I'm using the GUIminer V2011-06-14 (and everything bundled with it); and for a few days, just did the CPU mining, getting about 12mhash/s. Then, I researched the LAPTOP I'm using, and discovered that it had a NVidia Quadro XM3700 (I don't see it listed in the bitcoin.blog on mining machines specs)
I'm using a Dell Precision M6400 with a Quadro FX 3700:
The Quadro® FX 3700M high-end mobile workstation graphics solution with its revolutionary unified architecture, delivers 1 GB memory, excellent image quality, and optimized visual computing application performance pushing the limits of a 17" mobile workstation. The reference standard for OpenGL 2.1, DirectX 10, and Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 3700M enables next generation applications with new levels of interactivity to meet the demands of CAD engineers, graphics designers, and other technical design professionals.
NVIDIA® CUDA™ Parallel Computing Processor
Unleashes new capabilities with 128-core CUDA parallel computing processor to solve highly complex challenges such as real-time ray tracing, video encoding, and interactive volume rendering.
When I downloaded all of the new drivers for the card, I was able to connect via the OpenCL miner in the gui, but am only able to push about 25 mhash/s, if I run 2 miners, thye each do about 11.6 mhash/s. (I can still run my CPU miners at about 12 mhash/s in tandem, for a total of about 32 ~ 38 mhash/s spread across CPU miners, and and OpenCL miners.
For S&J's I decided to try and launch from a comd line (running WinXP), so I could see what was happening (then I discovered the console feature in the GUIMiner too). Anyhow, I've tried all myriad of external flags -v -w128 or 256 or 512, etc, various -f values. whenever I try to break the 25mhash/s on any of these, which I can do, and actually get
up into the 1 - 3 Ghash/s range, but with the following... I keep getting the warning: job finished, miner is idle
... and I never seem to accept any jobs.
Below is my attempt to glean anything from the command window, which is essentially the same thing I get from teh GUIMiner windows and conslol log.

I've searched through numerous forums and blogs, and severel reference the -v -wXXX tags, but this doesn't work to increase the work, only when I increase the -w to 256 oe 512, do I actually see a spike in the mhash/s, but then, I keep getting these 'miner is idle messages.
Given that card, can ANYONE recommend some way for me to get the most out of it? I've not explored more in detail the CUDA opearions, as those didn't seem as proficient as the OpenCL, nor has phoenix seemed to differ much.
After 5 days of mining, I'm up like 0.04563342 (yeah)
