I can’t get the GPU mining to work and I am at an utter loss as to why it is not working... So here is all the information which may be relevant:

The Computer:
Windows 7 64-bit (SP1)
Intel Core i7 950 @ 3.07GHz
6GB PC3 12800 RAM
ASUS Rampage III Extreme Motherboard
Radeon HD 5750 1GB
850 Watt PSU

Software:
GPU Caps Viewer will run the OpenCL demo
Bitcoin version 0.3.21-beta
     first transaction has 28000 confirmations
     33+ connections
     number of blocks is current; verified repeatedly at http://blockexplorer.com/q/getblockcount
GUIMiner -v2011-07-01

Network:
Router has ports 8332-8333 forwarded to Computer
Firewall is set to allow connections from 8332-8333
MSE exclusions are set for bitcoin.exe, bitcoind.exe, guiminer.exe

Bitcoin.conf
server=1
rpcport=8332
rpcuser=**********
rpcpassword=**********
rpcallowip=127.0.0.1
rpcallowip=192.168.1.### -- where ### represents the reserved address of my PC

GUIMiner Configurations: (2)
1) Solo Config (YES, I know, it isn’t worth it - but I should be able to get it to work anyway)
     - username and password set
     - Bitcoin client path set
     - Bitcoin client launched as server
Server: Solo
Host: localhost
Port: 8332
Username: Set
Password: Set
Device: [0-0] Juniper -- not the CPU
Extra flags: non to start (have tried -v -w128)
CPU Affinity: 0, 4, 5, 6, 7 -- I don’t really see how this could affect it since I am not using the CPU, but...

Click start
lower right hand corner advances to “Connecting...” and sits there for hours

2) Pool mining (BTC Guild)
Server: BTC (any)
Website: listed
Username: Set accordingly
Password: Set accordingly
Device: [0-0] Juniper -- not the CPU
Extra flags: -v (have tried -v -w128)
CPU Affinity: 0, 4, 5, 6, 7 -- I don’t really see how this could affect it since I am not using the CPU, but...

Click start
Console reports:
Setting pool username @ btcguild.com:8332
Using new LP URL /LP
LP connected to btcguild.com:8332
Problems communicating with bitcoin RPC 0 2
repeats the last message continuously...

lower right hand corner also reads “Connecting...” and sits there for hours

---------------------

poclbm.exe:
I have also tried running poclbm.exe in a terminal window with similar results - though I am not as comfortable with the command line. After attempting to connect for a few minutes is quits.

---------------------

Ironically, CPU mining works fine (for what little use it is) - for both solo and pool mining. I really don't get why I can't get the GPU to work...

I have been trying to figure out why GPU mining isn't working for nearly a week. Does anyone have any idea why I can’t get this to work? Any suggestions? Please help!

Got it! - GUIMiner 2011-07-01 doesn't work

I installed GUIMiner 2011-06-14 and bingo, everything worked with my current settings!

If anyone else who has just started is having problems similar to mine, try downloading and installing https://github.com/downloads/Kiv/poclbm/guiminer-20110614.exe

That's all I had to do!

----------

How do I report a glitch in the current build of GUIMiner (2011-07-01)?
