are common.

Some/all of the settings in \"climateprediction.net preferences\" for this project got altered a few weeks back when some changes were made to everyone\'s Account page, to make room for the new credit listings.

You need to set things up for what you want again, click Update, then Exit BOINC and restart it for the new settings to take effect.
Pick a time just after the checkpoint counter has reached zero and returned to a high value so that you don\'t lose too much processing time.

And if you haven\'t been making backups, may I suggest that this would be a good time to start?
