That sucks. I had that happen to me twice. Both were 71 point tinkers too.

received the error at frame 127, so the question is what happened at that frame?
the program runs in system memory, and each checkpoint is written to disk. besides testing system ram, try and run scandisk to check for problems. perhaps you can think of some other tests to perform to verify system integrity?

btw, i posted a copy of the fahlog file at fah forums. http://forum.folding-community.org/view ... 9552#50339
also, please post the wu info such as protein series, and the specific wu name, and ip address of the server that this wu came from. post that small block of info along w/ the error part. the ip address, and wu info is important, as they will look into it if they know where they must look!

just an idea- make certain to stop folding properly. this means pause, then quit the graphical, and ctrl -c for the console.

just in case you don't know (or anyone else)- right click systray icon to shutdown the graphical version.

pete - is this the same system that pulled the other error as well? Mayhap something is wrong with it.

No, a different system. The other one I had an error on has since completed a unit O.K. I took Len's advice and checked out the HD, its O.K. Checked the Memory best I could with Sandra Pro and it tested out O.K too. I'll just put this down to experience, if it fails again I'll get a new core. If it continues to fail I'll replace the memory and run Spinrite on the Disk, which BTW although 6 months old has run for less than 300 hours.

Cheers,

Pete
