So I've just started today, running the original bitcoin client. It's currently downloading blocks. I ran guiminer and used it to launch bitcoin in server mode. I also edited my bitcoin.conf as I've seen recommended before (posted below). And I also tried using a shortcut trick by adding -server to the target field in the shortcut properties. Problem is, when I first started guiminer, it said in the lower left corner "Downloading blocks" which looked right, because that's what bitcoin was doing. Now however it says "Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC" bitcoin is still downloading blocks, should be almost done, but I'd like to know what's going on? Also, should my cpu usage be elevated even when it's just downloading blocks? or does that mean bitcoin is already computing as well?

bitcoin.conf reads

#JSON-RPC
server=1
rpcuser=***
rpcpassword=***
rpcallowip=all


And yes, I've checked the similar thread in the forums

try restarting bitcoin. or use bitcoind getinfo to see if rpc is working

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Restarting didn't work. I ran bitcoind, a terminal window popped up and is completely blank. Can't type anything into it. But guiminer now says bitcoin is downloading blocks again. Any ideas?

Note: I'm not very proficient with windows command line.

I tried running bitcoin until all blocks were downloaded, then using guiminer. Again, no good. I tried launching bitcoind, since it made some difference while downloading blocks. But again, it opens an empty terminal window, and using guiminer brings the "problems communicating with bitcoin RPC" again.

Bumping out of desperation. Any ideas on what I might not have tried?
