Hi everyone!
Sorry to bother, but I've noticed that on my computer only ATLAS tasks are running. I get that CMS tasks were suspended, but why won't Theory or LHCb tasks run? In my preferences they are all marked, so I can't really understand it. Can anyone solve this issue?
Thanks a lot!

I don't have problems in BOINC using most of the cores, I actually need not much. I had lowered the percentage of memory available because other projects would make non-BOINC apps non responsive, but now I set it at 85% when I'm using the computer and 95% when I'm not, and like right now ATLAS is running.


Right now the only thing that seems to me I can do is remove the inaccesible machines in the VB manager.

I've done a research inside my computer, and inside the folder named BOINC there are just some text files..

Those entries should be removed from VBox Manager as they are remains from older crashes.


So I'd better delete them, right?

Thanks a lot for the help!
So, I opened the window you screened, and there are no files that needs to be removed, so that's probably not the problem. I noticed though that there are some other VM inside the VB manager, and these are inaccesible, and in the details they all say this:

Result Code:
E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component:
MachineWrap
Interface:
IMachine {b2547866-a0a1-4391-8b86-6952d82efaa0}

I don't know if it's related to my problem but I don't remember having them when I first installed BOINC.
Anyway, yes, there is one ATLAS request computing, and it hasn't given any problem so far.

Alright, I looked at the recent tasks on the LHC site, and the error is actually that.
I've put all projects to "No new tasks" mode, but I don't know how to proceed with the other steps. Could you please help me?
Thanks!

Thanks a lot, as soon as I get a new ATLAS request I'll let you know if it worked.

Hi everyone!
Sorry to bother, but I can't understand what's happening here. Lately I've been receiving quite a little amount of requests from LHC, and all of them, right after a few hours of computing gave he same exact result: error while computing.
I can't really undestand what's wrong. I'm using BOINC for other projects, and none of them gave this problem. Is there a way you can help me fix it?
Thanks a lot!
