Thanks for volunteering to use your Radeon Graphics card (X1900 class) to help Folding@Home
It's really easy.
# DirectX9 latest version installed. (Some previous versions missed a critical file, and when you run Folding@Home it'll tell you if it's not working)
# Radeon's proper Catalyst drivers, latest versions, from AMD/ATI's site (not Omega drivers...sorry) http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
# Folding@Homes softare from here http://folding.stanford.edu/download.html
you need the one called "Windows XP/VistaGPU client GUI version 5.91 beta5"
http://folding.stanford.edu/release/...a5-GPU-GUI.exe (though I cant make it open from my link ) it's the 4th one down
Download it....and run it.
It'll unpack and the little red cog or gear icon is the thing that makes it start. Keep it on your desktop so you can activate it easily.
To join us, you need to think of a name (use your HEXUS name, or as close as possible) and our team number is 69776
Once it's running you get the little red cog in the bottom right of your desktop and you can right click it to make changes or see your stats, and the team stats. Most important is "Allow Receipt of Work Assigments and Return of receipts larger than 5mb" tick that little box.
And that's it...when it runs it takes a while to get a work load, then if you hover over the red cog icon in your task bar, it tells you how far you are through.
25,000 thingys and it's done. Should take you less than 24 hours. Wait until it starts ANOTHER batch of 25,000 before deciding whether you stop .... or stay and help us
THANKS for joining
