I set up cgminer on my windows comp and want to mine with the CPU, however cgminer says that no GPUs or devices are connected. How can I connect with cgminer to use my CPU? Thank you!

With the current difficulty I"m not sure you'll make much with the CPU.

Check out these two blogs:

cgminer doesn't support cpu mining.  use bfgminer instead.  but you'll just lose money on electricity.
