If you are new to Foldit, here are detailed instructions to get you started:
If you want to fold proteins, know that there are many ways to play and this variety is the main value of Foldit:

- try all puzzles not only "beginner" ones,
- fold first the ones you like the most,
- try by yourself to understand what works and what doesn't,
- ask for tips in global when you think you doesn't understand something.

Make sure you have followed these tutorials:
- lonely sheets,
- lock and lower,
- rebuild,
- structure and rebuild,
- control over clashing

before starting this puzzle.

Whatever you do, don't blame the motherboard.

She's burnt out enough as it is.
