mining on windows


  • Regular Member | Tip digga

    @ghostlander said in mining on windows:

    nsgminer -k neoscrypt_vliwp -g 1 -w 128 -I 13

    Should do better on a HD58x0

    i’ve now installed AMD openCl drivers, AMD SDK and it still comes back with “All devices disabled, cannot mine!”

    Any ideas?

    @digga Its a driver error. You need to downgrade to 14.7 RC3 I believe.

    @chekaz ah alright, if that’s the reason I think i’ll leave it 🙂

    thanks

    @digga Its worth having a go (trying differn’t drivers). It’s really the tricky part of getting mining going on Windows or Linux … The hardest thing is finding the driver and then then all reboots installing it.

    Make sure you boot to safe mode and run the ati / amd clean-up utility, before installing the driver.

    If mining with older cards on Windows 7/8, use either v15.7.1 if you also do some regular work there or v14.7 RC3 if just mining.

    @ghostlander Thanks. I’ve downgraded the driver to give it a whirl.

    This suggests a hash rate of 43 ?

    “C:\nsgminer-win64-0.9.3\nsgminer.exe” -k neoscrypt_vliwp -g 1 -w 128 -I 13

    Should I be able to get more than this on my card?


  • | Tip Lordas

    Very good with such old card, basic settings and such temp.


  • Regular Member | Tip ghostlander

    @digga Should be higher. Delete old *.bin files after changing the drivers or OpenCL SDK. You can also try the neoscrypt_vliw kernel with an increased intensity.


  • Regular Member | Tip digga

    @ghostlander what .bin files are you referring to ?


  • Regular Member | Tip ghostlander

    @digga Compiled kernels named like neoscryptvliwpBeaverCreekgw128l8.bin
