    I install BOINC, in a computer and has this graphic card:

    gtx 560.

    And can´t crunch BRP WU, because BOINC dosen´t recognize the GPU, dosen´t appear in the gpu's box, here:

    thanks in advance.

      Have you reviewed the requirements in this thread?

      In particular is your driver up-to-date enough?

          Can you have a look at the BOINC messages? Does it tell anything regarding your GPU?
          (e.g. mine says at startup "NVIDIA GPU 0: GeForce GT 220 (driver version 28026, CUDA version 4000, compute capability 1.2, 1024MB, 160 GFLOPS peak)"

            Did you install BOINC in Protected Application Execution (aka service) mode?

            Win XP was the last version to recognise a GPU in that mode.

              If its the XP machine you might want to upgrade that BOINC client. 6.10.18 is a little old. The current release version is 6.12.34 for Windows.
