Hey,

Im new to the bitcoin thing and I'm trying to start mining. I followed a tutorial from youtube in order to mine in GUIMiner, but, when I try to mine it says No OpenCL devices, or Connection problems. It just doesn't mine.

Sometimes it also says: "Nothing to mine on, extining..."

Can someone please help start mining?

Thank you.

First off, GUIMiner is an old piece of crap.  Don't use it.

Second, you'll need to give us a clue as to what your computer's specs are.  What sort of graphics card have you got?  What OS are you running?

Thanks for the advice. In the video it worked for the guy's computer but ok. I trust that you are experienced.

My computer is a laptop HP with intel i5. Im not into computers so i dont know how to specify it more, but ill probably purchase a new laptop.

Any reccomendations for the graphcs card?

USE AMD Radeon r9 280 or 290
ROI is best with them

If it's an i5, then the graphics are built in to the CPU.  You'll get about 5kH at best from that, which is totally and utterly pointless.

If you want to mine with that laptop, you'll have to buy a USB miner, rather than a graphics card.

Nice to see you actually read the thread before posting.  Roll Eyes  Good luck getting a R9 280 or 290 working in a HP laptop.  Herp-a-derp.
