Hello all, I have mined before on my desktop thats super old but it has been a while since I have done it, Looking to start up again using my laptop but each time I start guiminer it gives me "nothing to mine, exiting".
When opening up Guiminer it says that I dont have openCL support but using gpu caps view under the main video card -> openCL it lists OpenCL 1.1 CUDA 4.2.1 - CU: 9 @ 1080MHz (GPU)

My laptop is an Alienware m11x R2 with an i5 processor, 8gb of ram and an nvidia geoforce gt335m gpu.
Any and all assistance is appreciated, if you need more just ask and I will provide.

Mining support for Nvidia cards is spotty at best. Your thermal profile for mining on an Nvidia gaming laptop will A: cost you more in electricity than you get in bitcoin and B: will raise your laptop temperatures to unsafe high levels.

Heat kills laptops quick too...   Save that nice piece of equipment for gaming ;-)  Hell, I may even be interested in buying it for BTC
