Hi,
I'm an new user from Italy!
I would start mining in a pool using my video card NVIDIA GeForce GT 230M!
I tried to download OpenCL drivers but only developers can download it...

Do you know how can I download this driver? Or do you know another kind of driver that will be okay for my video card?
I know that NVIDIA GT230M isn't the best for mining, do you think I could however start mining with it?

Thank you very much and sorry for my stupid questions, I'm a noob about mining! :)

Hello Rob,

As far as I know there is really no point in mining with NVidia card.
You will get about 10 MHash/s which is very low for comparison I get about 165 MHash/s with my 5770 and this is also low.
For information on how video card perform for mining reffer to this page https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

yep, just like Betsinski said, and to make it even worse you have a laptop, right...? I wouldn't take the chance on a laptop, cpu or gpu bitcoin mining on a laptop is going to get very, very hot because the last thing laptops are known for is cooling, whether you mine with your cpu or gpu it'll be at 96% - 100% load while mining, I just don't see a laptop lasting very long in that environment...

your gpu isn't listed, but if it's similar to the 330M (my guess is a little less powerful?) it should take you about 15-16 days to generate 1 BTC in a pool, so 2 BTC a month (roughly $16 USD), is that worth the risk of frying your laptop...?
