According to GUImining im mining, all be it very slowley. 350(ish)KHASH/s.

The problem is that it looks like my worker on BTCGuild is not doing anything, the MH/s reads 0.00 and i cant even see the KHASH/s FIGURE..

Hope some can help

You're mining at 0.3Mhash/s, which probably wont read.
They also do caching data, so you may (or may not, depending on if they read less than 1Mhash/s) see 0.3Mhash/s in ~30min-1hr.

[Also]: Most people who do mining won't run anything under ~100Mhash/s because the return value in Bitcoins isn't worth it.

Yes, more than likely it wont show up.
What you need to look at is the amount of shares you're producing. That will tell you if you're even working (sending hash/s).

You will not be able to mine with you CPU. If you don't have a good GPU, there is no point in mining.

0.3Mhash/sec is too slow for the network. Your shares will become stale and the computation will be wasted. You won't earn anything.

I was just sticking my toe in with using the CPU on this laptop, i knew it was gonna be bad but i thoght id get somthing.

I wann build 10 rigs with high spec GPU'S but after reading my replys on my post on the topic it looks like a waste of time.

I'm CPU mining myself and I think I could give you a few tips. First of all, you might want to know why there was no share sent. You said you mine at 300khash/s. I had 1mhash on my netbook, so I'd make sure you're using a good miner on your place (unless it's an ancient machine, then it's okay; I recommend ufasoft's CPU miner anyway). I mine a share in about 1-2 hours' time. I hacked my CPU miner to see how many hashes does it take me on average to mine a share and it's 4206 Mhashes. With 0.3 Mhash it should take you around 233 minutes (almost 4 hours) to mine an average share. Although, my least lucky share took 36901 Mhashes to complete, so it would keep you busy for 34 hours. It's extreme, though - I have 370 shares in my database so far, so it makes sense to assume the chance is around 0.27%.

With such a slow hashrate I recommend you to choose a mining pool that has a relatively slow hashrate, most preferrably with a pay per share system. I use Eligius, because it would also pay me out for every single share - their system is to pay you out once you reach the 0.33BTC treshhold (which would take you years to complete at this hashrate) or once you stop mining for a week on for a particular address. They pay no fees, since they put their payouts in the 'generated' block header theirselves.

I hope I helped you any little. Smiley
