I had completed 12% of my first unit when my computer had an error and rebooted and
now the program seams to got stuck at 0% work done.
I seams that all the previous 12% of work is lost, it seams that my computer is not stable enough to run ClimatePrediction.

Hi, Tomas, welcome to the Project and the Boards.

There is information available about how to test whether your system is stable enough to run CPDN. Hoping you are able to continue...
<a href=\"http://boinc-doc.net/boinc-wiki/index.php?title=How-To_Test_Machine_Stability\">Here.</a>

[Edit] Unless you made a backup of the run, yes, the previous work is lost.

Is it still stuck on zero? If so, try stopping, then restarting. (Boinc sometimes loses track after a Benchmark and thinks CPDN is running when it isn\'t.) If that doesn\'t work, you can terminate that Run and get a new one. (If using boinc 4.45, that can be done from a Tab, Projects Tab, I think. [Sorry I can\'t give specific instructions as I don\'t have a Windoze machine running now -- and I have a faulty memory...])
