First off, I'm sorry and almost sure this has been answered before, but I've looked for a while and tried a bunch of things, and I give up.

I have a 6870 that I'm trying to get mining on Windows XP 32 bit.  Got the catalyst drivers and stream sdk installed.  Tried 11.6 and 11.5  GPU-Z says that I don't have opencl installed.  Guiminer says the same thing.   I am using the card for the display, and the catalyst control panel launches (ie. the card is working).

I had the same problem trying to get a 5830 to work on a different xp 32 machine, but I got it to work on windows 7 64 super easily.  (windows 7 not an option on this--just a via nano with 1 gig)

For this computer, it's either xp 32 or linux.  I might go back to linux, but I followed one of the really popular guides to mining on ubuntu on here, and a couple hours later, after a reboot, my linux got hosed.  Smiley  And the stupid default ubuntu installer hosed my windows xp boot-capability.  So I started all over and figured windows should be easy.  Wink

Thanks for any help!

Service Pack 3 worked!!  For the record, the latest python is also necessary.  Thanks!

Linuxcoin:  I use it on another rig but this one won't boot a usb stick.  Just donated today--I love it.  Smiley

Well, it worked for 10 minutes, then I got a popup ATI error report (saying the card was no longer responding), requesting to send it.  Hashes showed like it was going but no activity in the control panel and low temps.  So I restarted guiminer, it went for 2 seconds, then the computer powered off.  Sad  And not in a gentle way.  I am letting it sit for a bit.

Oops, sorry for taking forever to notice this reply.  I have an XFX.  I have it now at 970.  Seems to crash at 975 or 980.  Were I to do this all over again, I wouldn't have bought XFX cards.
