When you have no flags, does the log still show flags as shown in your previous log post?

Not sure if you have tried either of these, but just want to make sure.
 
With just the GPU3, did you try with just the -forcegpu nvidia_fermi flag, or with that flag and -advmethods?

One thing I found was when I run GPU-Z,  it reads ZERO in the shader box and memeory size.
 
Edit: nevermind,  had to update GPU-Z

One last thing you could try is uninstall everything with fah, uninstall the graphics driver run driver sweeper in safe mode. Then re-seat  the gpu in the pcie slot reinstall new Graphics driver then reinstall f@h with the console client since it tends to be more stable.
 
I know its a pain to do all that , But if it fails after all that maybe we should start looking at the card more.

Already been through all of that.  I even went as far as a full OS reformat at one time.   I guess one last thing I could try would be to move the 460 to my other rig and try the 260 on this one.  If the 260 works,  then I know it is a card issue.   I do also have a ATI hd3870 I can try.  Is it possible to run the atio and the 460 in the same system just for a test?

Wow this card really is a pain. I guess the next thing would be to check it for artifacts. Also does it have any problems gaming?
 
Yea that would help rule out a card issue also swap places with the 2 cards see if either one folds, Let me know how that goes when you do it.

I don't exactly get the performance I was hoping for over teh 260.  I actually get about the same fps in BFBC2,  but I'm also running it in dx11 now too.
 
I have run OCScanner for well over an hour with no issues.

It's definately an issue withe 460.  I swapped my 260 back into this rig and folding started just fine.  Put the 460 in the other rig that was running my 260 and 250 and get teh error starting folding core on that machine as well.  Always thought this 460 underperformed.

At least we know its the card and not something with drivers or anything F@H Related.  That was sure a painful process I'm sure, At least if its EVGA you got the support.

Fortunatley if things go as planned this week,  I'll be using my step up to get a 470.  Now I just wonder if it's even worth putting the 460 back in my current rig?  I jsut hate losing the points I was getting running my back up rig 24/7

You could always use it to game on since it doesn't fold , and keep the 260 running in the other rig 24/7.
