Hello everyone,

I'm looking for a little advice. I'm running cgminer with Xubuntu Natty on my two rigs and am very happy with the stability and performance. My main PC, that I use daily, is Windoze 7 64bit - and I'm using my spare graphics cards on this to mine when it's switched on. The mobo has integrated Intel HD graphics which I use as the primary connection to my monitor via dvi and secondary to my HD TV via HDMI, leaving the graphics cards free for mining - or so I thought. When mining I still get the "lag" that is associated with mining on my Intel Graphics display, even though it is not being used for mining. Am I missing some kind of setting that will completely separate my integrated graphics from mining leaving it free for general usage without the "lag" issue? I have checked the readme, googled etc but can't seem to find a solution. My PC mobo & CPU support virtualization, so I did try installing Xubuntu on a virtual machine (Oracle VirtualBox) on my PC with the hope of mining that way, but setting up VGA passthrough is beyond my ability/knowledge of linux, as I've only just started using it and have been unable to find a tutorial that I fully understand or feel comfortable using (Linux noob  Grin).

Any help/suggestions or advice would be gratefully accepted.....
