Hello guys,

I wanted to try mining but I'm having some issues.

I use ubuntu with AMD E350 and Radeon HD5850.

I was able to mine with the integrated GPU, but the HD5850 isn't working. It doesnt show up in list adapter, and the fan doesn't turn on.

I have plugged a cable in the output, do I need to connect it to a monitor? (I have none around)

Anyone else with the same issue?

What display drivers are you using?
Lower than 11.7, then yes you need to connect a monitor, or make/buy a dummy plug! However, the fan should still be running regardless!

Do you have the two 6-pin PCIe power connectors connected?

Then you will need to make sure you have your BIOS set to PCIe graphics for primary display.

It's how I do what I do, when I do what I do

Fan not turning on usually means it's not getting enough power.  Make sure your PSU can handle it and the discrete card is seated well and plugged in correctly.
